These shed conversions have been done using our smooth black budget tiles.  The reason they are labelled our smooth black ‘budget’ tiles is all down to the cheaper price tag. They have the same efficiency as the granulated tiles.

Above this garage roof is completed in our second most popular granulated colour being our autumn brown. Again this customer has gone over the top of the existing roof using the battens on top and then installing our tiles.

 

Our LightWeight Roofing System can be used for most roof structures. Such as Sheds, Summerhouses, Garages, House Porches, Conservatories, Extension, Gazebos and many more. So, if you have a roof conversion with a recommended minimum pitch of 10 degrees, have you thought about using us?  

Why not convert your old tired garage or shed roof with our LightWeight Tiles giving it a new lease of life? 

You can use our lightweight roofing system over the top of your existing roof. All you need to do is fix down the recommended size battens being 2” X 1” and then if you really wanted to you could insulate the roof as well but this is not essential on a garage or shed roof. You would then start the installation of our tiles and fix them down using our plastic-coated colour coded fixing screws. Alternatively, you can remove the felt or existing roof you have on your shed or garage and then rebuild the roof trusses and then secure down the recommended battens before installing our lightweight tiles roofing system.

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.
