Epiclad by Viking Roofspec and Butynol by Ardex are just two of the quality synthetic rubber membranes that we apply to low-pitch and flat roofs across Christchurch and wider Canterbury.
FOR BOTH COMMERCIAL ROOFS AND RESIDENTIAL ROOFS, WE HAVE THE IDEAL WATERPROOF MEMBRANE.
Your house might have an original low-pitch roof that needs repairing. Maybe you’re working with an architect who is suggesting a striking roofline. Or perhaps you are simply tired of walking black chalky dust into your bedroom from the ageing upper deck. From new applications to repair solutions, we have the waterproof membrane for you.
It’s likely you’ve heard of Butynol, but that’s not the only membrane we are certified to install. Epiclad and dekMASTER are two more leading products which may be the solution to your specific roofing (or decking) scenario. We are always happy to offer advice on which product is perfect for you.
And you might be surprised at just how swiftly waterproof membranes can be installed.
The waterproof membranes that we install have already been protecting Christchurch buildings for decades. They demonstrate excellent elasticity, tensile and elongation properties, and they are virtually indestructible by the elements. The wide synthetic rubber sheets cut down installation time and offer your roof optimal waterproofing capabilities with fewer joins.
NON-SLIP WATERTIGHT DECKS
Don’t forget your decks and balconies! Just like your roof, they are surfaces which need protection from moisture. We put our experience with waterproofing membranes to good use, installing fully cured vinyl resin materials, which are perfect for exposed decks. This eliminates the need to paint or stain wooden decks. It resists mildew and rot and will not peel, chip or crack.
The systems we install have been used on Christchurch roofs for over half a century.
Our waterproof membranes are ideal for new roofs, roofing repairs and watertight decking.
The membranes we install laugh in the face of heat, sunlight and ozone. Plus, they look good.
Frequently Asked Questions
WHY IS WATERPROOFING NECESSARY?
That’s the purpose of a house, isn’t it – to keep you and your possessions dry? A membrane is just one way we can help your home achieve that.
DOES MY OLD MEMBRANE HAVE TO BE REMOVED?
That depends, since we do have products which can be applied over your old bitumen or uneven substrates. Let’s have a look and then decide the best option.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT A BLACK ROOF?
We even have waterproof membrane products which can be painted (with approved painting systems) so your roof and deck can either blend in or stand out.
WHAT DOES THE RUBBER MEMBRANE KEEP OUT?
Everything you need it to! Water and moisture vapour, sunshine, frost, chemicals, gases, even bacteria are no match for Epiclad and Butynol.
WILL IT COPE WITH NZ’S HARSH SUNLIGHT?
There’s no point laying a membrane on your roof or balconey that isn’t designed for our unique conditions. We help you choose the best one.
DOES A MEMBRANE NEED TO BE FLEXIBLE?
Christchurch property owners know better than anyone that buildings move. It’s important that your roofing membrane can cope with the shakes and seasons.
Your roofing team pulled a really long day on Monday and, to their credit, they were still really chipper at the end of it despite things not going to plan!
