SMARTSLEEVE PIPE COVER
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.
The “Cone” base section ensures a perfect fit over a Metro SMARTjack and almost eliminates the need for
flashing sealant due to the double-wall sleeve design. The top of the SMARTsleeve even has a “Critter Guard” to
prevent debris and rodents from entering the pipe, a probem in some heavily wooded areas. SMARTsleeves are available in Metro’s
standard stone-coated color range, so try them on your next Metro roof and experience the ease of install and smartest looking roof
on the block.

a roof with a true Mediterranean tile look but without the excessive weight of concrete or clay has been
a challenge for homeowners. Metro Roof Products is about to make it easier.
Metro has developed a new stone-coated steel roof panel, the MetroROMAN® Tile, that gives homeowners exactly the look they
want while being lightweight, walkable and virtually unbreakable. Metro V.P. of Marketing, Pete Croft, announced that the
MetroROMAN® Tile, initially designed for use in Europe, is being made available early next month in California and Florida.
Demand in those states is rising for such a roof 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.
“We know customer interest is high because of the response to us showing the MetroROMAN® Tile at a recent roofing show in
Florida,” Croft says. “Response from contractors was amazing, also. Their customers have been asking for this.”
The MetroROMAN® Tile gives Metro Roof Products a line of stone-coated steel roof panels that offer virtually every shape a
homeowner demands. Metro offers batten-less shake and tile profiles, a low-profile shingle with concealed fasteners, and now the
Roman in a true Mediterranean tile look.
“We are taking the appeal of our current lineup of easy-to-install batten-less systems and providing an alternative for those
who demand that little extra in looks,” Croft says.
Installed either ‘batten-less’ or on battens (1x4 or 2x2), the MetroROMAN® Tile panels feature half-inch vertical ribs for strength. The ribs, combined
with the panels’ tight proximity to the roof deck, create solid walkability.
A patent-pending design on the overlap and sidelap details allow a clean fit to maintain the beautiful tile look. The nose and back lip
are more substantial than other tile designs on the market.
