Mr Monks LightWeight Tiles case study

Here is what mr monk had to say about our lightweight roofing system.

The conservatory internally was just ship lapped, nothing else in between the polycarb, which were attached to the existing conservatory frame with self-drilling screws.

All the old Polly carb roof is still in place as is a pair of scissors I used to cut the insulation. Dropped them and couldn't find them. I wasn't going to remove all the insulation just to find them. Lol

Also in all it took 6 days to complete and all the work I did on my own

Thank for all your help. We are really pleased with the outcome. Just can't wait for winter now when we can still use it.

4 weeks on.. The conservatory has been used constantly even in this heatwave.. something we wouldn't be able to do before, other than cook bread..

The conservatory has been the best place to watch the world cup (the roof has been a game changer. Lol) 

Regards

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.
