The roof is a symbol of security and shelter for both domestic and commercial roofing. Whether it’s protecting your home and family, keeping the indoor courts of a leisure centre dry or keeping you sheltered while waiting for the bus, the roof is the most significant part of any building.
Lightweight steel roofing has evolved to become a product that offers benefits that exceed those of traditional roof tile materials and is held in high esteem by our all-sector spanning customer base.
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.
Are there any conditions for the Forty Year Guarantee?
Yes – the roof either needs to be installed by an approved Metrotile contractor OR a Metrotile representative can visit to approve the guarantee for DIY installations. Metrotile Customer Care works hard every step of the way to ensure your installation goes smoothly and the end result is suitable for approval.
Is a Metrotile roof difficult to maintain?
Absolutely not. Once installed, a Metrotile roof requires nearly zero maintenance and is guaranteed weatherproof for forty years.
Explain how Metrotile requires reduced transport costs compared to other roof products?
Compared to traditional roofing materials, Metrotile is one seventh of the weight and only .450mm thick (or .900mm thick for the Metrotile Secure Solution profiles). This means that one truckload of Metrotile profiles can offer the same roof coverage as seven truckloads of traditional roof materials. This also means less carbon dioxide emissions and less strain on the environment.
Is there technical back-up?
Absolutely – from general enquiries to a full specification service, from assistance via site visits and on-site training, Metrotile is with you every step of the way before, during and after your rooftop installation.
What steel is used for the manufacture of Metrotile products?
Metrotile uses Z185 quality steel, the highest quality available to our industry. Each tile offers unparalleled strength and higher performance than traditional materials
