Overview: Metro Roof Products’ ownership and management team has a wealth of experience in the manufacturing and marketing of stone coated metal roofing products.
Metro Roof Products has experienced tremendous growth since its formal factory opening in January 2000 and has become a leading manufacturer of stone-coated steel roofing products.
The Metro USA state of the art manufacturing facility is located in Oceanside California USA on four acres of land and produces a wide range of stone-coated steel roofing product profiles to suit almost any architecture.
Metro has built a strong leadership position in this industry and has a series of “firsts” to its name:
FIRST with a “Concealed fastener,” direct-to-deck stone-coated SHINGLE panel - 1997
FIRST with a “Rake Channel” with an integrated “Locator-Lip” design for easy install & added weather protection - 2000
FIRST with a “Nail-on” batten-less, direct-to-deck stone-coated shake panel - 2002
FIRST with a fully integrated stone-coated roof vent “Metro SMART-Vent” panel - 2003
FIRST with the SMART-Jack pipe flashing & SMART-Sleeve pipe cover - 2004
All of which add up to “Smart Roofs for Smart People™”.
Metro’s newest accessory item, the Stone-Coated SMARTsleeve Vent Pipe Cover, is the long-awaited item that provides a professional trimmed-out look for most pipes on the roof. It allows for easy contractor installation on the most common pipe sizes, by merely sliding the Metro SMARTsleeve over the existing pipe after you have flashed it with a Metro SMARTjack Flashing. A simple screw through the back of the sleeve into the PVC pipe secures it in place. The SMARTsleeve is constructed of an all-plastic design with both an inner and outer sleeve, allowing it to fit either 1-1/4" - 3" diameter pipes or move to the next SMARTsleeve size to accommodate the 3" - 4" pipes.
Metro ROMAN-TILE creates the timeless look of true Mediterranean tile without the excessive weight. At only 1.5 lbs./sq. ft. it’s one of the lightest roofing tiles on the market today. And with a heart of steel, coated by an advanced stone granule coating, offers the best protection for your home. Its patented design allows for a secure fit to any architectural style. Initially designed for use in Europe, and now being made available in California and Florida.
Demand in those states is rising for such a roof system because of fire-safety concerns in California and hurricane damage in Florida. Mediterranean tile-style roofs are particularly popular in those regions. But the crushing weight of concrete and clay tile systems pose engineering challenges when re-roofing most wood-frame homes.
MetroSHAKE, the batten-less alternative eliminates costly wood battens and allows faster installation times. Each panel is forged with deep wood grain impressions creating an exceptionally strong, secure steel roof covering for any architectural style. All Metro products provide heavy-duty warranty performance, from 120 m.p.h. winds to hail impact and fire resistance.
MetroSHAKE is finished with an attractive stone coating and embedded in a UV resistant
acrylic polymer for a lasting bond to Zincalume® steel. They are designed to be Secure, Maintenance Free, Attractive, Reliable and made with Top Quality materials.
MetroSHINGLE roofing panels provide the cleanest roof lines with the incredible strength of modern stone-coated steel. Traditional shingle roofing can weather and separate after a few years and are vulnerable to high winds. Incredibly strong, MetroSHINGLE will easily outlast and outperform standard shingle roofs and are backed by a 50 year material warranty. That means total security for your home or business from the top down. MetroSHINGLE panels come in a choice of six great colors that will enhance the appearance and durability of your home.
Ventilating your roof has become a hot topic for contractors and Metro has met the challenge with its innovative line of SMARTvents. There is one available for every Metro profile and they integrate perfectly with the surrounding field panels for easy and speedy installation.

The SMARTjack is constructed of an all Aluminum base and pre-molded cone that’s integrated with a rubber self-sealing gasket. It’s this gasket that allows the 3-IN-1 SMARTjack to fit pipes from 1-1/4" to 3" in diameter. We also have a 3-IN-4 SMARTjack to fit pipes from 3" to 4" in diameter, so you’re covered for virtually all your pipe flashing needs.
The aluminum base allows the SMARTjack to be molded to the contours of the Metro panel and can eliminate the time consuming double-pan flashing method (Sandwiching) of the vent flashing. They are available in Metro’s standard stone-coated color range, so try them on your next roof and experience the difference of a factory stone-coated vent flashing from Metro.
Our technical innovation and commitment to quality starts with the computerized stone-chip grading & blending process. Metro uses a finer, higher quality, Non-Oiled natural granite stone chip, which provides one of the tightest industry stone-coating matrixes available. The finished result is a stone-coated steel panel roof product that carries a long-life, weather-proof warranty. With a Metro roof overhead, your home will be ready to withstand natures toughest challenges.
