Planning permission is not required for a new vlay tile roof unless your property is listed building or within a conservation area.

This will help provide a warmer and more energy efficient building.

Some signs that your clay roof might need repairing are when clay tiles start falling or slip off the roof. Also clay tiles can start spalling (flaking). Where older clay tile roofs were installed using non breathable felt this can cause roofing battens to become saturated with water and rot. Although not often apparent because the battens are under the roofing tiles, some tell-tale signs can be the lines in the concrete roof tiles start to look un-even as some tiles come loose and slip. Flute Roofing install new breathable felt underlay on all our new re-roofs and repairs. This ensures that your roof can breathe and allows the timber on your roof to stay dry.
