Surprisingly Affordable

Surprisingly Affordable

The overall cost of a Decra pressed steel roof is similar to the cost of a long-run iron roof and usually less expensive than a concrete tile roof. Decra roofs are likely to be less expensive than any other type of roof because it won’t require special materials or fastenings to cope with extreme conditions.

50 Years Warranty

50 Years Warranty

The extraordinary durability of a Decra roof is backed up by a comprehensive three-point warranty covering weather resistance, surface coating and installation. We believe our warranty is unsurpassed in Africa.

Collecting Rainwater

Collecting Rainwater

Decra roof tiles undergo strict testing, part of which is for the quality of run-off water from our roofs. In tests, Decra roof tiles are proven not to add anything to the water that falls onto the roof, and in fact exceed the standards set by the World Health Organisation for drinking water. In short, the water that falls onto the roof is exactly the same as is collected by your rainwater guttering system. However, before use, we recommend that the water should be filtered as leaves and twigs etc. can make their way into your tanks. If used for domestic use, the water should probably be boiled first.

Noise Reduction

Noise Reduction

The natural stone coating on Genuine Decra roof tiles, combined with our advanced basecoat technology means a Genuine Decra Roof will produce less sound during heavy rainstorms.

Tile Security

Tile Security

Every Genuine Decra roof tile is fixed though the two tiles above, two tiles below and the tiles on either side, securely into the battens below. This incredibly strong fastening means tiles cannot be lifted by intruders.

Lightweight

Lightweight

At only 7.0Kg/m², a Genuine Decra Roof is much lighter than clay or concrete tiles, and even some other metal roofs. This means it requires less support from the walls of the building and less timber to support the roof. These factors reduce the cost of materials; increase the speed of construction thereby lowering the cost of labour.

Coastal Living

Coastal Living

Genuine Decra tiles were invented by us on the north island of New Zealand. Being a small island, roofs there are constantly under attack from salt in the air that comes from sea spray. Genuine Decra roof tiles have been developed therefore to withstand salt corrosion, making them the perfect choice for building located near the coast. Our free 50 year Warranty covers buildings in marine environments while other roof tile manufacturers do not.

Fast Installation

Fast Installation

Decra tiles are fast to install, reducing the cost of labour and creating a water sealed building quicker so that internal fit out can proceed.
