“ I had to increase the pitch as it was insufficient for water to run off of the tiles, I built a rise of additional 15 degrees onto the small pitch already on the triple walled roof. This was taking the front edge to rise to 200mm at the back, then flasbanded and bonded to the roof tile. The customer found that the conservatory wasn't useful to them before and this has made it into a additional room, with a bed settee as a guest room. The customer was absolutely thrilled with the transformation, and I was pleased with a trouble free installation. ”

“ This old building in our garden is known to us as the Ranch House. It is known to be at least 75 years old and may well be more. The roof in particular was falling apart, it was covered in corrugated bitumen sheeting which was well past its used by date. We had two choices; demolish it or renovate it. We decided to renovate but felt that it deserved something better than corrugated sheeting on the roof. This was why we selected Lightweight Tiles after several email exchanges with Laura and Susan plus going to meet Laura at the Renovation Show in Birmingham.
The hard part was completely rebuilding the roof structure as we decided to change the pitch of the roof. Fitting the tiles was easy. Two of us fitted 70 tiles on the long side in 5 hours which included a leisurely lunch and several cups of tea. I fitted the remaining 30 on the other side on my own in about the same time. I have one tip though, it is worth drilling a small pilot hole for each screw, you can then fit the screws much more neatly.
We are very pleased with the transformation, I keep going down the garden to look at it!”
