Our roof tiles are available in concrete, clay, and slate so you have the right material you need for the job. There are many different factors to consider when choosing roof tiles, but for an inexpensive covering that requires minimal maintenance two of the most popular options are clay and concrete, Meanwhile natural slate is very tasteful and metal roof tiles boast a long lifespan.
Clay roof tiles are extremely popular and have been used for thousands of years. They are commonly used because they look good and provide strong protection from the elements. Having an absorption rate of only 6% means they take in less water than their concrete counterparts and are able to remain lightweight.
Concrete roof tiles are domineering the UK market, having seen a surge in popularity over the past 50 years. Concrete tiles adapt well and their lower price point makes them attractive, especially to developers. You can expect the lifespan of a concrete tile to be anywhere in the region of 50-60 years, however, they are much heavier than clay tiles. Using concrete tiles will give you a low-maintenance finish, these tiles also boast fire resistance which will reduce the damage a fire could do to your property.
Natural slate roof tiles are authentic in appearance, followed by its extreme durability, with experts believing a well-maintained slate roof can last up to 150 years. Slate roof tiles are extremely heavy and the roof deck will need to be reinforced before they can be applied but are environmentally friendly that produce very little waste as used slate can often be repurposed.
