Green Roof Solutions.

WaterTight Construction have a variety of Green Roof Solutions, and are well equipped to offer a best fit specification and install methodology.

A warm roof is structured so as the insulation is situated directly at the building's roof envelope, positioning the "cold zone" to the outside of building eliminating condensation and creating a superior value of insulation, in both cooling and heating applications. Although a relatively new concept in New Zealand building practices, for over 30 years the Warm Roof has dominated design brief throughout the world.

A roofing profile with 4mm integrated solar panel. Solar Rib® is New Zealand’s only roofing profile that is specifically designed to generate electric power through the use of Photo-Voltaic Laminate (PVL) solar panel technology. An attractive profile offering elegant looks, Solar Rib® can be installed without the PVL, with the laminate being added onto the profile at a later time if desired. Solar Rib® represents a progressive product, paying for itself in the long run and is an ideal way to combat increasing energy prices by taking advantage of nature's most renewable source of energy - the sun.
