Kevin is a training and technical support manager, specialising in roof tiles and slates.

It is not recommended to use a roof tile at a pitch lower than it is designed for.

There are several products within the Marley range that can be used at low roof pitches. 

Our Mendip 12.5 tiles can be used in roof pitches as low as a 12.5°, with some restrictions on rafter length.

Our LincolnWessex &Standard Mendip roof tiles can be used down to a minimum 15° pitch, with some limitations on the length of rafter that can be used.

Where can I get more information? 

If you have questions about any of our products, please download a brochure or contact us.
