As a homeowner, the money you put into your home's upkeep is an investment in one of your most valuable assets. And a major improvement, such as a new roof, can quickly add value to your home.
If you have any kind of plans to sell in the future, a new roof can make your home look crisp to prospective buyers, and help you stay competitive in the market. In the same vein, a damaged or old roof could turn prospective buyers away. That’s why when you choose a product for your upcoming roofing project, the aesthetic is just as much of a consideration as durability.

‘Antica’ metal roofing tile is the latest product Metrotile have released in their extensive product line. Its refined appearance is inspired by traditional Mediterranean clay tile without the inherent weight and cost. The Metrotile Antica Tile is also available in a variety of colour blends inspired by of the region.

ANTICA TILE USED IN RECENT ‘SEISMIC-PROOFING’ PROJECT IN NZ
The Antica tile is so durable that it was recently used for a large roofing project at Parnell School in Auckland, New Zealand. The roofing project for this school is the first part of a large project around seismic strengthening of older school buildings. In this particular case, the primary strategy was to replace a heavy concrete roof with a lightweight alternative.
The Antica profile in ‘Clay’ colour was selected for its ability to retain the schools’ original look and feel. The architectural team at GHD completed the project design and Focus Construction Group carried out the construction work.
