We supply concrete plain roof tiles & concrete interlocking roof tiles from Sandtoft, Marley & Redland: Economical & ever popular for a good reason - they are easy to lay & enable the construction of a roof with the minimum of cost & effort. Clay plain roof tiles are the best solution where character and looks are more important than price: There are broadly three types: Machine made clay plain tiles by Marley Eternit, Redland & Sandtoft, which are mass produced for a clean contemparary appearance - these are the roof covering of choice on most new build developments as the major house builders appreciate what a great feature a clay roof makes on a property and how they increase the visual appeal. Hand crafted clay plain tiles by Marley Eternit, Redland & Sandtoft are similar to machine made clay tiles, but with an element of hand finishing during the manufacturing process they offer a similar look to rustic handmade clay plain tiles at a significant cost saving. Hand made clay plain tiles by manufacturers such as Sandtoft Goxhill, Keymer & Tudor represent the ultimate roof tile - each tile is literally hand made by a British craftsman for a premium unique roof covering that will add character & distinction.
We also supply clay interlocking tiles such as the Sandtoft 20/20 with its ability to be installed in a roof pitch as low as 15 degrees - ideal for single storey & mono pitch extensions.
We also offer quality Spanish, Canadian & Brazilian natural slates: Sourced from established, respected sources with manufacturer backed guarantees: We aim to buck the trend for supplying "cheap" slates by offering quality slates that can be installed with confidence.
We stock & supply Cembrit Jutland man made slates - these are a popular alternative to natural slates where light weight & price are important considerations, as well as a clean, modern almost minimalist aesthetic.
Of course there is much more to a roof than roof tiles & roof slates: Breathable membranes such as Tyvek Supro & Cromar Vent 3, Flexim roof repair putty, Manthorpe, About Roofing & Klober Dry Fix Verge & Dry Fix Ridge systems, Cromar Renocoat Roof Tile Paint, clay chimney pots & flues including the Brewer UFO Cowl range, the Brewer Birdguard range & the C Caps Chimney Capper - we stock them all, and much more!
Whilst SBS torch on roofing felts & traditional pour & roll roofing felts from manufacturers such as Chesterfelt remain popular there is an increasing move towards modern alternatives such as the Cure It GRP Fibreglass roofing system which offers ease of installation with a 20 year guarantee: We have large stocks of both ranges.
For both small or large roof repairs Cromapol Acrylic Waterproof Roof coating remains popular, and we also have large stocks of related products such as Solar Reflective Paint & Roofing Felt Primer.

We also supply a range of lead alternatives - products that look similar to lead, are installed in a similar way, perform in a similar way but are much cheaper, & subsequently are unlikely to be stolen - unlike lead - as they have zero scrap value.
