Key contractor reviews - over 40 companies e.g. Briggs Amasco, Avonside, Prater, Lakesmere,
etc.The roofing market as a whole is estimated to have grown by around 4.5% in 2014, following a
period of relatively poor performance, with a decline in 2012 and a modest increase in 2013. Driven
largely by the Help to Buy schemes and a shift back from flats to houses, demand for roof tiles has
outpaced supply over the past few years. Over the short to medium term, reasonable volume growth
is expected, largely driven by private housebuilding activity.
Roof tiles account for the largest share of the market by value, with concrete tiles constituting the
largest sub-sector by both value and volume. Clay tiles are also significant, while fibre cement and
natural slates occupying relatively small niches. Housebuilding and domestic re-roofing are the
largest applications although commercial usage is also important. Profiled metal roofing is almost as
large in value terms, although applications are almost exclusively limited to warehousing, industrial
buildings, airport structures, waste management facilities and retail 'sheds'.
Flat roof membranes & felts account for around 15%, with reinforced bitumen membranes
dominating this sector. Single ply membranes are increasing in popularity and account for almost a
third of the market. In the longer term these products are expected to show higher than average
growth. The rooflights sector is also an important sector in terms of value while other hard-t-quantify niche markets such as fully supported metal roofing, bitumen & cedar shingles, account for
smaller shares.
The distribution of roofing materials varies significantly between different product sectors. Builders'
merchants and roofing merchants are the key routes to market for suppliers of concrete and clay
As the majority of roofing slates are imported, independent importer and distribution networks are
the main channels. Imports are largely limited to natural slates, which dominate this particular subsector of the UK roof coverings market. In the profiled sheets and tiles sectors, both import and
export levels are low. With flat roofing systems mainly used on commercial buildings, the main
channels are roofing merchants and direct sales. Builders' merchants typically only supply bitumen
felts for RMI and extension projects.
