Below are some comments from our customers that have used our lightweight roofing system for their conservatory roof replacement, garage roof replacement, shed roof replacement or other outdoor building roof replacement. All have all been very happy with both our product and the finished result.
“ Just finished new roof on conservatory with budget tiles and its looking just great. I am well pleased, well worth the money. Tiles are fantastic before and after. ”
“ Thank you to LightWeight Tiles in Lydney my dream is heading to reality. After buying a garden room with my share of inheritance money after losing my mother. I was so upset at the quality I was distraught. Lightweight tiles came to the rescue. Not only did the team in the office – Susan and Carol help us with the estimate and order, but we were shown how the tiles are produced and got to meet the whole team, who were really informative and helpful.
As a bonus Charlie and Josh even spent a couple of evenings after work putting the tiles on for me. The glazing is almost complete, and it is so lovely and warm that I can’t wait to spend more of my time relaxing inside, remembering my Mum in a lovely environment. Thank you so much
“ I just wanted to say how good your product was when I used it recently .
I took down an old wooden conservatory and replaced it with a brick one that had a wooden roof . The front of the conservatory roof sat on a wall plate on top of the French door frame and I didn’t want the weight of concrete tiles on top of that,so I researched and found your product.
The videos of how the product was made and installed and how durable they were was a deciding factor in me choosing yourself over other similar product I had seen.
I have to say the service from the lady who took the order to the prompt delivery was 1st class and friendly , and the price was a lot less than I had thought was going to be .
The product itself was top quality and installation was as simple as it could be with everything fitting together without any problems and the verge trims finished it off fantastically and all the people who have seen it have commented on how good it looks .
I have been a building site manager for 25 years plus so have a good idea of things and how they should work and I have to say I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or use your product again.
So well done for developing such a great product and wishing your company every success in the future.
“ Hello, just a quick update. I ordered the tiles Sunday evening & received them before 11.00 Tuesday.
Fantastic service by you and the haulier. Thank you.
I shall not be starting the roof just yet as I have a number of preliminary jobs to do first but I will update you as the work progresses.
Thank you again on this superb service. Regards”
“ Good Evening.
I thought you might like to see some of the sheds in my garden that have been re-roofed with your lightweight tiles. In some of the pictures, you can see how use has been made of your eaves guard as a sill for the glazing units.
You have a first class product and I would recommend it, At 75 years old I was able to re-roof all of the sheds my self as they are so light and easy to use. As you can see there is one more shed to be done, and with a few leftovers from the other sheds, I was able to make a shelter for the robo mower!
A pleasure to do business with you all.
“ 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!”
“ Hi, if anyone is in any doubt about this product, please don't be. The tiles and associated finishing components we ordered to finish a new oak porch. They were delivered on time and were exactly what we were looking for. Big thanks to the team at Lightweight Tiles for all their valued assistance and tech advice.”
“ After coming across your product on eBay we then made an enquiry directly with your office.
I'd like to say, how fantastic and pleased I am with my new lightweight conservatory roof purchased from you.
We have insulated the roof with 50mm Kingspan inside and out, which has vastly improved its usability in cold weather (and I would think in hot weather also), and also made it much more visually appealing to the eye.
Thank you for your prompt service and delivery for a top class product.”
“ 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 was the first time we had used these tiles. The delivery arrived as promised.The project was to re roof a lean-to extension. The whole job went very well,the tiles fitted easily and the job was completed in one weekend.
Next job is a double garage roof and again we will use Lightweight Tiles.”
“ 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.”
“ Replacing my conservatory roof with your product was a considerable undertaking for me and my roofer who had not used the product before. Therefore I decided to visit you premises to check the light tiles out for myself and find out a little more about installation. I was greeted by Laura who was most helpful, answered all my questions and showed me some sample installations in you premises. From measurements and photographs I provided, Laura worked out a complete list of items required and provided a quotation.
In addition Laura emailed me with web links providing video clips of tile installation.
I was very pleased with the service and follow up emails. The tiles have arrived today as planned and I look forward to finding out how the installation goes over the next couple of weeks.

“ It was great! Thank you so much. So easy to use. ”
“ Found your company on ebay, I don't normally do reviews but in this case as the service and the product was exactly what it said on the tin.
From my first request, the quote, the order, delivery and the product everything was first class, highly recommended company.”
“ I found your company very helpful and professional. The lady I dealt with was very friendly and responded to my questions very quickly, this is one of the reasons I went with yourselves. ”
“ I installed this product over an existing asbestos cement garage roof so needed something light but robust as we have lots of rain and trees. Can I say this is a fantastic product which was easy to install as an amateur (after conquering my dislike for clambering on roofs) and the finished roof is transformational and all support timbers show no excessive load bearings.
I am extremely pleased with the product and would recommend these tiles very highly.”
“ I did my utility room and conservatory roof two years ago and was
so impressed with the product, service and final look, I knew the shed had
to be the same.”

“ We were very satisfied with your tiles, as they are really light and easy to install on small playhouses like the ones we are building, the client of our playhouse, a very famous Romanian TV-host, was also pleased by the final appearance of her son’s play home.”
“ Many thanks superb product made an excellent job of roof cheers and thanks again.”

“ We contacted Lightweight tiles to request information on the Product The staff we very helpful and we arranged a visit to inspect the product Having given them the sizes of the conservatory that we wanted to re roof, we received a quotation for all the product to do the job. We collected the product which was shrink wrapped very well Following the installation advice on the web site it took us just 15 hours to strip off the old roof and install the new one It was very east to cut and fit the tiles All finishing end strips fit very well Any competent DIY person can do this We would recommend the product to anyone wishing to roof or re-roof any building Special Thanks to all personal for their valued assistance all through the process.We even received a credit for the few tiles that we did not use.”
“ I thought you would like to know that I am extremely satisfied with your product. My two sons fitted this in 5 hours including striping off the old battens and felt. If you want to use the photo as a job finished please feel free to do so.”
“ Just a short email to thank you. Excellent service and a top product”
“ They look good and so far have resisted all the elements including torrential rain and and gale force winds. We are delighted with the results. And many thanks to Bruce for his very helpful advice and guidance.”
“ The materials a joy to work with, so long as you adhere to the fitting instructions on small planets website you can not go wrong. The tiles slot together effortlessly. And the overall finished job looks stunning. Shortly after I had finished the job the heavens opened with hail stones. I was stood in the conservatory and barely heard a thing. Thank you to all personal whom I spoke to when purchasing the materials. You were all very helpful. Looking forward to summer now in our transformed conservatory!”
“ We wanted a covered patio area and discovered the website. The tiles are light and were put up in just a few hours compared with a couple of days for concrete tiles. The infrastructure is a lot lighter and the whole project was completed far quicker than if we had used conventional tiles.
Result, very noticeable reduction in solar heating on sunny days, retains heat better when heated on cool days, and is much quieter, rain and road noise greatly reduced. Had a bit of a struggle with the Ubiflex, found it to be ‘floppier’ than traditional lead, more difficult to feed a long length into slot cut in mortar. Once in place, Ubiflex sealants worked well, and it was easy to mould the flashing to fit the tiles.”
