A stunning residential property overlooking Lake Wakatipu was in its early stages of a complete renovation when the main contractor discovered the disastrous state of the building’s roof structure when removing the existing steel roof. The old steel roof needed to be replaced due to general wear and tear. It was long past its prime and was leaking, but when the material was removed, it exposed the decayed structure and an assortment of spacings between purlins; ranging from between 600-900mm to 1200mm.
Unfortunately, it was at this point, where the roof renovation graduated from just replacing the old roof cladding, to the need for a whole new structure which would include a new substrate, and brand-new waterproofing material.
The homeowners decided that since they would be paying for a new roof structure, they may as well go the extra mile, and invest in a warm roof system. The challenge they had was that they still wanted to maintain the metal roof look due to the existing aesthetics of their home.
