Redland 49 15 x 9 Concrete Interlocking Roof Tiles

Redland 49 concrete interlocking roof tiles have defined the roofscapes of London and the South East for over half a century, with its unique camber adding both strength and aesthetic appeal.

Originally designed as a solution to the massive demand for roof tiles following the Second World War: There was an urgent need for an economical roof tile that was light, quick and easy to lay, and so the Redland 49 was produced.

Over 60 years later it is still one of the best selling roof tiles available - and for all the reasons that it was originally designed!

The Redland 49 Roof Tiles are an extremely economical choice of roofing material, with a small format offering a light weight and a tile that is easy to handle and install.
