Tegola's black asphalt shingle looks like slates and a special kiln firing process ensures a fade free appearance. Tegola weigh only 10.5gs/m2, a quarter of the weight of concrete tiles, and this produced economies in the support structure, which with their economic price led to significant savings.
Tegola shingles have an excellent life span as they are stronger than the British Standard requirements, have a design life of 35 years and have a top fire rating.
