Barn new build in GreenCoat PLX, an ideal zinc roof alternative.


The Metal Roof Company specialise in the supply of high-quality standing seam metal roof coils along with high quality coated Steel, Zinc, Copper and matching rainwater goods.

Our flagship product is GreenCoat® PLX Pro BT, a Swedish-made high-grade steel used for standing seam roof or façade cladding, and often used a Copper or zinc roof alternative. GreenCoat PLX is an eco-friendly standing seam metal manufactured by SSAB Swedish Steel, a mill that is known across Europe for its exceptional high-grade steel. GreenCoat PLX can withstand harsh weather conditions and still look exceptional, hence its use where a Zinc or Copper standing seam roof is not appropriate.

The Metal Roof Company has a trusted supplier network helping us deliver a range of additional high-quality products for metal standing seam roofs or facades.  We supply industry respected clips, fixings, underlays and roof membranes to metal roof contractors across the UK and Ireland. We have been involved with the design and specification of many different types of steel standing seam metal roofs, with some gaining domestic and international recognition.

We offer practical knowledge and advice to architects, main contractors, developers and homeowners. By working closely with clients, we can offer a broad range of options and, when technical or design challenges arise, we can suggest alternatives for zinc roofers, aluminium copper and stainless-steel roofing. Often, when faced with such challenges, the metal solutions that we offer are not always driven by cost savings.  Technical challenges, compatibility with adjacent construction materials and project location will be considerations for any given alternative suggestion.

We understand that although the architect or metal roofing specialist will be involved from the start, it is ultimately the experienced Zinc roofing or metal roofing contractor that will make the final purchase of the metal just prior to installation. Therefore, we maintain close relationships with experienced metal roof installers across the UK and Ireland and we see many projects through from start to finish; from architect to contractor.

To enhance your metal roof investment, you can purchase the complete range of Lindab Rainline™ Gutters, Lindab drainpipes and  a wide variety of aluminium and cast-iron gutters and downpipes to match your metal roof, usually on a next-day delivery basis. We also offer the popular Lindab Magestic range of gutters and downpipes. This bright ‘galvanised’ surface is ideal for coastal locations as it repels the salt crystals in the atmosphere, the Magestic finish eventually patinates to a dusty grey colour in two or three years yet still maintains is remarkable weather resistance.

When purchased through us, we can help you find a trusted and experienced metal roof installer to fit your roof, rainwater items or both. Many of our trusted installers are members of the FTMRC and have years of experience in fitting GreenCoat PLX, Zinc and Copper roofs. Most of these installers are Artisan Contractors, having gained exceptional skills and knowledge of the metal roof industry and we continually share knowledge and industry developments with this small but dedicated community.

Our Head Office is in London but we provide advice on metal roofing products and services throughout the UK and Ireland.
