Decra Roofs are unbreakable, eliminating leaks due to broken tiles.
Decra Roofing Systems use unique horizontal fastening solution which prevent wind uplift force of up to 120mph (circa. 193 km/h). Hence, eliminate possible leakages due to wind uplift issue.
Decra Roofing Systems' unique treatment to roof joints that either bend the tiles upward at ridges, hips, barges & other joints; or bend the tiles downward at valley, create a second barrier for the roofing systems to prevent possible rainwater seepages through roof joints.
Most importantly, it DOES NOT REQUIRE any leak proof roof components such as the waterproofing dry fix for ridge & hip, as well as the expensive tile clips that are commonly used in the traditional concrete and/or clay roofing systems to secure cut tiles and prevent wind up-lift force.
