Tiled roofing is an utterly timeless solution that can add heaps to a property’s value, by bringing a considerable amount of curb appeal to the table. The JRH Roofing team, based in Hassocks and active throughout the Brighton, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and Lewes areas, has built countless tiled pitch roofs in all sorts of different shapes and sizes.

Clay Roof Tiles – These come in a range of shapes and patterns and are most commonly associated with Mediterranean properties, and those inspired by them. While they’re known for being low maintenance and eco-friendly, keep in mind as far as tiles go they are somewhat brittle.
Concrete Roof Tiles – Exceptionally durable, this form of tiled roofing is often manufactured to emulate clay and slate. Many clients in our principal service areas – Hassocks, Brighton, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and Lewes – choose it because it’s an economical alternative to the aforementioned materials.
Interlocking Tiled Roofing – One of the quickest tiles for a roofer to install, these are usually flat with a smooth or granular finish. They’re known for their affordability, and can be sourced in a range of materials including concrete, clay and slate.
Large Formant Tiled Roofing – Exactly what it says on the tin: large format tiles are bigger, and many clients find them more eye-catching. Furthermore, as it takes less tiles to finish a roof, they minimise labour costs and thus reduce overall expenditure. They are available in clay and concrete, in various styles and colours.
Low Pitch Tiled Roofing – If your roof has a pitch between 10 degrees and 20 degrees, you may wish to invest in these. They help navigate planning regulations which prevent the use of certain tiles on these types of roofs, and are available in both clay and concrete (interlocking variants are also manufactured).
Pantiles – These feature a unique S shaped indentation, and while traditionally forged from clay, concrete pantiles have become increasingly popular over recent years. The former variety usually have a 15mm edge, while the latter doubles this with a 30mm edge. Concrete pantiles are seen as a more budget-friendly option, while clay pantiles offer a luxury look that some clients love and cannot do without.
Tiled roofing structures boast long lifespans, especially when well maintained and repaired as and when required (e.g, if a tile slips following prolonged exposure to extreme weather). Our Hassocks, Brighton, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and Lewes clients also enjoy an aesthetic richness you simply can’t get with any other form of roofing.
Our tiled roofs help keep properties warm and cosy, and reduce energy expenditure through effective insulation. They give a “complete” finish to a property, which can significantly improve curb appeal and thus add property value. While they do take longer to complete than, for example, a flat roof – we think the final product is more than worth the extra wait.
