Case Study

Metrotile Lightweight Steel Roofing continues to be a valuable problem-solver material for Local Authority refurbishment projects, as reflected by the recent works undertaken by contractor Feltfab Facilties Ltd on behalf of Cardiff County Council for a street of unique homes with a roof tile that had reached the end of its natural life.

Located at Aberdulais Crescent in Cardiff, each of the twelve properties is a traditionally-built bungalow built fifty five years ago. From the outset, the roofing material utilised on each home was manufactured from metal, although they used standard metal sheeting instead of the advanced metal roof tile Metrotile produces. Metrotile is the third roof material on these properties since they were built, however between the Forty Year Guarantee and the life expectancy of the material, it’s entirely plausible Metrotile will still be present on each home in another fifty five years.

Each pair of semi-detached homes was re-roofed over a three week period, as Feltfab also had to make significant alterations to the roof timber and insulation aspects along with replacing the roof material. Richard Llewellyn, Business Development Manager at Feltfab Facilities states:

“We have had good experience using Metrotile Roofing Systems and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their products for any job. It’s an excellent product  – the leader in its field – with great manufacturer support.”

The end results are fantastic, and a viewing of the crescent reveals homes that look brand new thanks to the refurbishment. We look forward to further projects down the road with both Feltfab and Cardiff Council.
