When seeking a new roof, it can be hard to know where to start and who to trust. And while durability is everything, a high-quality roof is more than just a premium product - top craftsmanship skills are essential.
In this blog, we look at how the Metrotile team places great importance on the standard of installation of our roofs. We look at a recent roofing project in the Waikato that recently won an award for its high-quality install.
The Metrotile team recognizes the value of quality roof installations, and strives to ensure craftsmanship is held up across the New Zealand roofing industry. We demonstrate this by sponsoring the Professionalism in Metal Tile Roof Installation Award. The award recognizes quality installations from across New Zealand and is open to all members of the RANZ who can implement metal tile installations with the X factor.
This year’s winner was Chris George of Hamilton based company, Cooke Roofing. Cooke Roofing use metal tiles in almost all of their builds, and favour our Royal textured metal tiles in charcoal due to their great aesthetic look.
The winning project (pictured) was a challenging one with unusual eyebrow details and steep pitches.
The photos above and below show the winning project of the Professionalism in Metal Tile Roof Installation Award. You can clearly see the striking textured finish of our Royal metal tiles. Chris George installed the roof with three workers in a job that took seven days - all due to his attention to detail.
The unique form of royal
The Metrotile Royal tile features a textured finish in a shingle-type design, a unique look that will add dimensions and shadow lines to your roof. This great aesthetic can be enjoyed in combination with the benefits of durability, performance and sustainability that come with all of our stone coated steel tiles.
Extensive research and development in our design process has ensured every Metrotile product is manufactured to the highest quality with exceptional durability and strength. Our tile profiles and roofing accessories are engineered to interlock and overlap to resist wind lifting and keep out the harsh elements.
Metrotile Royal textured-finish tiles are available in a choice of colours from deep charcoals to earthy browns.
Craftsmanship skills are essential to Metrotile’s premium and durable roofing systems. We ensure our installations are achieved to a high standard, something which has been reflected through our sponsorship of the Professionalism in Metal Tile Roof Installation Award. We aim to recognise quality roof installs that have a great aesthetic along with excellent durability to last a lifetime.
