Residential Bungalow Refurbishment

Case Study

Mr Mulraney is a Gloucester-based businessman whom owns a second home that he considers an investment. Like many people within his position, he rents the property and wishes to maintain and increase the its value in the most cost-effective manner possible.

When it came to replacing the roof, Mr Mulraney decided to search for a durable roofing material that he could install in conjunction with close friend, Mr Fenemore of Gloucester Town & Country Landscapes. The new material would also need to fit in with surrounding homes, which utilised an old metal sheet roofing product.

After asking around friends, he soon heard about Metrotile Lightweight Roofing: “I contacted the office and the service provided was excellent from the very start”. Mr Mulraney admitted that he was initially apprehensive, though: “I had sleepless nights about installing the roof, but when the time came I realisedI had nothing to worry. about.

Metrotile was so easy to install and cost significantly less than I thought it would.”


Mr Mulraney and his colleague were able to replace the roof within just five days, while working around their day jobs. The results are stunning and the home stands out against the aging rooftops that surround it, with approximately 105m2 of Metrotile Bond in red refreshing the facade of the home.

“I’m over the moon, as you can see it’s been a phenomenal transformation – i’ve already received enquiries from neighbours about the new roof.The tenants are also pleased, not only does their home look better, but they’ve noticed a reduction in their heating bills too”
