what makes our lightweight tiles roofing system so unique? 


LightWeight Tiles Ltd manufacture and distribute our own lightweight roofing system, to the highest standard, and pride ourselves on our attention to detail. Our recycled roofing tiles are made here in the UK by our family run business, and we have been producing and distributing our LightWeight roofing system for many years throughout the UK and Europe.


On a regular basis we have had customers thinking our tiles are the traditional style on a metal form pan tile...THIS IS NOT THE CASE! Please read more to find out what our products are made of and why they are so unique. 


What makes our products so unique?

What makes our products so unique is the fact they are made from polypropylene many of the advantages in using this material are well worth considering a choice of which roofing to use they can also be recycled, making them a brilliant, eco-friendly option. All our tiles are guaranteed for 25 years. From the numerous amounts of regular positive feedback, we get is that no special equipment needs to be used for cutting or bending as our tiles can simply be cut with a disc grinder or hand saw, there are no dangerous sharp edges or opportunities for rusting unlike metal tiles.

Furthermore, as we all become more conscious about our environment it's great to know that we have a roofing product that can be recycled, and that a percentage of the core material is made from recycled plastic. The strength of this material is very impressive its usage in the car and lorry industry for bumpers and car panels etc is a true quality and strength endorsement.

That's right! Our tiles are a recycled plastic pan tile...not metal!

This is how are Tiles begin...
