Recycled self-bonding, rubber roof tile, price per square metre


£45.60


Our recycled rubber roofing tiles are grey colour (the tiles vary slightly in colour from tile to tile in order to give a more natural look to them when fitted),  this tile effect looking slate is self bonding and has the unique flexibility to be used for all valleys and ridges. There is never a need for custom-made accessories because every slate can be cut and set to any angle or size you need.
Another unique advantage that distinguishes these slates from any other synthetic slate on the market is that they have a built-in adhesive that allows them to bond together once fully installed. The benefit of this process gives you a stronger, more pliable solid membrane that leaves you with a better insulated roof.
The installation process is very basic as the tiles are fitted straight onto roof, no roof battens are required, a non-perforated asphalt saturated felt underlay and then nailed down in two places using the relevant size copper, stainless steel or hot-dipped galvanised nails: it’s that simple.
Over a period of time the slate will self-bond together forming a solid membrane on your roof. This process has no specific timescale as it relies on sunlight, and therefore bonds faster during the summer months than the winter months. This process makes the installation much more cost effective as it takes less than half the time to install than traditional slate, all without any damage or breakages and problems associated with real slate tiles.
