Your clay tile and concrete tile roof in safe hands

Clay Tiles & Concrete Tiles

Ashford Hill Roofing are proud of our reputation as one of the region's foremost roofing contractors.

The widest choice of clay tiles and concrete tiles

Roof tiles made of clay and concrete enjoy great popularity in roofing projects, principally down to the wide range of designs and profiles available. Suitable for pitched roofs with gradients over 15 degrees, curved and other complex shaped roofs, and for eye-catching vertical facings.

No real performance gap between clay tiles and concrete tiles

Your choice of clay tile or concrete tile will largely depend on planning regulations or your budget. But there is no real performance gap; both will keep your building watertight, deliver excellent resistance to weather and temperature extremes. There is quite literally a tile that will suit every project, from residential homes to supermarkets to heritage buildings. We only recommend tiles from reputable companies who typically guarantee them for up to 30 years, but in our experience 60 years is a reasonable expectation of service life.

Clay Tiles

Clay roof tiles have been used in the UK since Roman times. Today, they are moulded to shape before being baked in a kiln. A wide range of designs and profiles are available to meet the demands of all roofing applications:

  • plain clay tiles, plain peg clay tiles and iterlocking clay tiles
  • avaliable in flat and shaped profiles
  • - pantile ('S' shaped profile)

    - double pantile

    - roman (similar to a pantile but with a flat cross section and a small roll), and

    - double roman

  • handcrafted machine-made clay tiles and handmade premium clay tiles

Ashford Hill Roofing source quality clay tiles from Keymer, Sandtoft, Marley Eternit, Terreal, Redland, Tudor, Kent Clay, William Blythe, Michelmersh, Heritage, Imrys, Lifestyles, Traditional and other reputable companies. The tiles comply with both BS EN 1304: 2013 and BES 6001.

Available in red, orange, grey, brown and terra cotta colours, they benefit from variations in colour and texture that offer you a unique traditional style. They can also be sprayed prior to baking, typically with bright Blue or Green enamel paints, for Art-deco and contemporary applications.

We have a selection of decorative ridge tiles to choose from, including: crested, cocks comb, roll top, club crested and socketed. With distinctive roof finials, ball top finials, gargoyles and imps for that special finishing touch.

Concrete Tiles

Concrete roof tiles were developed in 1924 to offer a more cost-effective alternative to clay tiles. They were designed with interlocking profiles to make installation quicker and easier. With proven performance and visual characteristics that approach the look and feel of more costly alternatives, they are the undeniable first choice for high-volume developers.

Ashford Hill Roofing source quality concrete tiles that meet BS EN 491: 2011 and BES 6001 from Forticrete, Sandtoft, Marley Eternit, Redland and Russell and other reputable companies. These concrete tiles typically achieve an A+ rating in the BRE Green Guide to Specification. Additionally, as concrete is less porous than clay, they enjoy lower rates of moss growth.

Concrete tiles are available in red, grey, brown and black colours and manufactured in the widest range of sizes, designs and profiles:

  • plain flat
  • pantile ('S' shaped profile)
  • double pantile
  • roman (similar to a pantile but with a flat cross section and a small roll), and
  • double roman
