All your roofing needs covered

With the Marley Roof System, every element of the roof covering is included – from the battens to fittings.

What's included in the Marley Roof System?

Achieve compliance and faster roofing installation

BS 5534 is the code of practice for installing slates and tiles. It covers everything from batten selection and dry-fixing to calculations for wind uplift. While the standard isn't required by law, following its guidelines will help to aid compliance with the Building Regulations.

Marley is widely recognised as one of the early pioneers of the dry-fix industry. We developed many of the first high-performance purpose-made systems for pitched roofs and we continue to design and innovate, adding to and improving our wide range of dry-fix products.

Today, we offer the most comprehensive roof system on the market, with a complete range of dry-fix roofing systems that will help to ensure a project meets all regulatory requirements, while also simplifying and speeding up installation.
So what makes up the Marley roof system?

How does it work?

Built from an extensive range of different components, our comprehensive roof system enables you to create bespoke specifications to match the specific needs of the roofs across your developments.

All of our components are fully compatible with each other and have been tried and tested to ensure full integration and maximum performance. So take the hassle out of roofing and design a beautiful high-performance Marley roof system.

How does the Marley Roofing System work?

With components guaranteed to work together seamlessly, housebuilders can rely on streamlined installation, simplified project management and complete compliance with the building regulations.

Base layers

JB Red Battens are the only machine-graded battens on the market, so you can be sure they're strong and durable. We also offer a choice of high-performance underlays, both vapour-permeable and non-breathable, depending on the home's ventilation requirements. And for fire safety between adjoining properties, our Roof Defence fire barrier will add an extra layer of protection for people and their properties.

Roof coverings

With roof coverings ranging from clay and concrete tiles to timber shingles and shakes, housebuilders can select products to suit any sector, geographical location and aesthetic required, including low-pitch options down to 12.5 degrees. We also offer fully integrated solar panels that contribute towards Part L compliance.

Roofing accessories

Our complete range of roofing accessories includes everything needed for mortar-free, secure, and reliable roof detailing. Choose from roof vents, hips, ridges, verges, and valleys – all are fully compatible with the rest of our roofing system and can be specified to meet project requirements.

A 15-year warranty

Our 15-year warranty covers more pitched roofing elements than any other manufacturer and gives ultimate assurance that our integrated roofing solutions can be specified and installed with complete confidence.
