Why Metal Roof Tiles are a Worthwhile Investment - Britmet Lightweight Roofing

• reduce the need to use purlins and cladding rails because they lock together for rigidity
• offer the flexibility of being laid either a) running ridge to eaves, with a section to allow for the fixing of the roof sheets; or b) rafter to rafter, where the sheets are fixed directly to the trays
• have a longer 'life' expectancy than other roofing materials
• perform well in extreme weather conditions because of the strength and durability of the materials and fixings
• be fireproof
• be more environmentally friendly because the metal roof tiles themselves: a) contain recycled materials b) are 100% recyclable once their long life ends.
