The owners of this stunning villa in Auckland's Herne Bay had a real problem. They needed a new roof, however part of the existing corrugated roof system had originally been constructed below the 8° roof pitch allowable under today's building code when using corrugated roofing. Initially there were only two possible options and both of these were rather unpalatable for the owners:
Option 1: Re pitch this section of the roof to 8° at tremendous cost.
Option 2: Instead of using corrugated roofing, reroof the house with a five rib trapezoidal type roof profile which would not be in keeping with the historic appeal of the house.
Fortunately, their roofing contractor Darryl Lowndes provided a solution. He had recently learnt of a revolutionary new corrugate product by Roofing Industries called True Oak Corrugate which offered all the attributes required for the project: incredible strength, additional water carrying capacity, aesthetically pleasing close lapping edges, and most importantly in this case, was able to be installed down to a minimum roof pitch of 4°.
An attractive project in keeping with its historical value, and significant cost savings to the appreciative homeowners.
