Modular Home Roofing Specifiers: Choose Metrotile

Modular home builders, specifiers and architects –  here are just a few of your reasons to choose Metrotile Lightweight Roofing for your roofing requirements

Low weight

The ideal roofing component of a modular home is low weight, enabling easy transportation to site and reduced pressure on the supporting structure post-installation. This is Metrotile Lightweight Roofing’s primary USP – offering incredible benefits in a package that weighs just one seventh of comparable ‘traditional’ products such as slate or clay. 

Unsurpassed security

Surely a material that’s under half a millimetre thick can’t match the security of a traditional tile? Wrong! Each Metrotile is pressed from the highest quality drawing grade three steel – the highest quality available to our industry. The steel is galvanised with a zinc/aluminium compound and the weather side is coated with an acrylic glaze and stone mixture, that protects against the most extreme weather conditions (and is tested against them worldwide to prove it). 

As a Metrotile roof is fixed into place, it becomes practically impossible for a vandal to remove it.

Certifications, memberships and testing

All of Metrotile’s roofing systems have British Board of Agrément certification (all recently updated to reflect our ever-expanding range and available for download on our website). At Metrotile, we believe in offering as many certifications and tests against our products as possible, to make choosing us even easier. We are also members of relevant industry bodies such as the Modular and Portable Building Association (MPBA). 


Intergrated or retrofit – if you need a solar system connected to your Metrotile roof, we can help you. We recently started and exciting relationship with PV manufacturers BIPVco so we can supply our customers their industry leading systems built into our tiles, enhancing our position as the modular home roofing material of choice by many specifiers, fabricators and architects across the UK. 

Unmatched technical support

When you work with Metrotile, you know you’re in safe hands. Whether you just wish to have a free estimate for your project, need installation advice from our Technical Manager or support from our Modular Building Specialist and Sales Director David Padmore, Metrotile has you covered. 

Oh, and our roofing systems are guaranteed for 40 years, offering even more peace of mind.
