Metal Tile Roofs for Medium to High-density Residential Houses

According to Auckland's Unitary Plan, the supercity will need 400,000 more homes in the next 30 years. The new Unitary Plan recommends greater housing density for Auckland. Builders and developers are getting very busy on the supply part of the solution, helping the supercity build more and more houses on smaller sites.

ANCO, a property development company, has recently purchased a block in Flat Bush and built nine houses on it. Footprint constraints common in the current environment meant that ANCO built up rather than out, but this did not mean they were controlled by low pitch design as seems to be vogue. Using metal tile on 22.5 degree pitch roofs gave their designs the look they were after, with the speed of installation that metal tile offers. An added benefit was the peace of mind that higher pitch roofs deliver when considering roof space moisture and ventilation. Minimum pitch for pressed metal tiles can be 12.5 degrees for example Bond, Classic, Tudor, Roman and Antica.

Photos above show all Gerard Stratos textured roofs have been installed for this medium to high-density residential house development. The Gerard Stratos textured-finish tile features the wood-grain appearance of traditional shake. Its deep-ribbed profile is designed to enhance the shadow lines and create visual contrast. With a wide range of colour options, Stratos textured tiles are a good fit for any brick or stone wall claddings. Furthermore, this look can be combined with all the benefits of stone-coated steel: exceptional weather and fire resistance, and a long life.

Established in 2010, Anco holds high quality building and the satisfaction of their customers as core values. Under the new Unitary Plan, Anco can build more houses for New Zealanders without sacrificing their core design beliefs.
