Founded in 1990, Bundupale started its journey, lead by Mr. A.B.R. Janson to become the leading civil engineers in the field. Situated in Schagen, near Nelspruit, we started working nationwide tending to the needs of each individual customer. Mr. Pieter Broodryk joined this venture in 2006, allowing growth in all departments including the customer base and customer satisfaction.

In 2009, Bundupale became more established and so, we started trading under the name Bundudakke, specialising in well-priced cladding thatch roofs with Harvey Tiles. This name was registered January 2015 and the company is now officially trading under the name Bundudakke (Pty) Ltd. Our offices have opened in Lanseria, Lydenburg, Mpumalanga, Pretoria and Johannesburg. We are also in the process of opening an office in Hluhluwe, Natal.

As you can choose which Harvey Tiles colour you’d like your roofing to be, you can match the tiles to the colour of the surrounding nature as well as to the colour of your home. This is just another great future which makes these roofing tiles so versatile!

Benefits of Harvey Tiles:

Harvey Tiles are designed and manufactured for strength and offer homeowners many added benefits compared to traditional roofing.
More and more people are starting to choose Harvey Tiles over other conventional roofing methods and the proof is in the pudding. One simply cannot resist choosing Harvey Tiles after hearing you won’t be spending countless Saturdays busy with roof maintenance. Some of the major benefits include:

Leak & Burglar Proof Roof
If you know How to Install Harvey Tiles correctly, the unique over-lapping installation technique provides not only a leak-proof roof but also a form of burglar proofing. The tiles are available in Alu-Zinc coated mild steel or a galvanized mild steel substrate for long-term corrosion resistance.

Weather Resistant
The acrylic coating on the Harvey Tiles was developed to withstand high levels of UV and the most adverse weather conditions. The small stone granules bonded to the tile surface result in an extremely durable finish which protects against gale-force winds, hailstorms and downpours.

Low Maintenance cost
The maintenance cost on Harvey Tiles is exceptionally low as they do not require a yearly inspection for vermin, moss, leaks or holes. Your biggest maintenance cost as a Harvey Tile owner will probably be giving it a good wash every now and then. The extremely low maintenance required on these products are the selling point for many.

By changing that old weathered thatch roof to Harvey Tiles, you will turn your old house into a home worthy of being on the cover of a magazine! When installing Harvey Tiles, we suggest having a look at different Harvey Tiles Pictures and choosing the colour you would like your roofing to be. We found that matching it with the surrounding natures gives your home a warm, natural feeling. The Harvey Tiles sizes make it easy for them to be installed around doors and windows, accommodating the architectural beauty of your home. By using a Harvey Tiles Calculator you can get an idea of how many tiles you will need.

Thatch on the inside, Tile on the Outside
Many people prefer having thatch roofs because of the warmth and ambiance it creates. Others prefer the natural look of the thatch on the inside. Now imagine having the natural grass look, warmth and ambiance whilst being maintenance-free. Harvey Tiles cover the outside of your thatch roof and will leave you with only the enjoyable parts of a thatch roof.

It’s an investment
Installing Harvey Tiles for your home is an investment. Not only will you be saving money by not needing to erect, install or maintain lightning poles. To get the most out of your investment, don’t pay the Harvey tiles prices at Buco, Build It, or Builders Warehouse, order your tiles from Bundu Dakke today.

Quality Assured
The manufacturer of Harvey Tiles – Harvey Roofing Products, enforce very high-quality standards. Being a division of Africa’s leading steel supplier – Macsteel, Harvey Roofing Products get to use the best steel on the market.

No Birds, No troubles
Birds are the worst enemy of a thatched roof. The roof is extremely vulnerable to being stripped by birds, especially weavers which can basically destroy a roof within one year. When installing Harvey Tiles, birds are unable to get to and destroy your thatch roof.

Reduced Fire Risk
It’s common sense that thatch is flammable and the most common cause is stray amber from a nearby chimney. Losing your entire roof, if not your whole house would clearly be detrimental. You can reduce if not entirely eliminate fire as a risk after installing Harvey Tiles.

Easy To Find
Harvey Tiles is a very well-known roofing product, therefore you can find it at many different hardware stores all across the country. You can find Harvey tiles for sale in Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Gauteng, Cape Town and more. Although you will be able to source these tiles in the surrounding countries, the prices may vary, such as the Harvey tiles prices in Zimbabwe and Botswana.
