A consistent approach to finishes

9.1.13Pitched roof coverings

Pitched roof coverings shall have an acceptable finished appearance.

Tiles and slates should:

  • be reasonably uniform in texture, finish and colour
  • be suitably mixed to avoid excessive colour banding.

Also note:

  • Some minor blemishes will occur on individual tiles and slates.
  • Some minor variations will occur in the texture, finish and colour of individual tiles and slates.
  • Efflorescence occurs naturally on some types of tile. It is not harmful and generally disappears over time. Tiles which have efflorescence when laid should be suitably mixed to avoid a patchy appearance.
