Why Lightweight Roof Tiles Are Your Best Bet
The use of lightweight roof tiles rather than traditional clay ones can help save time and money, while also being an environmentally friendly option.
Lightweight tiles tend to be quicker to install, and this saves on labour time and costs. Because more of them fit in a single truckload than regular roofing tiles, larger amounts can be transported to a site more quickly, reducing fuel and labour expenses, and cutting down on carbon emissions.
You should find you need fewer of these roofing tiles to cover a roof, and this also saves you money. Modern lightweight tiles are available in sleet, concrete or slate, and are very versatile for use on a wide range of commercial and residential building projects. You can get these tiles, sometimes weighing less than 8lb per square foot, in a range of colours.
They tend to be easier to handle than traditional materials, so they are very safe, particularly when working at height. Long-lasting lightweight roof tiles combine the elegance and distinctive appearance of their heavier counterparts with the convenience you’d expect from a modern product. They are low-maintenance, fully fireproof, and resistant to UV rays, wind, rain and hail.
Equally, these lightweight roofing materials are also tough enough to withstand the problem of vandalism, increasingly an issue across the construction industry. Look online for more details about lightweight roof tiles – and make sure yours come fully guaranteed with a warranty.
