Dundee University Microbuilding

At HL Metals we provide many services to assist you with your project, e.g. pre-tender budget costs, product advice, roof build up advice, roofing substrate requirements, recommended roof systems as well as full and comprehensive survey reports for existing roof structures. We readily supply all the technical information you need and are happy to answer any questions you have to make sure the whole process runs smoothly. We can assist with general specification requirements and more specialised roof and wall structure specification. We oversee our roofing and cladding works from start to finish.

We have worked on an immense range of projects from small residential buildings to large commercial projects, whether it is work on a new building, or changes to an existing building you are interested in, please do not hesitate to contact us for impartial advice or any further information on the services we provide.

Please bear in mind that for the purposes of imparting information about the products and services we provide within the pages of our website we predominantly refer to ZINC roofing or cladding. This is primarily due to ZINC standing seam being the most popular product we receive enquiries on. However, bear in mind that we can also provide COPPER, STAINLESS STEEL and ALUMINIUM for roofing and cladding depending on your budget and location.
