How LightWeight Tiles can be placed over the top of your existing roof.
Did you know there's no need to take off your old roof when using Lightweight tiles?
Our tiles only weigh 6kgs per meter square, this means they are light enough to go over the top of the existing roof. Even when we are lucky enough to have snow our tiles won't make a difference to the weight.
This customer explains in his testimonial the weight with snow/ice not being an issue. Please read to find out more.
Below is a video of our tiles being fitted over the top of a customers existing glass conservatory roof.
the customer was happy to leave a TESTIMONIAL for us. here is what he said:

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, 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.
