Having a fire rating certificate is essential for us here at LightWeight Tiles Ltd. We take a lot of pride and care in our LightWeight Roofing System. So, having these tests carried out give us that genuine belief in our products.

We have had a few different tests completed on our roofing system such as wind, hail, ice and water. They were also tested for earthquakes.

The outcomes for these were:

Wind –  LightWeight Tiles Roofing System can uphold wind of up to 120mph.

Hail resistant- Class 4 impact resistant

Snow/Ice and water – Freeze/ thaw resistant, no risk to rust or water penetration at fixing.  

The earthquake testing outcome stated that they were lightweight and added shear strength- meaning no injury or cuts were obtained.

These test outcomes can be provided to yourself if needed or you can download the technical data sheet from our downloads folder.

We believe in our products and the capability of them through severe weather conditions which is why we guarantee them for 25 years.

 

If you would like any more information, then please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are happy to provide you with certificates and reports if necessary.

 

 

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!
