Tiling & Slates

Tiled and slated roofs are an aesthetically pleasing roofing option which can greatly enhance the appearance of your property. They are extremely durable and can be easily repaired as individual tiles and slates can be replaced.

specialises in slate and tiled roofing.

Give your home the roof it deserves, our team specialises in slate and tiled roofing.

If you are interested in installing a brand new tiled of slate roof, contact Roof Repairs. We are an experienced roofing company servicing Central London and surrounding areas. Our team of talented professionals will install a stunning tiled or slate roof at an affordable price.

Roof Planning Restrictions

If you own a building that it heritage listed or located in a conservation area, you may be restricted in regards to the type of roof you can install. Your new roof may need to use the same materials as the previous roof or look a certain way.

Fibre Cement Slates

If you are looking for an extremely durable and affordable roofing product, consider fibre cement slates. They are a fantastic alternative to slate and other types of traditional materials.

While slate tiles look great, they can be fragile and may be damaged during storms. Fibre cement slates are much tougher so can withstand much more abuse. It’s also possible to rivet down fibre cement slates which prevents wind pushing its way underneath the slate and compromising it.

Spanish Slate

Spanish Slate is a luxurious product that is slightly more expensive than Welsh Slate. It is an ornate slate with a beautiful appearance that is available in a range of colours. Other alternatives to Spanish Slate include Canadian trinity, Brazilian slate and Chinese roofing slate.

Roof Tiling

We work closely with leading tile manufacturers to clients a wide range of roofing tiles to choose from. They include clay tiles, concrete tiles, ceramic tiles, and terracotta tiles. We also offer clients a choice between dry verge/dry ridge systems and ridges/verges which use traditional mortar.

Chimney Stacks

The perfect time to remove unused chimney stacks is when you are installing a new roof. The scaffolding will already be in place and our team will be able to disassemble the chimney quickly.

If you wish to retain a chimney that is in poor condition, it may need to be repointed to retain their structural integrity. This is a more expensive task, but made easier by the presence of the scaffolding that is being used as we instal your new roof.

Roof Lights and Velux Windows

Roof lights and Velux windows are a wonderful addition to a property. They add a huge amount of natural light to indoor areas, which can transform the appearance of a room. Adding more natural light can also reduce the cost of your energy bills as you won’t need to use artificial light as often.

We can install roof lights and Velux windows to bring more light into your loft or through the loft and into another room. Installing these kinds of components is much easier when done at the same time as installing a new roof, as the equipment is already in place.

Tiling and Slating

The average lifespan of a tile or slate roof is about 70 years, however, this figure can vary greatly based on the quality of construction and materials used. If your roof is approaching this age and has started deteriorating, you may need to completely replace it.

Our specialists will perform an inspection of your roof and tell you if a new roof needs to be installed. They can also explain the types of slate and tile roofing products that are available. There are dozens of products on the market, which use different colours, textures, and shapes. We can help you find the perfect tile for your project.

Welsh Slate

We stock high-quality Welsh slate in a wide range of sizes and colours. They are beautiful tiles which can really add a distinguished appearance to any home or commercial property. Our sales team can help you choose a Welsh Slate for your next project, based on your property’s design aesthetic and your personal preferences.

Melbourne Interlocking Slate

Melbourne Interlocking Slate is an exciting new roofing product that has the appearance of natural slate at a more affordable price. It is a lightweight tile which can be fixed in place very quickly because of its interlocking design. This leads to significant cost savings as installation is much faster.

Roofline

If you have decided to install a new roof, it is important to consider the appearance and functionality of the rest of your roofline. That’s because the guttering, cladding, fascias, soffits, and other components may need to be replaced or repaired.

The soffits are boards that sit beneath the fascias to fill the gap between the wall and fascia boards. If you need these replaced, it is usually a good idea to do the fascias and guttering at the same time. It will be cheaper to replace all three components now while the scaffolding is up instead of doing it a few years down the track.

If the soffits, fascias, cladding, guttering and other components are in great shape, you will not need replace them at all. Our roofing specialists will carefully examine your roof and assess the lifespan of it components.

Mick Keithley

Overall very good and very pleased with the final outcome. Slight delay in starting the job but this was addressed with an apology and discount once my need for urgency was understood. The trader then did everything possible to complete the job as soon as possible to my satisfaction and even threw in some extras at a reasonable price. I would use them again.

Roofing and General building were not the cheapest quote we received but after meeting their representatives, viewing their portfolio and also seeing some of the work they had carried out locally, we felt comfortable they could handle what was a very large roof renovation project. It’s very early days but their work looks stunning. Highly recommend this company and look forward to getting them in for some of the other work we require.

Very friendly, reliable and efficient service. We called them to give a quote for couple of jobs of which one was more urgent ie fixing the roof tiles back. They came on same day on a Saturday and fixed the tiles back. Really appreciated that they came on same day and resolved the problem quickly and efficiently.

He fixed the work the previous trader had done. It turned out that we didnt need to pay for so many repairs before as it just required a few new tiles

Very friendly and helpful. We appreciate Michael’s efforts to fit our small but urgent job in between other jobs at short notice and he and Calum and Carl did an excellent job for a reasonable price. Thank you.

Mark Hepner

Michael and his team offered a seamless service and at competitive prices. I would definitely recommend Roofing and General Building to cater for all roofing, cladding, guttering services. They're a team of professionals who understand customer needs before money.

Ahmer Kunwar

Mike completed two jobs for me, both roof repairs. Initially some emergency repair to a leaking pitched roof, and then completely surfacing the flat roof above a conservatory. Mike was professional and informative about the work he was carrying out. He took a number of videos and photos of the damaged roof to explain the work he was carrying out. Everything was done to a very high standard with good attention to detail. Work was completed on time and within the set budget

Excellent service

Our faulty roof was repaired in good time, I’d happily come here again for future roofing repairs and fittings, thanks again Michael.

Roof repairs on my leaking roof.

Mike Marshall of Roofing and General building was both attentive and flexible, for example, he did not insist on building a tower scaffold just to inspect the roof. Many did. I find that helpfulness exceptional. His company did a good clean job, under complicated circumstances because my roof has 12 solar panels, within 5 days even though extra remedial work had to be done to the rotten joists which initially was unforeseen. So I definitely would recommend him. Suzy O'Shea, London E16
