Now you can use your roof to protect against pollution
Reducing the impact of harmful pollution seeping into the home has never been more important. Numerous studies show that exposure to exhaust fumes and toxins in the atmosphere can have a negative impact on long-term wellbeing.
The good news is that you can take action to significantly improve indoor air quality and health.
How Pollution Eating Roof tiles work
The Noreus team already offers a complete roofing solution as part of our loft and roof insulation services.
We know that poorly maintained roofs are a major cause of heat loss so that’s why we offer a one-stop shop for homeowners wanting to fix leaks and broken tiles.
In fact you can ask us for a free roof survey – just to make sure your roof is working as well as it should be.
Did you also know that we can also fit roof tiles with a photocatalytic coating to combat pollution? By swapping standard impassive tiles for a roof that actively purifies the air, you’ll be doing a big favour to yourself and the environment around you.
What is photocatalysis? Quite simply, it is the acceleration of a chemical reaction by light. Titanium dioxide on the tiles is stimulated by sunlight and removes harmful nitrogen oxides, which are then washed away from the roof’s surface by rainwater. A roof coated entirely with titanium dioxide could neutralise the emissions from 11,000 car miles over a period of one year.
Our tiles are also manufactured using 50% recycled materials – making it a highly sustainable roofing product that achieves an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification.
Even better still, these gases are converted into a neutralised calcium nitrate which in turn can be used as a fertiliser on the garden. How clever is that?

.......... and since we only had mains electricity power laid on at the bungalow, our hot water had always cost us a fortune using the immersion heater. The Solar Thermal system you installed - especially the twin cylinder layout - means that we don't waste any available power and the running costs of the system are minimal. And we have got hot water! Thank you also for installing the battery backup system to get us over power cuts that we get!
