NZ'S FIRST CF SHINGLE ROOF

Date: 23 Aug 2018

In this blog, we’re showcasing our first New Zealand CF Shingle re-roof project. Read about how the Metrotile team and CF products provided a much-needed solution for an Auckland homeowner.

INSTALLING METROTILE CF SHINGLE IN NEW LYNN

The installer was Concept Roofing, and they re-roofed a home in Auckland suburb New Lynn. They took off asphalt shingle and installed Metrotile CF Shingle, Charcoal Blend.

When the New Lynn homeowners realised they needed to replace their asphalt shingle roof, they looked into other options. They thought metal tiles sounded great, but wanted a different look to the common concrete tile appearance. Metrotile suggested their new CF Shingle system, which was just the look the homeowner was hoping for.

The Concept Roofing team were able to fix the CF Shingle system directly to the existing ply substrate. First, they removed the asphalt shingles and the old building paper, then they laid new building paper and installed the new tiles. Nice and easy.

Afterwards, homeowner Dean had the following to say: “The install team were great, and did a very professional job for us with minimal fuss or disruption. All in all, it has been a great experience and I would happily recommend the Concept roofing team and Metrotile’s products.”

A SLEEK, MODERN AESTHETIC 

Metrotile’s CF Shingle gives a sleek and modern appearance to a home. Its low profile and concealing fixings give a unique look and shadow line. This attractive aesthetic is paired with the practical benefits of a metal tile solution: it’s durable and strong. The CF Shingle has been engineered to resemble the look without the issues of a traditional asphalt roofing solution.

The result of extensive research and development, Metrotile’s innovative ‘Concealed Fastening’ system is a world first. Other systems leave gaps and expose screws to the elements. In contrast, the CF Shingle protects all fastening elements by interlocking and overlapping to resist wind lifting. This makes roofs more watertight, durable and reliable than ever before.

THE ADVANTAGES OF STONE COATED PRESSED METAL TILES

If your weather concerns go beyond rain, don’t worry because Metrotile roofs have you covered. Metrotile is ISO 9001 accredited and international tests, reports, appraisals and field results confirm that our products are waterproof, earthquake safe, fire resistant and able to withstand hurricane-force winds of up to 190kph. They also feature a UV-resistant coating which, as you can imagine, is essential under the harsh Kiwi sun.

To deliver world-first performance, Metrotile metal tiles are made of the highest quality raw materials, starting with New Zealand steel. This ensures that the durability and strength of a Metrotile roof is second to none. At less than 7.5kg/m2, a Metrotile roof is a ‘Lightweight Roofing System’, meaning considerable cost savings for new builds.

Metrotile’s CF Shingle is not only the most waterproof stone-coated steel shingle on the market, but the most realistic looking and fastest to install. A Metrotile roof lets you improve the look and value of your home in a matter of days. A Metrotile roof will safeguard your investment and give you peace of mind, because it’s backed by a Metrotile Warranty.
