Roof Tiles

Buildbase have a comprehensive range of tiles from which to choose. You will need to decide whether the roof is something you will tackle yourself, or whether this is an area that calls for the services of a specialist. If you decide to sub-contract this work we recommend that you ensure the roofing contractor is a member of an appropriate trade body or federation, and that appropriate insurances and guarantees are available.

Having decided on the choice of tiles for the project it can be a good idea to look at other properties in the area that have used the same type of roof tiles, as you can then assess how these look after weathering.

Current building regulations require appropriate ventilation of roof spaces to prevent condensation and damp affecting the structure or insulation within the roof space. This can be achieved in a number of different ways using special ventilation products that fit in the eaves, or in the roof ridge, or by using tile vents.

The Bradstone range of roofing materials is cast in moulds, produced after studying hand dressed stone. Many of our slates can be laid in diminishing courses and random widths for an authentic appearance. This, combined with ease of laying and the elimination of sorting and redressing, enables the traditional stone roof appearance to be kept alive at a relatively low cost.
