Lightweight Roof Tiles

Tapco Slate

For centuries, slate roofing has been desired for its durability and beauty. With authentic surfaces and edges, TapcoSlate highlights the handsome character of slate, at the same time enhancing roof performance through innovation.

TapcoSlate gives you the power to evoke both historical elegance and outstanding modern-day style. Our slates are created with moulds cast from real slate to capture genuine peaks, plateaux and curves. Colour-through design and UV stabilisation ensure “stay-true” richness for traditional colours such as Pewter Grey and Plum, bold tones like Brick Red and unique selections such as Chestnut Brown and Grey/Black blended tiles. Unlike natural slate, TapcoSlate won’t break or delaminate.

Transform Your Conservatory

For years our customers have complained that their old conservatory is; too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter and too noisy when it rains - meaning they get very little use out of what has often been a very expensive addition to their property. For these reasons we have always steered away from polycarbonate roofing. This fantastic new lightweight product allows us to transform your conservatory with an insulated conservatory roof which keeps the conservatory warmer in winter (all year round), cooler in the summer (5 days a year) and quieter when its raining (the other 360 days).  This gives you a room which can be used all year round without compromising the structure of the existing conservatory and is far cheaper than paying new conservatory prices or demolishing the conservatory and building an extension.
