WHY IS OUR LIGHTWEIGHT TILES ROOFING SYSTEM UNIQUE

WHY IS OUR LIGHTWEIGHT TILES ROOFING SYSTEM UNIQUE

WHY IS OUR LIGHTWEIGHT TILES ROOFING SYSTEM UNIQUE IS THE FACT THEY ARE MADE FROM POLYPROPYLENE. LightWeight Tiles Ltd manufacture and distribute our own lightweight roofing system, to the highest standard, and pride ourselves on our attention to detail. Our recycled roofing tiles are made here in the UK by our family run business, and we have been producing and distributing our LightWeight roofing system for many years throughout the UK and Europe. On a regular basis we have had customers thinking our tiles are the traditional style on a metal form pan tile...THIS IS NOT THE CASE! Please read more to find out what our products are made of and why they are so unique. 

What makes our products so unique?

What makes our products so unique is the fact they are made from polypropylene many of the advantages in using this material are well worth considering a choice of which roofing to use they can also be recycled, making them a brilliant, eco-friendly option. All our tiles are guaranteed for 25 years. From the numerous amounts of regular positive feedback, we get is that no special equipment needs to be used for cutting or bending as our tiles can simply be cut with a disc grinder or hand saw, there are no dangerous sharp edges or opportunities for rusting unlike metal tiles.

Furthermore, as we all become more conscious about our environment it's great to know that we have a roofing product that can be recycled, and that a percentage of the core material is made from recycled plastic. The strength of this material is very impressive its usage in the car and lorry industry for bumpers and car panels etc is a true quality and strength endorsement.

That's right! Our tiles are a recycled plastic pan tile...not metal!

This is how are Tiles begin...

A shortened time lapse of LightWeight Tiles being used for an over roof conversion

Not only are our lightweight roofing tiles very light and strong, but they are also simple to fit on a wide range of roofs especially conservatories. Our lightweight tiles are easy to saw and cut and with just some batons, a disc grinder, handsaw, a drill, a screwdriver and a handful of screws, you can completely renew your roof in just a couple of hours.

 

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.
