Winners of the RANZ Residential Roof of the Year 2022, Warkworth-based Webbs Brick & Roof Tiles are passionate about using only high-quality, locally sourced products. After moving away from bituminous paper, Webbs’ choice of underlay was VHP Roof Underlay from Masons.
‘We made the decision some time ago to change to a synthetic paper for longevity and watertightness,’ says owner Bill Webb on why they chose Masons VHP. ‘Most importantly, we want to work with a local supplier who provides a variety of products at a good price.’
VHP Roof Underlay comes in four weights: VHP Value (125gsm), VHP Strong (140gsm), VHP Ultra (180gsm) and VHP Maxi (220gsm), all providing great performance and excellent value for money. VHP is self-supporting and fire-retardant (except for VHP Value) and is CodeMark certified to meet NZBC requirements.
For Webbs, the VHP roll sizes and weights are another benefit. ‘It means we can cover more area with a roll, and the lightness of the synthetic paper makes it so much easier to handle and transport, especially when working up on the roof,’ says Bill.
Manufactured from multi-laminate non-woven polypropylene membranes, VHP Roof Underlay deflects water and air both during construction and as part of the finished roof. Highly breathable, it transfers water vapour at higher rates than bitumen-impregnated paper, and offers 21 days of UV resistance.
Webbs Brick & Roof Tiles are dedicated to providing the highest quality workmanship, and their award-winning work relies on products that they know will perform.
‘We would definitely recommend the Masons products,’ says Bill. ‘We have found the VHP Roof Underlay to be highly versatile and it can be used in most applications. The price is good, and the size of the rolls works for our projects.’
