CHOOSING ROOF TILES for your renovation

There’s a plethora of options when it comes to specifying roof tiles for your refurbishment – but which product is right for you? Rebecca Foster summarises what you need to know
Handmade clay plain units from Lifestiles were specified for this barn conversion in Essex. They cost around £40 per m2

As well as providing a protective barrier against the elements, the roof plays a key role in establishing your home’s aesthetic. If you’re undertaking a renovation, selecting the right covering is a vital part of creating a look that fits with the overall design of your house and blends sympathetically with the locale.

The scope of your roof refurbishment may range from replacing a few broken or damaged tiles to recovering the property entirely. There are numerous factors to bear in mind, from the size, shape and material makeup of the units to planning considerations such as listed building consent and other special designations. It’s also essential to factor in the pitch of the roof, as some tiles may not be suitable for structures with especially steep or shallow gradients. Of course, budget will play a key role in your specification, too.
