Bitumen Shingles

Bitumen roofing products are manufactured in a continuous process starting with large rolls of organic felt on to which other components are layered. The felt is passed through a saturator tank where it is impregnated with the hot bitumen. This is then coated with a stabilizer to the top and bottom of the saturated felt sheet. Coloured granules are then dropped onto the top surface, while a talc is spread across the back to prevent the shingles from sticking together when packaged. Cooling rollers then press the granules firmly into the hot bitumen while bringing the temperature of the material down. The material is then accurately cut to size, packaged and wrapped for shipment.

Cedar Shingles

Cembrit Ltd import highly durable Cedar shingles from Canada, where they have been used as an exterior building material for centuries. After being cut from the block of Cedar each shingle is trimmed to create square corners and graded according to visual features. Timber off-cuts are converted into mulch which is used by gardeners and landscape architects. Its naturally occuring preservatives make Eastern White Cedar resistant to fungal, insect and moisture decay which can be enhanced by extra chemical treatment.
