Met-Tile, Ontario, Calif., a leading "tile panel" roofing system, is now available in an aluminum substrate with an environmentally friendly Meadow Green finish. Though it looks like tile, the roofing actually consists of the same profile as the standard Met-Tile system: long-length, 3-foot-wide panels that are applied vertically and secured with screw fasteners for wind- and weather-tight performance. Because of aluminum's superior resistance to corrosion and wear, the product is especially recommended for use in coastal (i.e., salt air) and other corrosive environments. The .032 aluminum panel system weighs approximately 85 pounds per square, yet it offers strength, durability and fire resistance.
