New Build or Refurb, Choose Metrotile Lightweight Steel Roofing

New build development

Metrotile Lightweight Steel Roofing is the durable, extra-secure lightweight roofing solution that has found favour with specifiers involved with both refurbishment and new-build projects.

At just one seventh of the weight of equivalent slate or clay tiles, Metrotile won’t place too much burden on the building’s supporting structure and is supported by a range of bespoke accessories including Velux rooflights and the Metrotile Photovoltaic System. In addition, Metrotile roofs are backed by an industry-leading Forty Year guarantee and offer unsurpassed security.

Metrotile’s profiles have become a popular choice for non-traditional homes such as Hawksley Bungalows and BISF’s, with Shingle becoming especially popular for  Cornish Units as it can be applied as vertical cladding: perfect for the Cornish Unit’s mansard roofs.

Paul Hester, Building Surveyor at Tarka Housing Association, was overseeing Cornish Unit refurbishments involving the Shingle profile:

“The aesthetic appearance of the tiles and the ease of application on this project, together with Metrotile’s experience with projects of this type and their availability to visit site to give advice and help were important factors when choosing Metrotile’s products.”
