    FAQs

    What types of roof tile are there?

    Roofing is one of the most significant portions of your household. Not only does it protect the inhabitants from the elements, but it also plays a vital role in the architectural appeal. When people reflect of roofing, they consider various types of tile for the job.

    Metal Tiles

    When we talk of metal roofs, most of the people think of roofs made of metal panels which are joined together by joints or raised seams. This is often not the case as there are several numbers of obtainable metal roofing products.

    Ceramic Tiles

    Another popular choice of roofing material is ceramic. Clay tiles are incombustible and fairly sturdy, necessitating scarcer repairs or substitutions than asphalt roofs.

    Concrete Tiles

    For those that like the look of ceramic tiles, as well as their fire resistance, this may not be the choice, but those who want something a little tougher and less susceptible to cracking when having work done on the roof, there are the best tiles.

    Bituminous Tiles

    For those that want a lightweight, supple tile that’s easier to fit, there’s the bituminous tile. These types of tiles are made from cellulose fibre or using fibreglass allowing them to be flexible.

    Polymer-Sand Tiles

    A new-fangled substitute for ceramic tiles is the polymer-sand tile. Created from a combination of sand bound together with polymers, these are very rigid, sturdy tiles are shaped in a mould.

    Copper Tile

    Copper roofs can be a great choice for many due to their long lifespan. Copper tiles have the ability to last over a century before needing replacement.

    Composite Tile

    Another newer roofing tile is the composite. This is a multi-layered tile that is made using metal, acrylic and stone granules.

    Stone Tiles

    This is one of the oldest forms of roofing tiles that you can get out there. It is also one of the longest-lasting tiles on the market as well, with some roofs lasting well over 100 years.

    How to tile a roof?

    The task of installing a tile roof can be quite a difficult one. Such a project takes a great deal of preparation, well before the actual tile installation is done. It does not matter if you are putting new ones or replacing your old tiles, understanding the proper technique and steps become crucial.

    Remove old roofing (if applicable).

    This is, on its own, a major job that can take days and require special tools. It takes some time, but be prepared to do it right.

    Install battens (if applicable).

    Battens may be needed to hold the tiles in place if the roof is having a steep slope. Usually made of metal or wood, battens are generally 1 inch thick and run horizontally along the roof.

    You can find several varieties of tiles that has a hook or a lip allowing it to hang on the available battens. Apart from this, you can find several clips in the market which help to attach the tiles on to the batten.

    Determining the spacing for battens can be done easily using two tiles. To prevent interlocking, a three inch overlap is required at the minimum, and a smaller amount of overhang should be left over the eaves. Keep this in mind when you determine the locations of the battens.

    After you have determined the distance between the first two battens, measure the distance and set battens using that spacing up, making sure to double-check measurements as you go along.

    • Install the tiles.

    • You will need to begin with one side first, and then continue to move along the length of the roof.

    • Cut tiles to fit tight spots.

    • Tiles have to be cut precisely to overcome any obstacle like the chimney.

    • Install the ridge tiles.

    After completing the broad surfaces of the roof, special ridge tiles are required to cap the top.

    How to slate a roof?

    One of the most popular choices for roofing materials are roof slates. There is a number of advantages that a roof slate has, hey can be aesthetically pleasing, they can also increase the potential selling value of the house and many more. Slate is a sturdy and resilient material that delivers waterproofing physical characteristics to a pitched roof. Unlike other roof materials which absorb water slates do not. Therefore, slate is the most resistant towards freezing and water damage.

    Find out the pitch of your roof

    Before beginning with the fitting procedure, you need to figure out the pitch of your roof. The roof pitch commands how much overlap is essential with each slate. This has been made a lot easier than the early days with the advancement of technology.

    Find out the required overlap

    Once you’ve found out the exact pitch of your roof accurately, take a look at the slate producer’s description. Each manufacturer will propose the obligatory overlap in order to form a firm and safe slate roof.

    Roll out the roof membrane

    Firstly, guarantee your joists or trusses are clean of any sheards or old nails that could harm the membrane. You will now have to roll the chosen roofing membrane along the roof trusses. It is always wise to start from one of the bottom corners and keep rolling it along to the other corner.

    Secure the roof membrane

    Once the membrane has been moved out, use thump nails to protect one edge. You will now have to pull the membrane taut and carefully fix it into position. Do this before adding any nails across the membrane at points of intersection with the trusses for extra stability.

    Batten placement

    This is done to find the proper assignment of the battens. For this, you will need two full-sized slates along with an under eaves slate. Carefully position the battens on the top of the roof on the top of the overlay. Make sure not to fix them down since it will be easier to move them around and make any adjustments.

    How much is it to replace a roof?

    A roof is one of the most significant portions of any property and they’re also the single part of a structure most vulnerable to impairment from the elements. If your roof suffers substantial damage over time, maintenances and re-roofing charges can be expensive, time-consuming, and stressful which is why it is imperative to keep your roof in sound structural and aesthetic order.

    If a tile has fallen off from the top of your roof – you can expect to pay around £70-£100 to replace it including a different tile fitted in its place. Replacing a hip roof will cost between £4,250 and £7,250, the cost varies if you have a single valley or a double valley on your roof. For a new gable roof, you should expect to pay around £3,250 to £5,250.

    What does it cost to replace my roof?

    The charge of substituting your roof for a new one will be subject to the age and condition that it’s in, but usually, the cost of a new roof on an average property is around £5,500.

    Some of the key factors to keep in mind when calculating the cost of re-roofing your house include:

    • size of your roof

    • type and size of the materials used

    • shape and style of the roof

    • If structural changes are required or not

    • the roofing company hired

    Tiled roof repair costs

    If you are trying to prevent water from leaking inside your house for one or two tiles, then you can expect to pay between £100 to £200 to fix them and seal the leaks.

    Flat roof repair costs

    Minor jobs such as repairing flat roofs as well as sheds and garages or mending blisters can usually cost around £300.

    Roofing job Price range

    Replacing six ridge tiles £135-£260

    Replacing six broken or missing tiles £55-£105

    Cleanout of your gutter £35-£80

    Replacing one right tile on rooftop £70-£100

    The cost of a full re-roofing job can amount to around £3,250 to £7,250 depending on the size of your property.

    Hip roof Cost range Length of time

    Semi-detached home £4,250-£4,750 3-4 days
