SLATE & TILE ROOFS 

 
Most traditionally built roofs in the UK are covered in roof tiles or slate. There are many different varieties available, the most common of which fall into one the catergories below: 

Roof Tiles 

Clay tiles 
Clay has been used to produce roof tiles for hundreds of years. Clay tiles provide a durable, long lasting and aesthetically appealing roof covering on homes and comericial buildings. 
 
Clay tiles are available in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes so you can change the look of your building to suit your taste. 
 
As with all roof coverings it is important to check that the style of clay tile you choose is suitable for the building structure and location. 
 
Concrete tiles 
Concrete tiles are an alternative to clay tiles and come in a wide variety of styles to suit most applications. Concrete tiles are usually lighter than their clay counterparts and are often less prone to cracking in colder weather. 

Roof Slates 

Natural Slate 
Natural slate tiles originate from quarries from many locations all over the world. As slate is a natural product each quary will produce slates with a unique colour, pattern and texture. 
 
Natural slate is known for its resistance to everyday wear and tear and is a popular choice to provide a traditional luxury look to a building
 
Artificial Slate 
A popular alternative to natural slate, artificial slates are manufactured to mimic natural slate without the enivormental impact of excavating natural materials from the ground. 
 
Most artificial slates are manufactured from fibre cement and are available in a wide range of colours and patterns to give a similar appearance as natural slate.
