I keep reading that Metrotile is a lightweight roofing system – how light is it compared to other roof products?
Metrotile is up to seven times lighter than so-called ‘traditional’ roofing materials, including clay and slate.
My building needs a new roof and i’m interested in Metrotile. However I have no experience fitting a roof, can you help?
Of course – Metrotile offers full customer support, from planning to installation and beyond. We also have printed installation guides. If you don’t feel confident about installing your own roof, we have a list of Approved Contractors who will be able to complete the installation on your behalf.
What standards does Metrotile meet?
Metrotile roof systems meet all British and European standards. Our tiles are also BBA certified and produced in a factory that meets the ISO14001 standard. More information can be found on our Certifications and Testing page.
What kind of accessories are available for a Metrotile roof?
Metrotile offers everything you require for a full roof installation and strives to be the one stop your roof requires. From rafters to underlay, to a full range of ridges, caps and ventilation to specialist accessories such as Velux windows and the Metrotile Photovoltaic System, Metrotile has it covered. We also sell fixings, nailguns and offer a hire service on some installation equipment such as guillotines and benders.
Does Metrotile offer roofing systems for areas where vandalism is prevalent?
Every Metrotile roof is extremely secure, against both vandalism and extreme weather. The dry-fix installation method makes it impossible for vandals to pull the tiles from the roof by hand. We also offer the Metrotile Secure Solution, which utilises double-thick .900mm profiles. For further details, visit this page.
