Tile Roofs

Interlocking concrete roofing tiles are the choice for many new build and re-roofing projects. Long lasting and economic, a tiled roof requires minimal maintenance, and should last a lifetime with care.

K&G Roofing are experts in tile roofing and work in conjunction with architects and leading manufacturers such as Marley and Redland to specify, design and construct tiled roofs in the Glasgow area.

While tiled roofs are hard wearing and long lasting, they should be inspected and maintained to prevent problems. Unlike slate, tile roofs can be susceptible to moss build up which can cause problems, and cracked tiles will cause water penetration and will need to be replaced.

Slate Roofs

Slate roofs were the natural choice for hundreds of years, and are probably still the longest lasting roofing material. There are many different types of slate, including Scottish slate from places including Ballachulish, Aberfoyle and Seil, which still adorn many roofs in Glasgow, although no roofing slate has been quarried in Scotland for over 50 years.

K&G Roofing can maintain your slate roof replacing broken or missing slates with new or reconditioned ones. Our slaters are highly skilled and have considerable experience of slate roof repair.

We also re-roof and build new roofs in slate, sometimes to meet conservation area or listed building stipulations, often for their inherent durability and appearance. New slates are often imported, with Spanish slate being a reasonable match for Scottish slate colouration. Traditional Scottish slating practices such as diminishing courses, smaller at the top, can be incorporated so a new slate roof will blend in and not look out of place. Modern slate roofs are built with a breathable felt layer between the sarking boards and the slates which should protect the roof structure in the case of damage.

Chimney Repair & Removal

Chimneys are often a cause of roofing problems, and can be dangerous if not kept in a well maintained state. Crumbling masonry, loose chimney pots, cracked flashings, birds nests and damp penetration are just some of the problems that chimneys can experience.

K&G Roofing can inspect and maintain your chimneys, preventing small problems from developing into major works.

We can also cap or remove chimneys completely, if the chimney stack is no longer required.
