Residential Roof of the Year 2023

Aspect Roofing – Opito Bay, Coromandel

"We faced significant hurdles with this project, initially with our coil being held up in transit to NZ for several months, then again when installing the spouting. To push forward, we ended up folding the gutters from mill-finished aluminium and then custom-painting them and all rainwater components. A two-man team completed the roof, with our project manager stepping in to do the copper mouldings around the chimneys. Joe installed all welded, powder-coated flashings to skylights – with one diverter taking the three large skylights on both main faces – along with channel drains to chimneys and custom penetration seals. The pitch was a challenge. We had to use clamps to install the ridging. High winds made things tricky at some points, too. Being in a very remote location, four hours from our base, delivery had to be spot on. We had to ensure we had covered every detail before our truck left our depot." – Aspect Roofing

Judges’ Comments:
“This roof comes second only to the backdrop in terms of visual appeal, yet, in many ways, compliments it with contrasting straight lines and symmetry. This has been achieved through attention to detail and a well-considered set-out. It’s worth noting that this is all soft metals, not steel, and so presented challenges around the pitch and the elements.
