A Guide to Tapco Tiles

A tiled conservatory roof is a great addition to any home; as well as providing an elegant look, it also offers exceptional durability and temperature control. If you’re looking to replace your existing conservatory roof with a tiled alternative, opting for high-quality tiles is essential if you’d like to ensure that your new roof will stand the test of time.

With so many different tile suppliers, it can be tricky to know which brands you can rely on. Here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions, we install bespoke conservatory roofs that are constructed using Tapco tiles. If you’re unfamiliar with this company, we’ve created this guide to Tapco tiles.

The history of Tapco tiles

Tapco tiles are manufactured by Tapco Roofing Products, which is part of Westlake Tapco Europe. This esteemed company is a leading figure in the building materials industry and began life in 1961 when they first introduced their portable metal bending machine to the market. Over the years, they’ve refined their offerings and now offer some of the most innovative roofing products on the market, including TapcoSlate Classic tiles. With six high-volume manufacturing plants across the continent, their products are massively in demand, with millions of units produced each year.


Why use Tapco tiles?

Here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions, we use Tapco tiles in all of our conservatory roof installations – and for good reason! This innovative product is constructed from recyclable virgin limestone and polypropylene and offers a whole host of benefits to any property, including:

  • Lightweight: Once installed, Tapco tiles achieve an incredibly low weight of 12kg/m², making them much lighter than concrete, slate or clay alternatives. This means you’ll have the best of both worlds, with a strong, solid roof that offers exceptional durability while remaining lightweight. 
  • Slate finish: By using a state-of-the-art moulding process, Tapco tiles can imitate the look of authentic slate for a fraction of the price. As colour is gradually blended in during formation, this creates a more natural shade that is almost indistinguishable from actual slate. 
  • Durable: Accidents happen but, thanks to their robust nature, if Tapco tiles are dropped or walked on then you’ve got peace of mind that they won’t crack, split or break.  
  • Energy efficient: Unlike polycarbonate alternatives, Tapco tiles boast great thermal retention, which will help boost the energy efficiency of your conservatory. Once installed, your tiled conservatory roof from Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions will achieve an uncommonly low U-value of just 0.15W/m²K. 
  • 40-year warranty: To provide you with ultimate peace of mind, Tapco offers a 40-year warranty on their tiles so you can be sure you’re receiving a hardwearing and durable product. 
  • BBA approved: All Tapco tiles are BBA approved and CE marked; this means that they’ve been comprehensively tested to ensure they can withstand even the most extreme weather conditions.


How do we use Tapco tiles?

Here at Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions, we build solid conservatory roofs from scratch entirely on-site. Once we’ve removed your existing conservatory roof, we’ll construct a bespoke timber framework that is tailored to your exact measurements. Then, several layers of insulation will be installed before being covered by plasterboard. Tapco tiles then act as the finishing layer and – with pre-marked nailing and exposure guides and no sorting, clipping or drilling before roof loading – they couldn’t be any easier to install.
