What is meant by a pitched roof? Pitched or sloping roofs come in a variety of angles and depend on whether you’re considering a shed roof pitch or a pitched roof on a garage. Pitched roofs tend to range from 5° to 90° angles with anything below 12° being considered a low pitch.
Which type of tile is best for a roof? This depends on what your needs are. For example, concrete tiles provide a cost-effective option and stand up well against severe weather conditions, while clay provides a beautiful natural look and weighs less even after experiencing heavy rainfall. Slate tiles are incredibly durable and environmentally friendly, however, are heavy so the roof deck will need to be reinforced before slate tiles are applied.
Are roof tiles cheaper than slates? Roof tiles are generally cheaper per square metre than slate tiles because they are created rather than mined.
What are the main products of pitched roofing? Our range of roofing tiles comprises plain concrete, profile concrete, clay plain, and profile clay roof tiles. Plain and profile both work well depending on the environment in which they’re laid – for helpful guidance on choosing the right tile for a low-pitched roof, check out our product guides today.
