Pitched Roofing Experts

There are many different elements to consider when it comes to choosing the right covering for your roof.

The pitch of your roof is a huge factor in choosing the correct covering. Some tiles and slates become ineffective when the pitch becomes too shallow and will cause your roof to leak.

There are specific tiles that will go down to a shallow pitch and our staff will be able to advise you on this.

Weight is also a factor. The roof structure needs to be strong enough to take the weight of the new covering. If this is a new build, this will have been designed by a qualified structural engineer but if it is a ‘Re-Roof’, you have to be careful about what you use.

There are three commonly used types of materials used. These are:

  1. Slate
  2. Concrete
  3. Clay

Not so commonly used would be soft metal. This type of product is good for shallow pitches and can be used as a lightweight alternative.
