Here are some examples to help you identify the type of tiles on your roof. It's useful for us to know, as it affects ease and cost of installation.
When you've identified your roof, head back to the self survey form.
1. Slate tiles
Thin, blue-grey tiles, which may be interlocking. These roofs are more expensive to install on, as the tiles are particularly fragile and fiddly to work around.
2. Concrete tiles
Thick, grey-brown tiles (sometimes ridged).
3. Rosemary tiles
Thin and small, red-brown tiles. Slightly more expensive to install on than concrete.
4. Flat roof
It's often not practical or financially viable to retrofit solar panels on domestic flat roofs - see here for more info.
