A character home is Wellington was being renovated to protect its important resident form future earthquakes. The home featured a heavy Marseille clay tile which needed to be removed and replaced with an alternative that was substantially lighter.
The new roof needed to be visually-appealing and tie into the character of the home, ensuring its final finish had an authentic look.
David Pawson, from Peddle Thorpe & Montgomery (PTM) Architects, looked at a number of possible roofing systems for the home which were presented to the client.
Viking EcoStar was recommended as it provided not only the desired look, but offered a lighter weight roof, a 50 year product warranty and a strong plywood substrate which aided in the earthquake strengthening of the building.
The traditional profile EcoStar tile in midnight grey colour fitted the criteria perfectly for the home in Wellington; it was lighter in weight and would create a grand and authentic finish.
