Small Sumatra Roofing - 21.5 ft²
The exotic Sumatra roof is easy to install on a closed roof for your DIY projects. Its leaves in shades of brown, green and yellow will offer an original look whether to add a decorative tropical touch to your backyard or at the campsite, on the roof of your pergola or on the roof of a bar. Made of HDPE, the roof is resistant and requires no maintenance. Sold in a pack of 36 leaves, covering a 2 square meters (21.53 square feet) area.
This smaller version is perfect for a smaller project or even to pair with the larger format and thus avoid losses.
1. Start the installation
Place the first row of leaves starting in the lower left corner, 20 cm from the bottom edge of the roof. Fasten the leaves side-by-side, without overlap, using 3 nails spaced at equal distances.
2. Continue the rows
For each even row, cut one leaf in half (top to bottom) with a utility knife and use this leaf to start the row. Place the leaves 20 cm above the previous row.
3. Finalize the installation
For a linear roof, fold the leaves of the last row at least 12 cm to the other side of the roof and nail them there. Do this for each side of the roof.
For a pointed roof, cut leaves in half and attach the leaf halves to the edge every 20 cm from the bottom to the top of the roof.
For a standard size 10' x 10' gazebo, 8 sets will be needed to cover the area.
To cover the roof of an 8' x 12' shed, 8 sets will be required.
To cover the roof of an 8-foot diameter umbrella, you will need 3 sets.
Tiki bar - Linear roof
For a linear roof of a 6' x 4' tiki bar structure, 2 sets will be required.
For a shelter for a 10' x 5' outdoor BBQ area or kitchenette, it will take 4 sets to cover the roof.
The roof is not certified waterproof. However, to enjoy a watertight roof, we recommend that you first install a self-adhesive waterproofing membrane. Visit a hardware store for advice.
The roof is resistant to heat, snow and wind.
We do not guarantee the waterproofing of the roof, as it results from the installation made. However, the addition of a waterproofing membrane will ensure that the roof is waterproof.
The color will be slowly altered over time by the sun's rays. This fading will not affect the quality of the product.
