As expert roofers we highly recommend these products for their strength and resilience in a Hurricane prone tropical environment.

Sandura Wallaba Wood Shingles

Tropical Hardwood Shingles (Wallaba)

Wallaba is a dense, tropical hardwood that has been used for over a century to make many products including roofing shingles, transmission poles, fence posts, external cladding, etc. The hardwood shingle is the perfect roofing solution for island and sea environments as it won’t rust and is the best system in hurricane conditions as each individual shingle is nailed twice and each layer of shingle interlocks forming an almost invincible roof covering with good installation.

Sandura Wallaba Shingles are manufactured from Wallaba wood at our supplier’s factory in South America. Cedar and other wood shingles need to be treated with chemicals to extend their life.  Sandura Wallaba Shingles need no such treatment, allowing it to be a natural environmentally friendly product, with strength properties superior to any other wood shingles.

Reasons to consider Sandura Wallaba Shingles:

– Highly resistant to insects and decay

– No treatment required (a very “green” alternative)

– Highest fire-rated wood shingles

– Life span of 50 years!

– A tropical Caribbean & Caricom product.

Our supplier/manufacturer is environmentally aware and has strategic policies to ensure environmental sustainability. Only 2 trees are felled per 2 acres!

We have specialized in the installation of Wallaba shingles over the past 7 years, when many in the industry had reservations. Today we have successfully built a reputation for quality installations and several now look to profit from this market that been cultivated over recent years. Trust only the seasoned professionals with your wallaba wood roof. Stay away from the newcomers or (as jamaicans would say – “no hurry-come-up” !)
