Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Clay Roof Tiles?
Clay tiles are one of the most popular types of roofing materials throughout Europe. They have been used for centuries due to their beautiful appearance, superb durability, and sustainable production.
These roof tiles are available in a variety of styles. Partly made possible by the versatility of the materials and variety of colours clay is available in. This allows you to find the ideal appearance for your property, whether it is a period building or a new build.
When buying clay roof tiles you have a choice of various brands, such as Marley and Redland. Whilst they use similar materials, many offer unique colouring options and profiles.
How Much Do Clay Tiles Cost?
The cost of clay tiles can vary dependent upon the producer, size and clay used. All these factors can impact the quality and coverage of the tile, therefore influencing the total cost.
You can expect the cost of clay roof tile to be between £35 and £40 per square meter. This excludes any underlays, timber or labor required to fit them.
This is significantly higher than concrete tiles, which can cost between £10 - £15 per square meter. Although, clay roof tiles are similarly priced to slate roof tiles at between £30 and £40 per square meter.
With a lifespan in excess of 60 years, clay tiles are amongst the lowest priced roofing material. They also require virtually no maintenance. So, whilst the initial cost may be high, they are incredibly cost-effective in the long-term.
Are Clay Roof Tiles Eco-Friendly?
When compared to many other roofing materials, clay roof tiles are often considered environmentally friendly. This is due to them producing virtually no greenhouse gases during manufacturing and being easily recycled.
However, clay roof tiles also offer a handful of other benefits for the environmentally-conscious homeowner. For example, they provide an added layer of insulation and will outlast many modern alternatives. Requiring far fewer to be produced in the long-term.
