Aesthetic and protective
A roof is one of the most vital parts of your home or property, and forms a huge part of its aesthetic, as well as protecting your home from the elements.
Many kinds of roof tiles
Roof tiles come in many different shapes, sizes and materials. Which one you choose will depend on a number of factors, the style of your property, your location and your budget. It can also depend on the structure of your property and the design of your roof. If you live in a listed property or conservation area, you may have limitations on the sort of roof tiles you can opt for.
The best type of roof tile for you
We will be able to advise you on the best type of roof tile to best suit your property and your budget. You will need to balance the initial cost of the project with the durability and longevity of the material. For instance, slate or clay tiles are more expensive, but can last over 100 years. If you’re on a budget, you will need to factor in installation costs as well, as some tiles may be cheaper, but are more expensive to install than others.
An important investment
Interlocking tiles are more expensive to buy, but at about 11 tiles to the square metre, compared to around 60 for plain tiles, they are likely to work out cheaper overall, particularly for larger roof areas. Concrete tiles are amongst the cheapest, but they are susceptible to fading and won’t keep their good looks for long. Roofing a property is a big investment, so it makes sense to buy the best you can afford.
