Things to consider

The type and colour of the tiles can enhance or spoil the appearance of the house. If you live in a terraced or semi-detached property, consider the covering of the neighbouring roof, which can affect the overall appearance of your roof.

Slate Roofs

Slate - actual shingle-like slivers of rock - is a roofing material that is more prevalent on upmarket homes. Although slate is an expensive choice, it offers a very natural look and can be laid out in a variety of patterns.

The benefits of a slate roof are:

  • a very long lifespan
  • good fire protection
  • low maintenance
  • invulnerably to rot and insects

Tiled Roofs

Tile is a good choice for homes with a modern, clean look. The main benefit of a tiled roof is that it lasts a long time - its expected lifespan is greater than the lifespan of the material on which the roofing rests. Tile won't rot or burn, and it can't be harmed by insects. It requires little maintenance, and comes in a variety of colours, types, styles and brands.

Previously the biggest drawback to tile was its weight, depending on the material used to make it. Tile can be very heavy. However, lightweight tiles are now available which removes the requirement of additional supports.
