The roof is the fifth façade of a house. It is of great importance in the look of a home and the overall impression it gives. Benders sells both concrete roof tiles and clay tiles. Which you choose is a matter of taste and is largely determined by the look of a house. Making the right choice from our growing roof tile offerings is important. However, what is suitable where?
Concrete roof tile
Our concrete roof tiles are available in three different profiles – traditional pantile, double pantile and flat. Bender Exklusiv is a profile for those seeking a roof with a little more life. Bender Palema is a classic profile that has been popular in the market since the 1960s. It suits all buildings. Bender Carisma is a flat tile for modern, functional buildings. It is an option that offers fantastic value for money.
Clay roof tile
Our interlocking clay roof tiles are available in three profiles – traditional pantile, double pantile and flat. Bender Hansa is a traditional pantile clay roof tile that is available with a modern, rounded front edge or the more classical straight front edge. Bender Tvilling is a double-pantile clay roof tile that is very easy to lay. It too has a modern rounded front edge or the more classical straight front edge. Bender Piano is a flat clay roof tile with a modern look that is suitable for most buildings.
Concrete roof tile or clay roof tile?
Both concrete roof tiles and clay roof tiles weigh roughly the same per square metre and can both be laid on roof pitches of down to 14 degrees. Benders offers appropriate accessories for all the profiles of both these products.
Choosing can be difficult. The major difference is price; concrete roof tiles are cheaper. A small suggestion from us at Benders – before choosing, lay several tiles on the roof and study them from a distance of 20 – 40 metres. This gives a useful idea of how the house will look with tiles of different colours and shapes.
