Another Five Projects Featuring A Metrotile Roof Installation

Last week we took a look at five classic Metrotile roof installation projects, and as the article proved to be very popular, here are another five Metrotile projects under the microscope reflecting the wide range of applications that Metrotile Lightweight Steel Roofing is suitable for:

Sutton Place, Bexhill-on-Sea

This recently completed project comprises of three blocks of flats in Bexhill-on-Sea that required flat to pitch roofing conversions. Metrotile was chosen by the Resident’s Association, alongside a steel frame system manufactured by Dibsa Structures. The resulting refreshed buildings look stunning along the coastline, as highlighted by our drone footage of the roof installation. 

Our roofing engineer recommended Metrotile as our roofing tile of choice, Dibsa and Metrotile have proved to be the ideal combination. The workforce from Dibsa structures who built and tiled our roofs were exemplary, they were led by their own project manager who was highly experienced, his team were hard working, conscientious, polite and helpful.

Featherstone and Hilton Community Centre

The many angles that feature in Featherstone Community Centre’s roof were due a refresh after the existing traditional slate covering reached the end of its natural life. Although the specifiers were keen to use a modern future-proof material, they also wanted the new roof installation to blend nicely with the luscious local countryside while also protecting the centre from vandalism. Metrotile’s Woodshake profile was chosen as the roof tile that checked all fo the boxes:

Robert Turner, Estimator at contractors Danescourt Roofing, states:

“In this case, Metrotile offered one very important quality that lightweight steel roofing systems have over more traditional materials: resilience to vandalism damage. We have worked with Metrotile previously and always have a great experience with their products and services.”

Defford Cum Besford Village Hall

This beautiful Metrotile installation on a new-build village hall was paid for by community fundraisers, and also features the Metrotile Photovoltaic System. The PV panels are used to store energy during peak hours, keeping the running of the building economical. 

Defford Cum Besford Village Hall Trust Chairman Michael Pegg stated:

“Choosing Metrotile gave us many project benefits, although initially we chose the product because of two reasons.First, the reduced fitting costs that occurred due to the reduced labour and handling requirement. The second reason was the choice of profiles and colours. To our surprise we discovered a bonus: integrated PV panels at a competitive price.”

Bryn Bach Park Visitor Centre

Another stunning location, Bryn Bach Park’s visitor centre urgently needed a new roof due to leakage. The rapidly installed Metrotile roofing not only fixed this, but improved security and aesthetics and was backed by Metrotile’s forty year guarantee. 

Tony Clarke of contractors MA Hartley roofing said:“Staff at the centre have been brilliant in giving us access and with a product like Metrotile which is so quick to install we have been able to provide a good-looking roof for the users. It’s a low-level roof so the visitors will really be able to appreciate the work which has been done.”

Ingliston Equestrian Centre

Ingliston Equestrian Centre required a secure yet lightweight roof material for various timber structures including stables and accommodation. The picturesque results speak for themselves, looking fantastic alongside the surrounding Scottish countryside. 

Metrotile supplied over three thousand square metres of roofing materials to two new stable blocks and numerous new Chalet buildings at the site. Metrotile Slate in Bronze was specified as it combines a stunning traditional look with a swift installation and a low weight that reduces stress upon the supporting timber frame structures of both the chalets and the stables.
