PREFA tile-effect roofs combine the familiar appearance of tiled roofs with the unbeatable advantages of aluminium roofs. Get inspired here!
Your roof is exposed to the elements more than any other part of your house. Roof coverings come in many types: clay, metal, fibre cement or bitumen. All of them must provide reliable protection against wind and weather conditions for decades. If you are renovating and decide to install a traditional tile roof, ask yourself: will your outdated roof structure need to be reinforced in order to bear the weight of the tiles?
The benefit: PREFA roofs are extremely light!
PREFA roof tiles offer a considerably lower weight compared to conventional roof tiles. At only 2.3 kg/m², PREFA roof coverings will offer your house reliable protection. No matter if the temperature plummets by 30°C overnight or if 90 mph winds are battering the house – PREFA roof tiles will stay put and do their job without letting you down.
