As companies across every area of the construction industry react to pressures to become more environmentally friendly, one leading roof-tile manufacturer has dispensed with the myth that ‘buying green’ costs a premium. Sandtoft Roof Tiles argues that when it comes to roofing products, construction firms can reduce the carbon footprint of the building’s roof while reducing its financial cost by selecting natural, well-designed roofing solutions.

Simon Oldridge, managing director at Sandtoft Roof Tiles said: ‘There is a myth among the construction community that any product marketed as “green” or environmentally considerate is likely to cost a premium over the alternatives. Although this may be the case in the consumer marketplace, in the construction trade the “green” credentials of a product can derive from its design and efficient use of materials – which are naturally linked to a cost efficiency.

‘Nowhere is this clearer than in the context of roofing,’ he continued, ‘where an interlocking clay plain tile, for instance, can reduce the carbon footprint of a roof by 35 per cent when compared with a traditional clay plain tile – just through its design efficiencies. ‘The fact that less product is required per square metre means costs for the project are also significantly reduced.’
