ROOFING SOLUTIONS

WHAT IS A BUILDERS TRUSS PLANT?

In short, it’s an all-in-one roofing solution for any project, big or small. 

HOW IT WORKS

If it’s roofing that you need come to Builders and Get It Done. We offer a free quotation service and will manage the process from initially receiving information for quotation to finalising your design requirements and delivering all roofing materials to site. To arrange a quotation simply call your nearest Builders branch or use our contact centre number.

DOESN’T AN ARCHITECT DESIGN THE ROOF? WHERE DO YOU COME IN?

The architect will design the look of the roof, but a roof designer is responsible for its structural integrity: things like pitch, overhang and covering. Working in tandem with the architect or draughtsman, Builders has a team of roof designers who make sure the structure is sound and adheres to all national building regulations. Using marketleading software from MiTek Industries SA, complex designs are possible in nail-plated timber or lightweight steel. Once the plans have been signed off, the roof goes into production at one of our truss plants across the country.

 

WHY THE DECISION TO FOCUS ON ROOFING?

Builders has been involved in roofing manufacturing since it acquired Federated Timbers in 2005. The current industry is not very organised and there are lots of fly-by-night manufactures and installers. We saw an opportunity to do it properly. A roof is the biggest individual sale when building a house. Not the biggest spend, but the biggest single invoice. We don’t just offer trusses, we offer the complete package to spare you having to deal with multiple suppliers. Our service includes engineering support, site measurement and on-site assistance, all fixings and brackets, underlays, boarding, waterproofing materials, fascia- and bargeboards and a range of coverings. We also strive for a fast turnaround because we know that some contractors don’t plan ahead and they’re always looking for the roof yesterday.

 

HOW WILL THIS SERVICE SAVE ME TIME AND MONEY?

Because we supply the full basket from bricks to roof, we have buying power in the industry. Coupled with our in-house design service, this allows us to deliver a competitive, if not cheaper, quote than other providers. There’s quality control across the board, from materials to the finished product, which means that your roof won’t end up costing you more to amend or repair down the line. We even offer interest-free accounts to qualifying customers.
