Experiencing the vast variety of textures and colours that our roof tiles provide up close can guide you in the decision-making process when selecting roof coverings. Our efficient sample service can help you in this process.

Request sample
The new Mendip 12.5 concrete interlocking tile can perform at low pitches which makes it ideal for one-storey extensions and refurbishments:

12.5° - 44° pitch with a rafter length up to 6m will require a 100mm headlap

All of our concrete interlocking tiles can achieve an 'A+' rating (which has the lowest environmental impact) in the Building Research Establishment's Green Guide to Specification. 

Accreditation to the BES 6001 framework standard for 'Responsible Sourcing' means that projects using our concrete interlocking slates can now achieve extra credits under BREEAM and the Home Quality Mark (HQM).

*Please note* The British Standard for Slating and Tiling (BS 5534) has recently been updated, making significant changes to tile fixing requirements. To ensure that your roof is compliant to the new standard, our fixing specification service is available.

A double pantile design with elegant flowing lines, instant visual appeal and exceptional strength. Performing at pitches as low as 12.5°, and available in 3 popular colours, the Mendip 12.5 interlocking tile is a perfect solution for low pitch roofing projects.
