Steel roofs no longer need to look ugly thanks to MetroRoofs imitation tiles.

From the photos you would think the houses have traditional tiled roofs, but no, they don't. They are all steel roofs that have been stone-coated to give them incredibly realistic appearances. The company also claims that the roof will not produce excessive heat thanks to proper ventilation. It's also not noisy due to the stone coating and ´dead air space´.

So, it looks like the real thing, has all the advantages of the real thing, so what makes it so special? Well for homeowners in hurricane and tornado prone areas, it could be particularly interesting, as tests have shown that it can withstand winds of up to 120mph.

There is no hint as to pricing on the website without filling in an inquiry form, but they do offer the following guarantees:

- 50 year fully transferable limited warranty
- 50 year workmanship and materials warranty
- 25 year year appearance warranty
- 120 miles per hour wind speed warranty and hail stone impact penetration.
