What different materials can you find in the About Roofing tiles range?

There are lots of different materials that roof tiles are made from, giving our customers a great variety of choices depending on what they hope to achieve from their roofing project. Each roof tile material has different benefits and aesthetics - let’s take a closer look at some of them.

Slate roof tiles

Slate roof tiles are a popular choice and have been used for many decades. They are sturdy and durable, and if the roof is looked after well, they can last for over 150 years. Slate roof tiles are also popular because they create a pleasing, smart, clean look, while still allowing for variation which many people admire. While some people prefer to stick to traditional slate tiles, there are also more contemporary versions available which are made from recycled or artificial slate, therefore being a greener option while not compromising on the attractive appearance of a natural slate roof.


Clay roof tiles

Clay roof tiles are coveted because of their appealing red hue, which makes them a popular choice of roof tile both in the UK and across Europe. Clay tiles are still very hard-wearing, but the finished appearance is more traditional. While the natural reddish glow of clay tiles is what many people desire, there are also other options these days, and a range of coloured clay tiles can now be manufactured so customers can pick the perfect shade for their home.

Clay tiles tend to give a more uniform appearance as the tiles are very similar in shape and shade and so for those who prefer a more consistent look, clay tiles can be the preferred option.


Concrete roof tiles

Concrete roof tiles offer customers a vast range of choice. You can select concrete roof tiles in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and colours so for those who have a precise look they wish to achieve, the wide selection of concrete roof tiles available can be very appealing. Concrete roof tiles are durable, though perhaps not as much as their slate counterparts, and a quality concrete roof should last over 60 years. Other benefits of concrete roof tiles, however, are that they are highly resistant to fire, moisture and insects making them one of the safest choices of tile for your roof and combine practicality and style making them a tempting option.


Metal roof tiles

Metal roof tiles are unusual, yet are becoming an increasingly in-demand option for modern home and business owners. The benefits of a metal roof tile include being extremely low maintenance (high-quality metal roof tiles are resistant to mold and mildew), and being extremely lightweight means they are also easier to transport and affix - meaning the job of building your new roof just got a lot easier.

Another significant benefit of the metal roof tile is that it is great value, and can be manufactured to look like a clay, or concrete or slate roof tile. So customers on a budget can still obtain the look of their dream roof quickly and in a cost-effective manner.

What are different tile shapes available in the About Roofing range?

Tiles come in a broad selection of shapes, so customers have a wide range of choice to ensure the finished look of their roof is exactly what they had in mind. Each of our exceptional branded tiles come in a number of different designs so our customers can choose ones that are right for them.

Pantile roof tiles

Pantile roof tiles can create a smart and interesting look. They are an S shape and have been used on UK roofs for over 500 years. The ’S’ shape of these tiles means they slot next to one another smoothly, which creates a visually appealing finish that pleases the eye. Pantile shaped roof tiles can be found in a wide range of materials on our website.


Plain roof tiles

Plain roof tiles work well for those who prefer a no-fuss but still smart appearance for their building project. Plain roof tiles are extremely versatile and can be produced in a number of different colours to suit individual tastes. The main benefit of the plain tile shape is its flexibility as it can be used to create a simple non-flashy look, yet, with a bit of creativity, can also be manipulated to create something far more spectacular.


Double roman roof tiles

Double roman roof tiles are also understated, however, they have an additional round roll that appears down the middle of the tile. The Double Roman roof tile is another popular choice in the UK and gives a traditional yet attractive look.


How are roof tiles affixed to the roof?

There are different methods that can be used to create a new roof. Traditionally a roof tile is hung from the framework of the roof, and each overlaps the tile below it to ensure that the roof is weatherproof upon completion. This is done by inserting nails into the roof frame and hanging each tile from it.

Thanks to advancements in technology, more contemporary methods are now available, which can make your roof tiles even more secure and impenetrable. Interlocking roof tiles is another smart choice where roof tiles all interlock together, providing extra security and safety for your home.

Roof tile clips are also sometimes used, which make sure that the roofing tiles are fixed to the roof correctly and securely and prevent any annoying slips or breakages when severe weather or other stressful circumstances strike our roof.
