Dual System on Lifestyle Home


A family from just out of Cambridge in Tamihere were looking to create their dream home overlooking the Waikato River.

They were building an English-style country estate, so required a roof that was in-keeping with the architectural style of the house and its picturesque life-style environment.

With the need for an overall roof specification that was sympathetic with the design, durable and able to accommodate both pitched and low-slope sections; two different roofing systems would be required.




For the pitched sections, the family went with Landmark from the Viking CertainTeed Asphalt Shingles range. This was chosen because the family liked the soft shadow lines which renders a smooth, refined look that is both striking and classical. They also liked the fact that it was backed by a 30-year product warranty.

For the significant low-slope section of the roof, a robust waterproofing membrane was required. The family decided on Viking Enviroclad as the wide sheets and heat-weldable technology meant fewer seams. This promised a watertight solution, and the product was warranted for a 20-year period which would deliver the assurance the family was looking for.

The Enviroclad Membrane was installed first on the low-slope section of the roof; rising part-way up the pitched sections. Once completed, the CertainTeed Shingles were installed on the pitched sections; overlapping the Enviroclad Membrane sufficiently to negate the chance of any water finding its way into the building.

This allowed the family to achieve the look they desired without making any design concessions.

The family wanted the best result, and that is what they received with one of Viking’s Approved Applicators. They had the perfect roof to complement the perfect house. The Landmark roof suited the architecture and the low-slope section was fully watertight. The quality of the materials and the proven, systematic method of installation, meant that they also received a roof they could trust, with further assurance supplied by the robust warranties backing it.
