European Tile Metal Roof Profile

Designed to install over a 2 x 2 batten system, European Tile installs on 16 inch centers which is a great feature when installing on steep sloped roof or roofs over 36.5 degrees. One of the best features besides the stylish look that emulates traditional clay tile roofing is the ability to replace individual panels.  Because this profile is a 2 x 2 batten system and is installed from ridge to eave if a panel gets damaged by a fallen tree the damaged panel can be replaced without disturbing the entire roof. A variety of colors are available in this profile too.
