Recycled-waste roof tiles

Authentic Roof is a Brisbane-based company that distributes roofing manufactured by Canadian company Crowes Building Products.

Crowes manufactures roof slate from auto industry waste such as bumper bars, tyres, trim and interiors that might otherwise end up in landfill. The company reports the tiles are safe to use with rainwater tanks and no harmful chemicals or colour coating is used during the manufacturing process; the product also meets the Australian Standard for roofing and water collection. Available in black or grey and three shapes, the imitation slate is made using eight different moulds so it has the varied appearance of natural, quarried slate with the benefit of being stronger. The tiles are UV resistant, flame-retardant, do not fade and have a 50 year warranty. RRP $78 (plus GST) per square metre. Ridge capping is $25 (plus GST) per linear metre. Australia wide delivery. Delivery fees apply.
