Case Study

7 blocks of Cornish Units in Hereford were successfully refurbished in Metrotile Shingle by Central Roofing & Building LTD

When seven block of Cornish Units in Hereford were in need of re-roofing; roofing contractors Central Roofing were called upon to undertake the work of removing the existing styles, re-inforcing the existing roof rafters and installing the roof tiles. 

Metrotile’s Lightweight Steel roofing tiles were selected for the job due to the aesthetics that brought the blocks of flats to life, along with the lightweight aspect that meant the tiles could easily be installed without putting strain on the roof structure.    All of Metrotile’s Lightweight Steel roof tiles come with a 40 year weatherproof guarantee!

The works at the site were part of an overall investment package of energy efficiency measures for the properties, being led by the social housing provider. As well as roofing, insulation was being upgraded, and windows and doors replaced. The aim of the refurbishment to reduce fuel costs, improve the carbon footprint and make the homes warmer; which was why Metrotile were the perfect choice. Their lightweight tiles are up to 8x lighter than traditional materials, ensuring a much lower carbon footprint in the number of vehicles needed for transportation.
