LockDown Hot Tub shelter

Underside of Lean to roof3

So, during the current pandemic we decided to build a hot tub shelter so we could enjoy our hot tub in all weathers. 

Living in England we dont always have the best weather, so what better than a lightweight roofing system? 

We decided we'd like to keep some light coming in so we used lightweight tiles in the Opaque  to create this perfect little window alongside the Budget Black Smooth Tiles

Decking board facia

Sat in the Hot Tub looking up at the tiles was not very pleasing so we decided to do something a little different...see the below image.

We have been able to enjoy the hot tub in the sun and even the pouring rain thanks to these tiles. The little window allows just the right amount of light through as well.

We decided to add an extra side with a window on so that we could enjoy the sunset in the evening without the wind. Below is the finish shelter.

We have really enjoyed being able to use the hot tub in all weather conditions. The sun light window we have by using the Opaque tiles really does keep it warm in the colder weather as it allows the sun to shine through. 


We have used the hot tub in Rain, Sun and even in the snow :) 


We used a decking board to finish the front of the pent roof shelter as lightweight tiles do not manufacture a component for this at the moment. We sealed it with a water tight sealant and we have not had any issues with the rain coming in. 


Perfect and enjoyable! 

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.
