Why use Slate and Tile Roofing for your Clay Tile Roof?

Our Clay Tile Roof installations are second to none but we go one step further than the rest.

  • Each and every time you get a roof underlay of the highest quality available. You will find many contractors not using any roof underlay as building code says it is not required above 25 degrees!!! In our opinion the roof underlay is a secondary barrier and should always be installed.
  • On replacement roofs old battens are removed and new battens installed, again many of the cheaper prices will be because old battens are not removed.
  • If you have valley trays on your roof are they getting replaced? Our price includes this.
  • What finish do you expect? Again we do believe we deliver a finish that is not surpassed by any other contractor. We use all the best materials with the best installation techniques.

These are just a few points to consider if you are looking for a roof replacement or new roof installation.

Clay Tile Roof Craftsman

Tiling is more than just laying tiles, its about bringing the design to life. If your roof is poorly finished, then your building suffers, regardless of how much effort you have put into its design. The roof is an essential element of the design and you need a roofing contractor that cares about the finish. You also need a Clay Tile Roofing contractor that is capable of flashing installation and unfortunately many are not, flashings are a major part of any roof as they are installed between where two roof faces meet and will have water channelled into this area so they need to be watertight and not reliant on a mastic for weather proofing. If you want the right Clay Tile Roofing contractor for your roof speak to us and allow us to demonstrate how we can ensure your roof is safe in our hands. Please view my gallery for examples of lead welded flashings.

Clay roof tiles

We work with every major manufacturer to ensure the best material is used for your chosen roofing challenge. There are many different types of tile, the most common are listed below:

Interlocking Tiles

Interlocking single lap tiles quite often provide the most economic choice when deciding what to put on a pitched roof but even then there is a wide variety of tiles, prices and manufacturers to choose from. They are available in all materials and have many different profiles i.e. double roman, flat format etc.

Plain Tiles

Plain tiles provide an alternative covering for roofs over 30 degree pitch, each with a range of colours. For a rich textured roof and greater design detail capability then plain tiles still lead the way.
