ROOFS – LIGHTWEIGHT AND AESTHETICALLY CHARMING
For this apartment building in Büttikon (Switzerland), the architects were looking for an aesthetic and affordable alternative to the originally-planned chrome-steel roof covering. They wanted a “more serene” covering to act as a surface, so that the eye would be drawn to the building’s brick façade.
This was achieved by opting for light-grey coated PREFA roof tiles for the cover.
The roof tile used was a tried and tested rust-proof standard product which is available in various matt or gloss colours for use on new builds and renovations. As it is prefabricated, it can be installed very quickly. And when installed with expert precision, the cover remains storm-proof for years. PREFA provides builders with a 40-year material and colour guarantee on this product.
