When you make the decision to re-roof, it’s easy to get caught up in the exciting and obvious stuff – how it’s going to make your home look fresh, fantastic and increase its overall value. Pouring over colour and profile charts and imagining how it’s going to look is a natural and important consideration in the re-roofing process.
But what is equally, if not more important, is how it functions. How you choose to re-roof your home now will influence how your roof performs now and down the track, and how safe and healthy it will keep your home environment.
In this blog, we explain how your new roof should not only look great, it should also function impressively – saving you money in the long run and increasing the long-term value of your home.

Metrotile remains a pioneer in product innovation, research and development, which has led to our advanced manufacturing processes. Our panels are first pressed and cut into sizes from premium coils of NZ steel, and then manufactured into uniform panels during our signature eight-layer process.
This process includes the application of Zincalume based steel on both sides, priming on both sides, acrylic base coat, natural stone granules, and finally, a pure acrylic over-glaze before being baked and hardened. The result is one of the most durable and reliable roofing systems on the market.

Re-roofing with a Metrotile metal roof will save you money. As a metal roof is much lighter than traditional concrete or clay tiles it doesn’t need the structural support that these heavy traditional roofs do. So, the framing with Metrotile will be lighter, be easier to handle, and cost less.
Metrotile metal roofs are easy and quick to install. Our interlocking and modular roofing system is much easier to handle than other roofing materials meaning the roof can be safely and quickly installed in all weather conditions, and less money spent on installation time.
