2. Working out the finer details (style, material and colour)
OK, now let’s get stuck into the nitty-gritty. When choosing the style, material and colour for roof panels and decking – we’ve got you covered.
There’s no longer any need for three separate products to create a weather-proof roof, quality insulation and attractive ceiling. Our roof panels are constructed to incorporate insulation between two sleek outer panels.
The core of our panels contains a thermal insulator to keep your living space cool and pleasant. You’ll be able to save on your energy bills, with panel insulation reducing the need for fans and air conditioners. The panels are lightweight yet sturdy, with steel outer layers. They’re strong enough to span distances of four metres or more, so your sheltered space won’t be hampered by obtrusive supports.
The Easy Panel design represents strength, visual aesthetics and ease of use. You can be confident in a product that’s built to withstand Australia’s harsh environment.Save time and money with our cost-effective and straightforward to install insulated roof panels.
We provide a durable decking product made with eco-friendly, recycled timber powders and high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Composite decking looks and feels just like timber except it’s ultra-durable, low maintenance and 100% weather-proof.
With UV stabilisation and mould resistance, our composite decking is designed to withstand Queensland’s harshest weather conditions.We’re so sure of our product; we even offer a 15-year warranty for peace of mind.

5. Maintenance (hint; there is none)
Nobody wants to spend every other week maintaining their outdoor area.
It’s expensive, time-consuming and takes all the joy out of the whole experience. Luckily, our panels and composite decking material are weatherproof and maintenance free.Composite Decking is a durable decking product made with UV stabilisation and mould resistance– so it doesn’t bleach or fade. To wash, use soapy water. No oiling or coating required.
Easy Panel roofing solutions aren’t just simple to install; they’re also simple to maintain. There’s no need to paint the panels because the colour is added during manufacture. An occasional rinse with the backyard hose is all that’s needed to keep the panels looking fresh, year after year.
A 15-year warranty backs both products for total peace of mind.
