New Zealand's Favourite Colour Range

Our colour range has always been inspired by our home – the beautiful, diverse and ever-changing landscape of New Zealand. From the whites and greys of our moody skies to the deep blues of the waters that surround us; from the dusty hues of the earth we walk upon to the vibrant greens of the flora we wander through, our palette has been drawn from this stunning natural environment.

Our range is a representation of the colours New Zealanders love most on their roofs. It features a blend of classic, timeless shades and modern, on-trend tones.
