A roof renovation project near Easingwold, North Yorkshire, has become the first in the UK to use an innovative new low pitch clay interlocking tile from Marley Eternit.
Mr and Mrs Mayoh bought Drumlin Fold farmhouse and outbuildings last year and undertook a renovation project to turn the old tractor shed into a guest suite.
The owners needed to find a low pitch clay roof tile that would match the traditional clay pantiles that had been on the main farmhouse for almost twenty years.
Owner Sandra Mayoh explains: "Marley Eternit had just launched the Melodie tile and our surveyor found it on their website. The contractor was able to source it from Burton Roofing who was one of the first merchants in the country to stock it. Were delighted with the finished roof, which has a lovely Romanesque feel to it and fits in very well with the existing clay roof on our house.
The Melodie roof tile is a single interlocking precision engineered clay pantile with an extremely robust interlock and integral weatherbars and drainage channels.
