Sheet Roofing vs Concrete Roof Tiles – Product debate

, |

2 min read

Estate Living as we discuss a hot topic in the property construction and roofing sector: Sheet Roofing vs Concrete Roof Tiles The aesthetics of Sheet Roofing has grown in popularity with investors over the years, however the products of BMI Coverland, one of South Africas leadings roof tile manufactures, have evolved and offer a range of Concrete Roof Tiles that create sophisticated finishes for roofs.

Is the increase in metal prices and current sheet roofing shortage giving the traditional concrete roof tile industry a competitive edge?

Estate Living has asked the experts. Nico Hanekom of BMI Coverland, Vincent Den of Elegant Roofing and Keith Harmsworth MSP Developers join our panel to share their expertise and bring new insight into this debate.
