Nationwide distributor of roof glazing solutions, LB Supplies, has added two new innovative products to its offering, helping customers make the most of the popular solid conservatory roof trend.
Specialising in roof windows, skylights, roof lanterns, sun tunnels and all the related accessories, the company has now launched two new lightweight roof tiles, the Ebury Lite Roof Shingle, a high-performance textured tile, and Ebury Plus Roof Tile, manufactured from 100% recyclable materials.
Lightweight yet robust, the Ebury Lite Roof Shingle is an advanced tiling solution, combining the sought-after aesthetics of the traditional low-profile shingles with exceptional weather performance and long lasting resistance. Its durable UV-resistant coating prevents the delamination and general deterioration that is usually associated with other products of this kind. The new shingle is 100% waterproof and capable of withstanding hurricane-force winds up to 120mph, eliminating issues such as lifting.
The Ebury Lite shingle also brings significant advantages over other similar products on the market. Many tiling solutions are made using inferior quartz stone, liable to fade, and deemed unfit for roofing purposes by one of the country’s biggest manufacturers of coloured granules. The Ebury Lite shingle, by contrast, is made with natural coloured stone that never loses its original colour.
Not only does the shingle come with a 50-year warranty, including a 20-year coating warranty, but it also features 35% more basecoat, stone and over-glaze than its main competitor, making it a lot more resistant to scratches and general wear and tear. The Ebury Lite shingle is also the only product of its kind with Local Authority Building Control (LABC) approval.
LB Supplies sales director, Adrian Cooper, commented: “In recent years, we’ve seen the market wake up to the huge advantages offered by solid roof conservatories – increased thermal efficiency, lower heating bills, and, above all, year-round usability thanks to tiling that retains heat in the winter and reduces the intake of sunlight in the summer.”
“With Ebury Lite Roof Shingle, we’re proud to offer a product that’s at the pinnacle of modern conservatory roofing, and enables our installer clients to differentiate their offer as traditional conservatories decline, and consumer tastes become increasingly complex.”
The company is now also offering the Ebury Plus Lightweight Roof Tiles as part of its trademark commitment to maximising customer choice. The tile is exceptionally easy to install, and can be fastened either by hand or by the use of a simple pneumatic nail gun. “Our ultimate aim is to become the one-stop-shop for ‘all things roofing’ and, to achieve that goal, we constantly strive to widen the selection of products we can offer,” concluded Adrian.
