We are constantly looking at ways of improving our low pitch LightWeight Roofing System. We are delighted to offer our specially made foam gap filler. Our foam gap fillers are a just as unique as our Plastic LightWeight Roofing System as it is specially manufactured to our tile. 

We have developed this simple solution so as to offer an addition to the current roofing putty (Flexim)

The foam gap filler is sold in pairs of strips, covering the length of each tile (118cm)

These foam strips are formed to the exact top and bottom profiles of each tile.

 

Each pair consists of two strips, the first strip will fix (by means of self-adhesive tape) along the lower lip along the bottom of the ridge tile.

As one screws the ridge tiles down the moulded profile fits perfectly to form a snug firm seal. This product effectively hides the gap and makes a weather proof seal.

 

In some cases where the final tile fits onto the last baton (closest to the gutter/facia) there is a gap to be considered .

That’s where the second strip comes in!

It simply fits under the tile, to hide the exposed baton and gap, again making an effective weather proof seal.

It also has a self-adhesive tape to help keep the strip in place whilst the tile is screwed into place.

 

Our foam gap filler like the rest of our light weight roofing system is extremely easy to work with, and of course can be cut very easily with either scissors or a Stanley knife .

Its available as an accessory on our eCommerce site.

Since our launch of our new foam fillers, we have had a customer purchase these with a shed bundle package. He was happy to take some images of the installation of the foam fillers for us. I have put together all the images to create a slideshow.

I had been looking for a few years for a new roof for my conservatory as it was too hot in summer and too cold in winter to use. I had had quotes over £11,000 for a new complete roof, removing the glass, which I thought was pointless. The glass acts as insulation and would be a huge waste of money because it would of been just thrown in the bin.

Being a Mechanical Engineer, I worked out that if I could find something lightweight and looked like the roof fitted to my house, it would be a great idea for the new roof. The weight loading for the conservatory was worked out to withstand the extra load of a few feet of snow, turned to ice, so I knew the extra weight of a lightweight roofing system would be fine.

I found Light Weight Tiles, http://www.lightweighttiles.co.uk/ by chance, on searching the net. When I saw that the tiles weighed in at 6 kg per square metre, I knew they were not a problem for my conservatory and with the choice of different finishes, I was able (having purchased the sample pack) to choose a tiles that matched my house roof.

I could of fitted the tiles myself but felt it was a better idea to use one of their recommended fitters.

After striking a great deal with the fitters, they came and did the job. It only took 6 hours to do my 28 square metre conservatory and it looked fantastic. I did have the inside done at the same time with simple white panelled pvc covering, which helped with deflect ting the light and finished the job off perfect.

I am so pleased with the finished roof and it has made our conservatory useable all year round.

I would highly recommend Light Weight Tiles to anyone wanting a simple, cheap and beautiful way to turn their conservatory into a useable room.

And the added bonus is, the tiles are made from recycled materials.
