What is the lowest minimum pitch for a clay roof?
When it comes to clay plain tiles, some types of single camber tile can be used on roof pitches as low as 30 degrees (depending on the manufacturer) but most single and double camber clay plain tiles can be used down to 35 degree pitches.
However, there are some clay interlocking tiles which allow you to achieve the traditional clay look at a much lower pitch. For example, our Melodie clay interlocking pantiles can be used on pitches as low as 12.5 degrees. These tiles are
particularly good for extension projects where the roof may be lower than the main property but needs to blend with original pantiles. Due to the popularity of the tile, we have just added a brand new Slate Grey colour to the range, giving contractors more choice when creating low pitch roofs.
For a more rustic appearance, our Lincoln interlocking pantile has a low minimum pitch of 17.5 degrees and our Maxima double roman interlocking tile can also be used down to 17.5 degrees.
