Tiles roofs to last decades 

If you are considering having a tiled roof then you will need to take the state of your current roof into account. Tiles are a heavy material and your roof will need a proper structure to hold the tiles. If you need to re-roof an existing tiled roof then the chances are that it already has sufficient support.

Macclesfield Roofing know that quality materials are critical to a roof

We use top suppliers of concrete and clay roof tiles such as marley and redland. We can also handle any work your tiled roof may require- no matter the size of the job we can help you from the replacement of missing tiles or any bigger projects.

Clay

  • Clay tile roofing is the one of the oldest and the most popular materials in the world. A well maintained clay roof can last over a hundred years.
  • It is a highly durable tile and flexible as it comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. The material is also resistant to mold and rot, as well as withstanding gale force winds.
  • Its reflective properties can help make heating and cooling systems more efficient, and doesn’t contract or expand in hot and cold temperatures.
  • Roof fitters should ensure that the structure is strong enough to support the weight of the clay tiles, especially if you are installing a new roof on existing support beams and changing materials to clay tiles. Extra support beams may need to be installed to withstand the weight.
  • Clay tiles will probably never need to be replaced once fitted.

Concrete

  • Concrete tiles have similar properties and advantages as the clay counterparts, and is a substitute for clay.
  • This is a popular choice for modern properties as well as being strong and able to withstand harsh climates.
  • Low maintenance is required once the tiles have been installed, albeit correctly.
  • If any adjustments to a section of the roof is carried out such as installing a skylight or replacing a broken tile, then only tiles around that area need to be removed.
  • Tiles are fire resistant and manufactured in a wide choice of colours for the customer to choose from.

Plastic Tiles

  • These are the latest edition to join the tile product range.
  • Plastic roof tiles are lightweight, tough and durable. They are also easy to shape and manufacture with a wide choice of colours produced on the market.
  • They are constructed using hardwearing polycarbonate materials, usually from recycled items and produced in uniformed moulds.
  • Tiles can be easily cut and shaped to fit the roof area.
