Your roof helps protect your home from the elements and depending on what material you use can determine how your house looks. There are 5 main types of roofing material that you could use depending on the shape of your roof.

Roof Tiles

Roof tiles are available in concrete and clay and are still a popular choice due to them being relatively inexpensive. They are also available in many different shapes and depending what the inclination of your roof is can determine what sort of roof tile would be best suited.

Slate Roof

Slate roofs have been used for centuries now and are still widely used today. There are two types of slate available, natural slate and artificial slate. Depending on your budget could determine what slate you would prefer to use as the natural slate is more expensive but would generally last longer than the artificial slate.

Thatched Roof

If you have a more traditional house or a cottage than a thatched roof could be for you. There are two types of thatched roofs, a traditional open thatched roof and a closed thatched roof. An open thatched roof would be less expensive to install but your energy costs would be higher along with insurance premiums.


An EPDM roof is a waterproof type of rubber that is ideally suited to cover your roof. This material has lots of advantages such as low maintenance, will last a lifetime, and will not crack. As you can imagine it is one of the more expensive types of roofs available. It is the perfect choice for a flat roof.

Zinc Roof

Zinc roofs have grown in popularity over the last few years as before they were only generally used for older buildings. Zinc is a perfect material to use if you have an unconventional shaped roof as it is very flexible. It’s perfect for round roofs, lasts extremely well, and is also recyclable.

If you’re looking to have a new roof and would like to discuss your options, please get in contact with us today and we will be more than happy to go through anything with you.
