Our traditional range of handmade clay roof tiles give a stunning look and effect that has stood the test of time for centuries.
Each tile has its own unique style – it has variations in colour, texture and shape that cannot be replicated in any other way. Each tile is lightly sanded to further add to its charm.
The splendour of clay tiles is that they have a beauty that will elegantly weather and mature slowly with age.
Traditional handmade clay tiles are the perfect choice for those undertaking a sensitive project or development where it is essential that the building blends in perfectly with its surroundings.
All our roof tiles are tested with our in house laboratory facility to meet current British standards – BS EN 538 Flexural strength, BS EN 539-1 Impermeability & BS EN 539-2 Frost resistance, we then further test them independently with Das Keramik Institut, a global expert in material testing and analysis.
Traditional Clay Roof Tiles must be laid and fixed to comply with BS 5534: the British Standard Code of practice for slating and tiling, and BS 8000: Part 6: the British Standard Code of practice for workmanship on building sites. The code of practice for tiling and slating also recommends clay tiles should be mixed from three pallets when being loaded out.
*We guarantee our products to a minimum roof pitch of 35 degrees. The British Standard Code of practice for slating and tiling recommends a minimum roof pitch of 40 degrees for handmade tiles.
On site Safety: Pallets should be offloaded onto firm level ground.
