Nobody expected the post-war prefabricated homes to last the duration, but somehow they defied their life-expectancy and still exist in abundance. 

Many of these homes, such as BISFs, Cornish Units and Hawksley Bungalows have passed into the ownership of Housing Associations and Local Authorities, meaning that they have been subjected to frequent maintenance in an effort to maintain Government housing standards.

Metrotile Lightweight Roofing has found significant success as a roofing material for such refurbishments and can be found on Non-traditional housing across the UK. Swiftly installed and offering stunning aesthetics and incredible security benefits, Metrotile Lightweight Roofing also improves the U Value of each home, reducing utility bills and keeping residents happy in the process.

Another benefit to using Metrotile is the low weight of each profile. Weighing up to just one seventh of the equivalent slate or clay product, a Metrotile roof puts much less strain on the supporting structure and foundations – a must for homes such as BISFs, that were erected as temporary housing with the framework to match. The low weight also means that more tiles can be delivered with just a fraction of the freight requirements – one ton of steel roofing goes so much further than so-called traditional roofing products.

Metrotile has made significant strides ensuring the very best service for our customers, including a brand new website at that has been designed to be as accessible for newcomers to the brand as informative for Metrotile veterans. In addition, you can also view our fantastic new video installation guides or contact us for a free no-obligation quotation.
