Energy Crisis: Reduce The Impact with Metrotile Lightweight Roofing

Conservatory refurbished with a Metrotile Lightweight Roof System Shingle Antique Red

The winter is rapidly approaching, as is another hike in UK energy prices. Now more than ever, people are looking to insulate their homes to tackle rising gas and electricity bills and reduce the impact of the impending energy crisis. 

For years now, people have been refurbishing their conservatories with a Metrotile roof, enabling full insulation to be installed to turn it into an all-year space: warmer in winter, cooler in the summer. Metrotile has become such a proven roofing solution for conservatories that fabricators now install Metrotile roofs as an option on brand new conservatories. 

Central to Metrotile’s success as a conservatory roof material is a truly modern material: steel. Each Metrotile profile is pressed from the highest quality steel in the industry, ensuring a roof tile that is light – just one seventh of slate or clay equivalents – yet is incredibly secure at just .450mm thick. Metrotile roofing is vigorously tested against the elements, including extreme conditions around the world – and also vandal proof (with the increased security option of .900mm roofing available for areas where vandalism is an ongoing concern). 

Steel is also fully recyclable (with each Metrotile profile including recycled material already) and the low weight significantly reduces transportation to the site, meaning less lorries on the road and less pollutants in the atmosphere. Pressed in our ISO14001 certified facility, a Metrotile roof tile is sustainable and working to reduce the impact of the energy crisis before it’s even installed.
