About Us

Cowperthwaite Auckland Roofing Experts

Meet the Auckland Roofing Team and see why you can trust us to repair or replace your roof

Cowperthwaite Roofing has a proud history and was originally founded in 1906 by William Thomas Cowperthwaite. Even back then the company was forward thinking, and claims to have created the very first concrete block and tiles in New Zealand.

Today you will find some of these roofs still defying New Zealand’s unpredictable weather after 100 years plus. Not only that but in the 1950’s and 1960’s Cowperthwaites pioneered site roll formed Alstrip aluminium roofing and developed Alvista aluminium joinery.

Cowperthwaite Roofing is still regarded as an innovative company, but more than that we are proud of our reputation for outstanding craftsmanship and superior customer service.

STUART McKAY

ROOFER SITE MEASURES

Stuart is one of the most experienced roofers on our team. He is the first person our customers meet as he undertakes most of our roof measures and initial site visits.

While we are passionate about roofing and believe it to be the single most important aspect of a house, we realise that for many people replacing a roof can be described as a ‘distress purchase’. The thing to remember is, a roof protects your entire home from the elements.

As we’ve all seen with the leaky building crisis in New Zealand, allowing water to creep into your home, can cause untold damage and slash the value of your investment.

The roof over your head doesn’t have to be purely functional, there are new technologies and styles of roofing that can create a wonderful new look for your home, while offering the ultimate in protection from the weather.

Euroline roofing is a superb example of European styling and functionality that can transform your home. If you doubt that a roof could get the neighbours talking, take a look at our designer roof section. More

Then again if all you need is a simple roof repair, Cowperthwaite’s Auckland Roofing Experts will deliver an outstanding job, because our reputation depends on it.

Call us today and experience the difference that only comes from vast experience.
