It is acknowledged that all roofs require some maintenance during their life time even if it merely involves the removal of wind blow debris from valleys and gutters. 

Different roof coverings have a varying lifespan depending on the materials used and the quality of the workmanship. Most tiled roofs which have been laid correctly generally have a long lifespan with only the occasional maintenance needed. However, A E Higgs Roofing and Building services range from replacement of damaged or missing tiles to a complete new roof.


The external characteristic of a house plays a significant role and eye pleasing, attractive features on the outside including the roof make an appealing immediate impression.

A E Higgs Roofing and Building can provide a range of roof tiles from clay to concrete, all of which are supplied from reputable sources such as Marley and Redland. 

Clay is a natural material and has been used as a roofing product for several hundred years.  Clay tiles are durable, natural, sustainable and improve with age and weathering and their appeal adds value to buildings. Clay roof tiles can still be weather proof after 80-100 years.

Concrete tiles are another option available and the main advantage of concrete tiles is the lower cost compared to Clay tiles.  A well made concrete tile should last between 30-50 years.
