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 pitched roof (recommended minimum 30 degrees) .

Comparative to traditional tiles, they are also safer to walk over, have no algae growth and maintenance free. They have a higher thermal rating to metal and won’t scratch of dent. The process of installing asphalt shingles, begins with plywood sheeting to cover the roof, followed by ‘deck armour’ a one-way, breathable, membrane. The shingles are then fastened to the sheeting using flat-headed roofing nails.
