Lightweight sheet is roofing solution

NEED a traditional roofing look, but without the hefty weight of concrete, clay or slate?

The TerraPlegel sand-faced sheet can be used to cover an area of roof with only about 10-15% of the weight loading associated with concrete tiling, says supplier Link Build Products.

That lower weight also means less need for high cost structural support underneath.

Available in lengths up to 4.27m (14ft) and in 1m (3ft 3in) widths, the TerraPlegel sheeting is priced at £12.73/sq m (£1.18/sq ft). Stock colours are slate black or terracotta with other colours to order (01734-404965).
