Am writing a document for new home builders trying to bond together the specifications for structured cabling in a UFB-Ready house, while also being taylor broadband-ready because VDSL/Fibre wont be in the area for 20 years.

What different types of roof are there.
So far I have

 - Corrougated Iron
 - Fake Tiles made of corrugated iron (not sure what these are called)
 - Ceramic Tiles

Have you tried googling for "Branz" and roofing materials? That should give you a pretty complete list of certified materials used in NZ.

KiwiNZ: Gerard Shingles


Thanks - thats exactly sorta what I was looking for. the Gerard website calls the category "Pressed Steel" tiles and shingles.

I think thats about it. I cant think of any other types other than Tar sheets which I have seen on only one new house.

Butynol rubber membrane roofing. A thin rubber layer over a plywood substrate.

Pressed metal tile is known in the trade as "tin tiles". That name encompasses all the brands including Gerard and Monier.

rscole86: Have you tried googling for "Branz" and roofing materials? That should give you a pretty complete list of certified materials used in NZ. 

 

That will only list the ones where a company had paid Branz to certify and test their roof. But there are many others available that won't be. I don't believe that there is no requirement to use something that is branz approved.

I think many of the NZ ones are bitumen. But you can also get cedar shingles, although they do cup over time.

This list should cover at least 99.9% (if not all) of conventional roofing used in New Zealand:

 

  • Profiled metal roofing (corrugated, trapezoidal, trough)
  • Pressed metal roofing tiles
  • Masonry roofing tiles (concrete, teracotta)
  • Shingles (asphalt)
  • Shakes and Shingles (timber)
  • Slate (natural/artificial)
  • Membrane roof (concrete or plywood substrate)
  • Bitumen-impregnated organic fibre roofing (corrugate profile)
