More planners and developers are recognising the cost-saving benefits that can be achieved through using Bute, thanks to its extended headlap which allows for a smaller tile format appearance. Bute is unique in that it offers the versatility of concrete and the benefits of greater strength, while also providing the authentic appearance of slate, clay and stone roofs.
