Choose concrete tiles for your roof

A concrete tile roof might be seen as “old fashioned” these days, but it remains a very cost effective roof covering when compared to other roofing materials. Since humble beginnings in 1949, BMI Coverland is has evolved to become the largest concrete roof tile manufacturer in South Africa. Yes that is just shy of 70 years of concrete tile production in South Africa. That is 70 years of protecting what is important to you and helping you make a lifetime of memories. So why should you chose a concrete tile for your roof? Well for one they are strong, durable, have lasting colour, good sound proofing properties and well, they look nice. Plus they are actually very cost effective when you take the cost of the entire roof construction into account. Ps… ask your roof installer for a comparative quote… wink, wink. From our modern looking Elite and Perspective tiles to our pre-coated Flair range, we have a profile and colour to suite your style and pocket. Also enquire about our dry ridge system. Ridge and hip lines are mostly fixed with pigmented mortar. It is cheap, but it inevitably cracks and this causes leaks and damage to ceilings. The ventilating ridge system involves a sealing compound that is simply rolled and stuck

over a ridge baton and onto the tiles at the ridge line. The ridge tiles are then secured to this baton. The result is a clean-looking ridge line which is protected against leaks, wind and dust, providing a long-term benefit. No more unsightly waterproofed ridge and hip lines that are a different colour to your roof. Visit our website www.coverland.co.za or ask you roofing contractor for a Coverland roof tile quote. ABOUT BMI GROUP BMI Group, a Standard Industries company, is the largest manufacturer of flat and pitched roofing and waterproofing solutions throughout Europe. With 128 production facilities and operations in Europe, parts of Asia and South Africa, the company brings more than 165 years of experience. More than 9,500 employees give established brands like Braas, Monier, Icopal, Bramac, Cobert, Coverland, Klöber, Monarflex, Redland, Siplast, Vedag, Villas, Wierer and Wolfin a face to the customer.

safe around the pool Drowning remains one of the top causes of natural childhood death in South Africa. According to recent statistics released by private hospitals nearly 72% of near-drownings occur around the home and only 1.22% at the beach. Three-yearold children seem particularly vulnerable and constitute 45.45% of the total. Furthermore, for every child that dies from drowning, five are left with permanent brain damage from the lack of oxygen that occurs in a near-drowning. Drowning is commonly a silent event. The child makes no noise to alert their parent or carer. Babies can drown in just a few minutes while making a cup of coffee. In most developed countries, pool safety is a legislative issue and pool builders are obliged by law to advise on and fit adequate safety measures to any pool they install. If a pool has been secured for children, it is generally a decision that has been made by a responsible pool owner or contractor. How responsible are you as a pool owner?


ROOF COATING HAS YOU COVERED Roofs are perhaps the most important part of a house. But building just a roof is not enough, its proper finishing and maintenance is something which is of foremost importance. Permatex is a leading name in roof coating with over 30 years experience in the industry. Permatex specialises in roof coating. They are an owner-managed company established in 1986. The owner, Mr. Johan Steenekamp takes a hands-on approach to the daily operations of the company together with his competent team of professional applicators and installers. Permatex strives for the highest level of workmanship with only the best, SABS approved quality products. They ensure this by enlisting only factory-trained staff to tackle your roof coating and do not use sub-contractors or any casual labour off the street thus giving you total peace of mind that your home is safe, secure and in the best hands possible.

Our Pool nets and multi purpose covers are the ultimate pool safety devices on the market, are user friendly and carry a five year guarantee. All our nets and covers are custom made on site and shaped according to the pool. SA Pool nets and covers is a family owned business with years of experience in Pool Safety and maintenance. Our supervised installations are done with absolute safety in mind and done to your satisfaction.

The importance of roof coatings can definitely not be ignored. If applied properly and by a knowledgeable team, it helps to extend the life of the roof, ultimately saving the cost of re-roofing. Permatex has painted and coated more than 20,000 roofs and more than 11,000 homes/industrial buildings. Permatex provides a guarantee on all work and can arrange finance on terms that are convenient for you. BENEFITS • Guarantees peace of mind • Supervision • Factory trained staff

THE BENEFITS OF GUTTERS The importance of properly installed and maintained gutters can’t be stressed enough. Every house should have gutters, and in recent years building officials across the land have been recognizing this. Many municipalities around the country are now requiring gutters on all new residential constructions. HERE’S WHY RAIN GUTTERS ARE SO IMPORTANT... • Soil around the house is stabilized • Foundation problems can be avoided • Flooding under houses and in basements can be prevented • Erosion can be prevented and this preserves landscaping and turf • Water damage to siding can be prevented

• • •

Water staining on brick and stone masonry can be prevented. Settling and cracking of sidewalks, patios and driveways can be lessened. Exterior doors and garage overhead doors can be preserved.


Seamless and Custom-made Gutters Aluminium, Chromadek and Zinc-Alum Fascias Barge Boards

Best Gutters offer a 1 year guarantee on workmanship and up to 15 years on materials. Although all our teams are trained and experienced, they are still supervised and graded by our team leaders whilst on site, ensuring that work is finished off neatly and correctly.

The gutters should not hold standing water, should not leak, should be securely fastened to the fascias, and should have downspouts that are securely fastened to the exterior of the house.

Our materials remain corrosion-free, colourfast and maintenance free, so investing in our superior products means that you need never worry about your guttering again.

PROPERLY INSTALLED GUTTERS The majority of houses with gutters don’t have a system that is complete and installed correctly. A properly installed gutter system will include seamless gutters on every sloped roof edge.

BLOCKHOUSE SHUTTERS Strong, Safe & Beautiful Blockhouse Shutters are strong, safe and beautiful. Developed from over 18 years’ experience in designing and manufacturing quality shutters – Blockhouse Security Shutters will not only provide peace of mind but add real value to your property without breaking the bank. Due to the high quality of aluminium used, Blockhouse Shutters can be used internally, externally, as well as areas of high humidity or moisture such as bathrooms. They offer the ideal solution to light control, privacy and security needs. WHY BLOCKHOUSE SHUTTERS? A good quality, locally produced and beautiful aluminium shutter that has fantastic light and privacy control characteristics as well as being an excellent security barrier. ABOUT BLOCKHOUSE SHUTTERS Inspired by the view from the boardroom across the bay and onto Table Mountain with the ever present Kings Blockhouse standing guardian over the city, Blockhouse Shutters was envisaged to fulfill the goal to create a ‘defensive strong point against any enemy’ for every property owner. Using only the best materials available and with an eye for detail that is renowned in the industry – Blockhouse Shutters will add style, safety and peace of mind to any property. Due to these high levels of material spec – the shutters are all weather, all purpose and have a guarantee for peace of mind. No longer does security have to come at the expense of beauty – Blockhouse Shutters will provide the needed peace of mind whilst enhancing any room in your house.

WHY SHUTTERS? Every window or door has one or multiple requirements – control light, provide privacy or a security barrier. In the past home owners would look for curtains or blinds to assist with the privacy and light control and then use ugly burglar bars to provide the security. Having to install these was both costly and often resulted in a ruined view, poor quality products that broke easily and curtains and drapes that ended up getting dirty and didn’t handle wind at all. Shutters have been around for decades as window coverings, however they have mainly been for aesthetic and light reasons and had limitations of size and material. Enter today’s shutters that can be made to fit most openings, provide light and privacy control and are available as a beautiful security product. The home owner gets all their requirements from one beautiful product and the added benefit of insulation against both the cold and heat.

PRODUCT FEATURES • High level safety • Internal or external • 10 year guarantee • Short lead time • Eco/enviro friendly • Optional finishing architrave frames • Super silent and easy to operate • No need for drapes or curtains • Standard adjustable top track • Surface-mounted bottom track or recessed bottom track • Keyed alike locking option • Single-sided or double lock available • Available in five standard matt colours (white, bronze, charcoal, dark grey and light grey).

100% WALLING MFB Walling was established in 1996 by owner, Michael Frederick Barnard. The Company was registered as a (Pty) Ltd in 2016. We specialise in the manufacture and installation of Concrete Palisade Fencing, Columbo Precast Walling, Gates, Plain, Louvre and Jumbo Precast Walling, Ranch Rails and Pre-cast Braai’s. Exterior perimeter walls are one of the most important features of homes. In recent years they have become increasingly popular due to the prevailing harsh security climate. The days of open gardens are long past.

Surrounding walls demarcate the boundary of one’s property and add on aesthetic quality. Most people, when they think of enclosing their property, think first of security and then privacy.
