A traditional roofing material in Indonesia, where it's commonly known as Kayu Besi, the shingles offer a life expectancy of over 20 years. This
type of roofing first originated in Kalimantan, Borneo, where it's been used for hundreds of years for housing, due to its strength, aesthetic
appeal and weather resistant qualities.
Ironwood shingle roofing is ideal for all types of structures including:
Building with Ironwood shingles
Before building an Ironwood shingle roof on either a custom built or prefabricated structure, battens must initially be installed and the shingles attached one by one. This process can be completed quickly and efficiently by a professional roofer, or by a DIY enthusiast following our instruction guide, making it a cost-effective, long lasting option.Ironwood shingles are best installed on a roof with a sloped design, so that water slides off simply and easily.
Waterproof, Low Maintenance and Termite Resistant
When installed correctly Ironwood shingles are 100% waterproof. Another feature which makes Ironwood shingles a preferred alternative for outdoor shade structures, is this roofing material requires very little maintenance, apart from the occasional clean to remove any dirt build up. It's also resistant to most insect attacks, even termites, along with being mildew resistant.
