Choosing your roof tile finish:
Each project we complete leaves the internal part of the project with a sharp neat finish to allow your room to feel clean and pleasing to look at. The external section of each project is also very important to both us and customers. This is why we ensure all customers have the opportunity of choosing from a range of slates from both leading manufacturers Metrotile and Tapco. Each customer is also given a 50 year warranty with some slates we offer ensuring every roof has a proven weatherproof structure that combats different weather conditions throughout the year.

Burnt Umber effect
Metrotile Lightweight Roofing originated in New Zealand over 40 years ago, demonstrating that you can expect so much more from a product as taken as established and antiquated as the traditional roof tile.
The concept is deceptively simple – press roof tiles from a highly durable, modern material (in this case, the highest quality steel), galvanise with an aluminium, magnesium and zinc (ZAM) compound and cover with a stone-chip coating. The result is a roof tile that, to this day, exceeds the expectations of a traditional modern roof tile by a significant margin.
The Strength of Steel
The use of steel is the masterstroke of Metrotile’s design. By using steel as the base material, it means the profiles can be pressed much thinner than a traditional slate or clay tile and therefore weigh just one seventh of those products. The sheer strength of steel means that a Metrotile roof is far more durable and incredibly secure, whether held up against petty vandalism or the most extreme weather conditions.
You read that correctly, by the way – Metrotile profiles are thinner and lighter, but much stronger than traditional tiles!
State of the Art Production
Steel is fully recyclable and we ensure our profiles are pressed with a minimum of 25% recycled materials, yet the sustainability benefits don’t stop there.
Each of our profiles is pressed at our facility in Tongerun, Belgium that achieved ISO14001 for its state of the art wastewater recycling system. Due to the low-weight factor, we can transport our tiles to site with just one seventh of the transport requirements.
An installed Metrotile roof offers exceptional insulation benefits, helping you keep on top of those ever-rising pesky home energy bills. In recent years, Metrotile has also become the roofing material of choice for conservatory manufacturers and solid roof conversions – thanks to Metrotile’s low weight, the average conservatory can have a fully insulated roof space on it instead of leaking all of your expensive heating into the outside world.
And if you want your roof to work for you? Well, Metrotile is ideal for rainwater harvesting and also offers a fully integrated photovoltaic system that generates energy from sunlight for use within your home.
