Our lightweight, eco-friendly roofing system is truly unique, the tiles slot together and are laid in a similar way to traditional tiles.There are five different components, the Ridge Tile, the Ridge End Cap, the Left and Right Dry Verge and the Pan Tile that all work together, in kit form, to produce a well-made Lightweight Roof.
These un-granulated tiles have a smooth finish and a UV additive included in their production (making them UV stable). These lower cost red tiles are great for using to convert shed or garden building roofs as they are hard wearing. They are lighter in weight than the granulated version and also cheaper (that is why we call it the Budget Tile).
Please note the colours may appear slightly differently online than the true to life, if you're unsure on the colours why not order our sample pack here.
Our tiles are quick and easy to install and previous Roofing experience is not essential. See our Installation Guidelines for more info.
“ 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.”
