Metrotile Roofing
Metrotile Roofing

Choose town first to see if it is available there.
Metrotile Roofing is ISO 9001 accredited. International test reports, appraisals and field results confirm they are 100% waterproof, earthquake safe, fire resistant and able to withstand hurricane-force winds of up to 190kph (120mph).

All of Metrotile’s roofing products are fabricated from Zincalume®-protected steel. Metrotile’s textured finish provides added protection by embedding natural stone granules in an acrylic base-coat. A final clear acrylic over-glaze is applied before being oven cured. This extremely durable UV-resistant coating enables Metrotile roofing products to withstand the harshest environments around the world.

Metrotile is manufactured to the highest quality with exceptional durability and strength. The tile profiles and roofing accessories are engineered to interlock and overlap to resist wind lifting and keep out the harsh elements. At less than 7kg/m2, a Metrotile roof is a ‘Lightweight Roofing System’, so considerable cost savings can be achieved during construction.

Can I drink water from my roof?
Yes, rainwater collected from Metrotile roofs is safe to consume. After your new roof has been installed you need to wait for two good rainfalls before beginning collection.
Is a steel roof fire safe?
Steel roofing is classified as a non-combustible roofing material (Class A). In new construction and in many re-roofing applications the metal roofing system is a Class A non-combustible roof assembly. That means it is the most resistant to fire.
Does the colour fade?
The history of Metrotile’s products demonstrates that fading is not a problem. Metrotile uses either naturally coloured or ceramic coated stone granules on their tiles. The natural stone cannot fade and the ceramic coated stone is manufactured with the highest quality pigments and fired at temperatures above 700 deg Celsius. Over time, a slight change in colour may occur due to settling of airborne contaminants. However periodic rain or washing the roof with a garden hose will keep the roof looking new.
Will a steel roof rust?
The ZINCALUME coated steel has been formulated to give a significantly longer service life than a galvanised coating. The ZINCALUME steel coating combines the corrosive protection of aluminium with the sacrificial protection of zinc, giving the advantages of both metals. The resulting alloy coating enhances corrosion resistance, making it ideal for such applications as roofing. This is why the Metrotile roof system is referred to as "The final Roofing System", and is backed up with a 50 year limited warranty.
Is a stone-coated steel roof noisy in the rain?
No. The dead air space between the steel roofing panel and the underlayment minimize exterior noise even in a rainstorm. The stone-coating also reduces the noise of the rain when it hits the tiles.
Can you walk on a steel roof?
Yes. Some care must be exercised while walking on the roof, but note that roofers walk all over the tiles during the installation process.
