Do you have a weight issue with your roofing tiles? 

If your roof bows from the strain of your existing roof tiles, why not convert it using our LightWeight Tiles. 

Our Tiles only weigh 6kg per meter square for our granulated finished tile and only around 4kgs for our smooth finished tiles. Our tiles are plastic made from recycled polymer, to the highest standard, and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.

Using our tiles will give you the chance to use your room all year round. Keeping it cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter. 

There is no need to remove your existing roof as with our tiles being only 6kgs per meter square you can place them over the top of the existing roof without causing any further weight issues. This can be seen in our blog "How our tiles can be placed over the top of your existing roof". 

With the availability of five different granulated colour tiles and two smooth colour tiles we can keep the tile colour as close to the original roof tile colour as possible please see our products. 

Why not contact us today to see if we can help you with your roofing weight issue.

More and more people are coming to LightWeight Tiles for their roofing system as it is suitable for the old timber framed conservatory roofs. The existing roof can be too heavy and then it starts to bow. LightWeight Tiles will stop this from happening. 

 

 

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!
