One of the latest trends in roofing and design is mono pitched roofs. Mono pitched roofs are a great option as they offer a stunning and modern architectural look that’s easy and hassle-free to construct.
Let’s take a look at how the aesthetically pleasing mono pitched roofs can work superbly with Metrotile's stone-coated steel products. Metrotile wants to break the traditional perception that it’s only possible to use long-run roofing on mono pitched designs.
When planning a new build, it may not be a designer's first instinct to make the roof a priority. However, the roof is crucial to the health of the home. It’s the part of the home that protects inhabitants from the harsh elements, so it's an aspect that needs to be well considered and researched.
Recently, there’s been a growing trend toward mono-pitched roofs, a single sloping surface design that differs from the traditional and common gabled roofs that pitch in two directions. Traditionally, people utilised the mono look for their garages and sheds, but an increasing number are now employing them on their homes. Also known as skillion roofs, they consist of a single surface and usually standalone — meaning they don't need to be attached to any other part of the roof.
The key advantages of this look are that they’re easy to construct and can be completed with less labour than traditional gabled roofs. This means they can be completed in a shorter timeframe, at a cheaper expense. They can also add size to interior rooms while giving a great look to the ceilings, if their design follows the pitch of the roof.

Metrotile's traditional profiles fit a minimum roof pitch of 15 degrees. Metrotile are pleased to announce their innovative new-to-market tile — the CF tile profile which can fit a minimum roof pitch of 9.5 degrees.
New technologies or materials are always available for new builds, mono-pitched roofs being no exception. Metrotile products look superb with mono-pitches and are easy to construct, durable and look superb.
