A versatile profile with the appearance of a small riven slate-based on the classic North American timber shingle design, Metrotile Shingle is a simple and elegant solution for any roof project. Offering the rooftop quality and style for which Metrotile is renowned, Metrotile Shingle has been designed with a unique "hidden fix: system that also enables the product to double as an excellent vertical cladding solution. This is because the hidden-fix design leaves no nail exposed, preventing rainwater from corroding the nails, a common weakness of traditional vertical cladding.Metrotile Shingle is available in five colours, and can be fixed from vertical, down to a minimum pitch of 15°. It is the ideal profile for those looking for a simple and elegant roofing or cladding solution.
