What Low-Pitch Roof Products Are Available?

Low-pitch graph for Marley roof tiles Due to the increase in domestic extensions with low-pitch roofs, the demand for low-pitch roofing solutions is greater than ever.  

There are a number of products on the market that are suitable for low-pitch roofs. Options available from Marley include clay and concrete tiles and cedar shingles and shakes.  

Of course, the minimum pitch will depend on each type of roof tile - specifically on its design and materials. So we’ve provided an overview of the low-pitch roofing products that we offer: 

Concrete tiles 

Edgemere interlocking tiles provide a cost-effective and aesthetically similar alternative to natural slate. These large-format concrete roof tiles can be provided in a dark grey colour that mimics the look of slate perfectly, and the product’s thin leading edge also helps to give it a slate-like appearance. It’s also suitable for low-pitch roofs: 

  • Down to 22.5° pitch (smooth), with a headlap of 75mm
  • Down to 17.5° pitch (smooth), with a headlap of 100mm 

As well as the Edgemere range, we offer a number of other concrete roof tiles that are suitable for low-pitch roofs, such as: 

Clay tiles
