Smartroof vs Traditional Build


Safety Comparison

The Safer option

Site safety must rank as the major priority for every builder.

Smartroof eliminates the significant danger caused by falling block gables.

It also cuts risks dramatically by reducing labour to a single gang of carpenters, spending only a few hours working at heights.

Traditional builds require employed and sub-contracted labour across a range of trades.

Cost Comparison

100% Guaranteed on-budget!
