A roof alone represents around 5% of the value of your house, so it is important to
make the right choices of materials, profiles and colours. Choosing a roof is an
important decision - dont leave it to a third party. Your choice of roof will affect you
while living under it and have a significant effect on the re-sale value.
There are a lot of conflicting opinions about which materials are best for roofs so its
worth looking at some bare facts:
Both concrete and terracotta roof tiles are strong, hard wearing and durable. They
are extremely weather resistant and can handle high wind conditions, though this
will always depend on the fixing of the tiles.
Concrete and terracotta tiles provide good thermal insulation in all types of
weather,as well as good sound insulation.
The roof tiles we sell all have a 50 year guarantee to remain structurally sound,
and in addition, our terracotta tiles are fired at high temperatures and will
therefore never ever fade - no other roofing material can compare when it comes
to these colourfast properties.
