Concrete tile alternatives to slate - Edgemere Anthracite
Slate roof tiles have long been a favourite roofing material in the UK, thanks to the material’s good looks, durability and local sources. But, natural slate is also expensive, heavy and can be difficult to install - and that’s why many contractors and homeowners are choosing to use slate alternatives such as concrete roof tiles.
Concrete tiles are an excellent alternative to slate, and they offer many benefits over natural slates. Here at Marley, our Edgemere Anthracite concrete roof tiles have been developed to provide the beautiful, natural appearance of slate at a fraction of the cost - and with easier installation.
Why choose Edgemere Anthracite concrete tiles instead of slate?
Our Edgemere range of concrete tiles is one of our most popular roof tiles, with colour options including Old English Dark Red, Smooth Brown and Smooth Grey. Following a significant increase in demand for low-cost alternatives to natural slate, we have introduced a fourth colour, Anthracite, which mimics the dark, cool tones of slate perfectly.
It's not just the colour that makes Edgemere Anthracite an ideal alternative to natural slate. The appearance of the interlocking tiles is also enhanced by a thin leading edge and a special broken-bond laying technique. The tiles are also just 18mm thick and have a sleek appearance.
Edgemere Anthracite concrete roofing tiles mimic natural slate so well, they may even provide a cost-effective way to comply with planning regulations.
When speaking about the introduction of the new Anthracite colourway, Daniel Redfern, product manager at Marley explained: “Strict planning stipulations often determine product selection and we are confident the introduction of this attractive tile colour, will result in an increased specification of Edgemere in areas where slate has historically been used.”
Other benefits of Edgemere Anthracite include:
Versatile - suitable for low-pitched roofs down to 17.5°
Single lap interlocking tiles with a coverage rate of 9.7 slates per square metre.
Up to 40% thinner and lighter in weight than natural slate - just 44kg/m² (0.43kN/m²) when installed with a 75mm headlap.
A slate-like appearance at a fraction of the cost.
A wide range of fittings and accessories is available to complement the tiles.
Edgemere Anthracite, like all products in our Edgemere range of concrete roof tiles, also delivers outstanding environmental benefits. It has an A+ rating in the BRE’s Green Guide to Specification and BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing certification. Extra credits are also available for the use of Edgemere on projects being built to the Home Quality Mark or BREEAM.

Marley Eternit New Lead Replacement Roll
With the rising cost of lead, together with the continued rise in theft of lead and other building materials, Stuart Nicholson, Roof Systems Director explains how its new Lead Replacement Roll, Flexfast is providing contractors with a cost effective alternative, while answering some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to installation.
What are the advantages of lead replacement products?
While lead has traditionally been used as a flashing material by contractors for many years, it is now starting to be seen as a time consuming, labour intensive, highly skilled, costly and potentially hazardous job and lead replacement products are, as a result, growing in popularity.
Our Lead Replacement Roll has been designed and developed as a time saving solution, that doesn’t require specialist lead fitting skills. With similar aesthetics and rigidity to lead, the new adhesive roll provides contractors with a cost saving alternative, which is also much quicker and easier to install than the traditional solution.
How easy is it to install the Lead Replacement Roll?
Flexfast, Marley Eternit’s Lead Replacement Roll, is easy to install. Featuring an ultra-sticky, UV and age resistant, Butyl adhesive backing it provides a quick and secure fix, with a professional finish that will last for years.
In addition, as it is manufactured from creped coated aluminium, it is reinforced with metal grid for strength and rigidity, but it can actually stretch up to 60%, so can be moulded to even the deepest profile tiles.
Are specialist tools or equipment required?
No special tools are required during installation, as the Lead Replacement Roll can be cut easily with a knife or snips and moulded to the contours of the roof and walls with just your hands for a permanent watertight flashing.
However, it is important to make sure that the roof material and walls are dry and dust free before you start, a quick brush is recommended to remove any dust or loose materials. For unstable surfaces prime first with a masonry stabilising solution or a bituminous primer.
Is the Lead Replacement Roll a more expensive option?
No, as the Lead Replacement Roll is made from Aluminium it provides contractors with a cheaper option. Our new Lead Replacement Roll is significantly lighter than its lead equivalent, making it easier to handle and reduces health and safety risks.
Can the Lead Replacement Roll be purchased as part of a full roof system?
Yes! Adding to Marley Eternit’s existing comprehensive accessory range, including Universal dry verge, underlays, GRP valleys, JB Red roofing battens and much more, the new Lead Replacement Roll can be purchased individually or as part of a full roof system.
Marley Eternit’s new aluminium wall and chimney flashing solution is available in two widths 300mm & 450mm.
