Top Roofing Choices

Roofs are arguably one of the most important parts of any structure, yet most people take little notice of them unless something goes wrong. Although not generally thought of as glamorous, roofs can be created in a surprising range of designs and the choice of roofing materials is very wide.

RoofGeminiTiles.jpgForticretelogo.jpgThatched roofs may present the quintessential image of the British countryside, but they are very much in the minority and for most homes or business properties, the choice of product for a pitched roof is between tile and slate. But within these categories there are several options. In addition to traditional clay tiles, natural stone and slate, there are now roofing tiles made of steel or concrete. These offer strength with the benefit of lighter weight, saving on transport and labour costs.

Featured Company – Forticrete

Among the architectural masonry products manufactured by Forticrete are innovative roofing tiles that replicate traditional tiles and slate, but with significant improvements.

All Forticrete roofing products are extremely cost-effective, manufactured to the highest quality standards and fully guaranteed. They carry the prestigious BS Kitemark and many have the ECOTILE or ECOSLATE trademarks demonstrating the company’s commitment to environmentally-friendly products and processes.

Ranges include the popular Gemini (pictured), a double cambered plain tile suitable for pitches down to 22.5˚ that offers weight reduction benefits and savings on roof battens and trusses as well as on fixing costs. Features include hidden fixings, 10 colours and a 60-year product integrity guarantee. There is also a Gemini Traditional Sandfaced range with a subtle weathered finish.

RoofHardrowSlate.jpgCenturion 10 is a concrete tile for low pitch applications with decades of proven effectiveness against the elements. For ultimate strength, there is the re-engineered V2 range, offering exceptional resistance to wind, rain and ice and a 60-year product integrity guarantee.

The Senator is a smooth pantile for a traditional simple profile and Forticrete also makes plain tiles for vertical hanging.

Slate ranges include the Minislate, offering the aesthetic appeal of natural slate in three colours, with the simple fixing benefits of an interlocking tile. Long-established Hardrow Slates have the appearance of stone (left) and are through coloured in a wide choice of single or blended shades. They have proven durability with exceptional water resistance.
