Savings on battens
The width of 400mm offers a 15% savings on timber battens and labour against some manufacturers’ steel roof tiles. Walking on the roof is easier on our tiles.
No biocide treatment
Some manufacturers use spray applied acrylic water-based emulsion paints with a biocide treatment to inhibit algae, lichen and moss growth. Potentially this pulls environmental issues when the biocide over-glaze is washed away into rainwater harvesting systems meant for human consumption. Our tiles have NO biocide treatment.
No condensation issues
‘Long panel’ roofing alternatives have inherent condensation, installation and transportation problems. Coversys roof tiles, due to their interlocking nature, have natural ventilation points.
Savings on transport
We can transport a maximum of 5000m² in a 20″ container or on a truck whereas our competitors are able to transport a maximum of 3300m². This offers savings on transport costs.
Behaviour towards biological attacks
Some manufacturers offer stone coated tiles (tiles with granules) which attract dust, bird manure and dead leaves and become a breeding ground for bacteria, lichens, mildew, moss etc. and therefore difficult to clean.
Our smooth tiles surface is cleaned by runoff rain and the cover coating remains easy to maintain without mechanical or aggressive means.
Excellent warranty conditions
Some manufacturers offer only 50% replacement cost after expiry of half of their guarantee period whereas the Coversys warranty is 100% for the entire warranty period duration.
