Rio leaves were designed to be laid directly over an existing roof structure, such as wooden panels, shingles, metal sheeting, or any other finished paneling.

Versatile and easy-to-lay, these products are the ideal aesthetically-pleasing solution for any roofing renovation projects.

This leaf type offer  distinct technical advantages: full and effective exterior coverage in any weather, the Rio is designed with a finer tip, which more closely resembles the Coconut Palm.
