Marley Eternit Birkdale Slates Rig low pitch

The clever people at Marley Eternit have understood that when building a single storey rear extension, there is a limited height for the roof due to the first floor window sill. This often results in the permissible lowest roof pitch dictating how far the extension can extend. Well here is a solution - Marley Eternit Thrutone or Birkdale, both are fibre-cement slate that can go down to a pitch as low as 15 degrees (4m max rafter length) and Marley Eternit Melodie, a clay pantile that can go down to a pitch of 12.5 degrees! Great news, but remember that if you wish to have rooflights, Velux only guarantee their rooflights to be weatherproof as low as 15 degrees.

  • "Thank you so much for your hard work, support and perseverance! We really do appreciate your determination and professionalism which has, in no doubt, ensured the success of the planning application."

  • "Fantastic work, thank you. You made the application seem a doddle!"
