Roofshield is welcomed by the NHBC and due to its high performance levels, it reduces the requirement of additional ventilation materials being added into the roof design, saving time and money

Concrete Roof Tiles

Concrete Roof Tiles

For years the roof’s of the UK have predominately been covered in concrete roof tiles. These were first made by Redland and Marley in the 1920’s when there was a shortage of clay tiles. Both brands are still well known today.

Although the Sandtoft Company was founded first, they didn’t enter the Concrete Roofing Market until 1956. Sandtoft, like Redland and Marley now belong to large European companies, Wienerberger, Monier and Eternit respectively.

CLAY ROOF TILES

CLAY ROOF TILES

Ever since the 13th century, clay roof tiles have added a tapestry of rich colours, shapes and shades to both the rural and urban built environment.

Clay roof tiles have played a significant role in the historical development of architecture. The Romans were the first to make and use fired clay tile roofing in this country. By the 18th century, tiles had become the standard roof covering wherever there was an abundant local supply of suitable raw materials, a source of fuel and a thriving craft tradition. The production of clay tiles began as a very small scale industry, with many districts having only one source of supply. Over time, roofers developed their own construction detailing and distinctive methods of laying roofs that provided their neighbourhoods with a distinctive local appearance and an indigenous form of building.

Clay tiles in the 21st century have evolved, modern technology and European patterns have entered the UK Market but the traditional look is still in abundance!
