Questions on Roofing answered

Payments and Terms

  1. I have accepted your quotation. What are your payment terms and how do we proceed from here?
    • Well, you have chosen a SATAS quality approved plant and a fabricator who is licensed to an ISO 9001 certified organisation, so congratulations are in order.
       In order to comply with our own quality system, our license conditions and SATAS requirements we request that you sign all pages of your quotation, the roof layout and any other addendums and forward it, together with your deposit to ourselves without delay. We will schedule your project as soon as these conditions have been met.
      Our representatives will keep you updated on the progress where necessary and inform you of the actual delivery date, upon which we require the balance due.

Design, Fabrication and Delivery

  1. Can I support my geyser on the Roof Trusses or Tie Beam?
    • No, unless this was EXPRESSLY included in the design and indicated as such, this cannot be done. A full Geyser can easily weigh 300kg or more and this places the truss under extreme stress that was not designed for.
      It is far cheaper to support your geyser on internal walls.

By which the SABS is currently governed as the peak national standards body with no regulatory functions.
