The roof is the most important part of any property, especially in the UK, where it rains an average of 150+ days a year. Without a high-quality roof in place, over time, water will start to make its way inside your property.
If left unnoticed, it can lead to the build-up of toxic mould and structural damage, which are expensive to repair. To avoid such unfortunate scenarios in the future, it all starts with the roofing tiles you choose. From fibre cement and clay to standard concrete, we stock over 700 roof tiles designed for every need, look, and budget.
Roof Tile Materials
Roof tiles can be made from many different materials. The roof tiles that you will come across on this page are made out of one of the following materials:
Clay has been used to create roof tiles for thousands of years and remains a popular choice amongst property owners in the UK. This is because roofing options in the likes of the Spicer Clay Roof Tiles not only look good, but they are extremely durable and require very little maintenance.
In fact, they are so long-lasting that archaeologists often come across whole clay roof tiles, which happen to be one of the only remains left of ancient buildings. And although clay tiles will cost you more upfront, just because they last so long makes them one of the most cost-effective options in the long run.
British property owners have used concrete roof tiles for over a century, and it's easy to see why. Concrete tiles are strong, durable, and long-lasting. They are prone to chips and cracks, which are commonly caused by falling branches, debris, or hail, minimising the need for having to replace broken or damaged roof tiles in the future.
In many cases (depending on quality, brand, and shape), concrete roof tiles can last for up to 50 years, meaning that most homeowners will likely only have to repair the roof of their property once during their lifetime. One such example are the Marley concrete roof tiles. What’s more is that concrete tiles tend to be a more cost-effective option, making them a great choice over their clay counterparts.
Roof Tile Types
From eaves, profiled and gables to plain and interlocking tiles, we stock roof tiles in various colours, styles, profiles, and sizes to suit all types of roofing projects. Here are some of the most popular roof tiles amongst our customers in the UK.
Plain tiles are simple, rectangular tiles with a uniform and flat profile. Most commonly made out of clay or concrete, plain tiles are a standard choice for property owners who want to achieve a more traditional and simple look. What’s more, is that this type of tile is especially popular for homeowners who have recently converted their loft.
Interlocking tiles are another popular choice. They are designed to fit perfectly together, creating a seamless weather-resistant surface. This type of tile is available in various shapes and styles. And although this type of tile is most commonly made from concrete, we stock up on a dozen clay interlocking tiles as well to help you achieve the professional look you’re after.
Originally from the Netherlands, pantile tiles have been a staple choice for roof covering in the UK for over five centuries. This type of tile features an S-shape profile, creating a distinctive yet satisfying wave-like pattern. Though pantile tiles were originally made from clay, most options today are concrete.
Double Roman Tiles
Double Roman tiles feature a large, double-curved profile. Originally, they were made out of clay, but nowadays, most double Roman tiles are made of concrete. Despite that, the switch in material hasn't impacted the beauty and efficacy of the tiles. As a result of that, to this day, they are a preferred choice among property owners who want to achieve a more traditional and Roman-like look.
Most typically made of concrete, slate roof tiles are extremely durable and long-lasting. Experts believe that a properly maintained slate tile roof can last between 75 to 100 years, so slate roofs are often touted as 'forever roofs'. At JJ Roofing Supplies, we stock a variety of slate roof tiles to suit every need and budget.
How Much Are Roof Tiles?
The price of roof tiles in the UK can vary quite a lot. Some of the biggest factors that determine the cost of a roof tile include the brand, type, and size of the tile, as well as the material that it's made out of. At JJ Roofing Supplies, we have over 700 different roof tiles in stock, each priced slightly differently.
That said, if you're in the market for higher-quality and longer-lasting products, such as Redland and Marley roof tiles, we also have a wide selection of premium roof tiles too.
Here, we'd also like to mention that besides the tiles' cost, you should consider the longevity of the tiles you buy. Roof repairs are not cheap, and although high-quality tiles may have a higher initial cost, they are less prone to damage in the future. Choosing to invest a little bit more upfront by buying more expensive tiles may end up saving you money (and a lot of hassle) in the future.
How Many Roof Tiles Do I Need Per M2?
The number of roof tiles needed per square metre varies. Some of the factors that will impact the number of tiles you’ll need include the size and profile of the tiles, the roof pitch, and the installation method.
If you are not sure about your particular roof or don't want to take the risk, we recommend reaching out to a roofing specialist who can do the exact calculations for you. That way, you won't suddenly be short on tiles during the project or spend more money on tiles than you need to.
