Contractor: Graham Roofing
Type of works: Redland Rosemary Classic natural clay plain tiles were used throughout the re-roofing of a church.

Redland Rosemary Classic natural clay plain tiles were used throughout the complex re-roofing of St Sophia’s, a 120-year-old Grade-A listed Byzantine-style church in the Ayrshire town of Galston.

The Rosemary name is synonymous with natural clay plain tiles, adding distinction and character to traditional roofing for over 160 years. The single and cross-cambered tiles are manufactured from the finest clays in a range of warm brindle, weathered and red colours that create attractive roofs with a distinct advantage.

This advantage is the invaluable peace-of-mind in Rosemary’s reliable high performance from its modern manufacturing techniques, backed by the unique Redland 15 Year Roof System Guarantee.

Because handmade tiles were not an option, over 12,000 of the Rosemary tiles required double cutting by contractor Graham Roofing (Scotland) to shape around the 42m-high central dome.

Graham Roofing kept one tile from each of the turret’s 85 courses to serve as a template for cutting the red-coloured tiles to achieve the correct radius. Each replacement batten had been notched in the back, to bend at the varying radii required. Matching arris hips give a sharp definition to the profile of the lower roof’s ridge.

All the fixings and accessories were according to recommendations based on the SpecMaster service provided by Redland’s Technical Solutions team – except the gold leaf applied to the cross.
