When we think of building our dream house, we often consider so much on the design, the interiors, the appliances, the color, but have you ever considered begin your thinking from the top – literally.
All houses are protected through its walls and roofs. So it is only fitting to take note of what kind of protection you will be getting for your sides and top.
Recently, I was included in a plant visit at Metalink production plant. Metalink is a local manufacturer of building and housing materials in the Philippines.
It is a common trend in the country to use galvanized iron roofs, as it tend to be more affordable compared to bricks. But in terms of design, clay tile roofing, personally, have the advantage.
But Metalink, with its new innovation, Stone Tile, puts both design and affordability on the same footing.
Metalink is the first producer of Long Span Stone Coated Roofs in the country branded as Stone Tile.
Stone Tile is a galvanized iron roof enhanced by applying with natural sand granules on top and oil free polyester at the bottom.
The stone coating gives that clay tile like look making it more elegant compared to regular galvanized roofs.
The Stone Tile gives added protection against corrosion even for houses situated near coastal areas.
The Stone Tile also has extra sound-proofing feature that keeps away some of the noises commonly experienced with regular GI roofs.
It comes in four (4) colors Brick Red, Coffee Brown, Charcoal Grey and Pine Green. Personally, I like the brick red and pine green – for that more sophisticated look.
The four colors are based on the natural sand colors, only when applied to the galvanized irons, will it be dyed using ceramic sintering process to have that uniform gradient.
Metalink Stone Tile is also the first long span stone coated roof in the world at 9 meters in length.
And what’s cool about the Stone Tile is that, amidst it rigidness, it is easy to install. Few screws, rivets, sand coats and sealant and you’re good to go.
The Metalink Stone Tile has available stone coated accessories (like valley gutter) to maintain that uniform look for your roofing.
The Metalink Stone Tile is expected to withstand molds for 10 years, while about 20 years against rusting.
At Php 650 per meter sheet, the Metalink Stone Tile is more affordable than any stone coated roofs in the market now.
The Metalink Stone Tile undergoes testing on each batch to assure the quality of the roofs before it goes out of the factory.
Currently, Metalink has orders for Stone Tile to be used in upcoming development of known subdivision developers in the country.
Personally, I like the Metalink Stone Tile. The elegant look and value for money are a good combo to consider for having the next roof change or building a new house.
