We have had a couple of people mention that the natural lighting may be being lost when using LightWeight tiles...This is not the case. Our tiles can be used and still have as much natural light as any other conservatory roof :) 

Our tiles can work in conjunction with Velux windows, sky lights, this also allows extra lighting through.

As you can see from the above images lights have been fitted but can you see how much natural light is still coming even with those lights turned off? No sky light windows have been fitted to allow for extra lighting. 

These images were also taken on a not so good day and still the lighting is amazing in the conservatory. Don't you agree?? 

If you were concerned about losing too much natural light, we have an Opaque tile which you can stagger in between your preferred chosen colour this allows 50% light through. Alternatively, you can install a Velux window using the flashing kit that comes with it. All you need to do is install the window and then cut our LightWeight Tiles to butt up against the Velux window flashing kit. This will then hide any cuts you may have had to make.

You can also install sky light windows. 

Little spot lights have become quite popular when installing lightweight tiles to complete the inside of the conservatory. It adds a little touch.

As you can see from the above two images the little spot lights inside the conservatory really complete the finished internal look. It makes it more modern. And still you have got natural lighting coming into your conservatory. So, when the sun is shining you can still sit in your conservatory and enjoy the sunshine without the sun blinding you. 

 

When using Velux windows with our tiles the natural light is still able to shine through :) Below are two images of a recent installation of our LightWeight Roofing System with the installation of Velux windows.

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!
