Metal "Tile Panel" Roofing Offers Light Weight, Energy Savings
Weighing only 125 lbs. per square, Met-Tile is just a fraction the weight of some clay and concrete tiles, yet it provides a surprisingly authentic look. It allows owners of existing projects to upgrade to the look of tile with no need for costly truss reinforcement. On new projects, it can allow substantial savings on substructure costs. The 26-gauge steel panels come in 3-ft. widths and varying lengths up to 20 ft.
Met-Tile has been approved by the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) for both windstorm resistant and impact (hail) resistant performance. Property owners who use the product may be eligible for insurance credits. It also carries a 230+ mph wind rating.
Met-Tile's excellent performance is a result of its lightweight and weather-tight design. Panels are tightly secured with screw fasteners that keep the roof in place, even under the heaviest wind and rain.
