Block-cutting looks complicated. What’s in it for me?

Well, because your materials arrive on site accurately cut and in the exact quantities and shapes needed, you can

  1. save money
    by reducing material waste by as much as 20%

  1. save time
    by reducing install time because each and every piece fits perfectly

  1. improve accuracy and quality of your jobs
    by getting it right the first time, every time

  1. reduce hazardous time spent on the roof
    because you have optimised the materials in the ‘dress rehearsal’, safely from your PC

  1. build trust with your clients for the professionalism of your roofing business
    because you quite visibly don’t waste time or leave scraps behind.

Does it work for every brand of metal?

Yes. As a current user of Roof Wizard you will know that we offer solutions for any material under the sun (pardon the pun).

Depending on where you live, you may know wide format metal panels under various trade names based on profile shape, such as

  • Classic Rib Panel
  • Pro-Panel
  • R-Panel
  • Span-Line Panel
  • 5V Panel
  • Tuff-Rib Panel
  • PBR-Panel, or
  • Corrugated Panel.
If your material of choice is not there, we will show you how to add it.
