Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd, Britain's foremost independent handmade clay roof tile manufacturer, is extending its popular Kent Peg Tile price promotion in response to the short supply and soaring costs of second hand reclaimed Peg Tiles.
During the twelve-month promotion period, the companys traditionally made Kent Peg Tiles will be available at the same price as its clay plain tiles.
Made from the finest English natural clay, these sand-faced Peg Tiles have a gentle double camber and meticulous detailing, making them ideal for specialised historical renovation and restoration work.
With their warm, subtle tones and variation in shape and texture, they carefully recreate the time weathered look of the ancient peg tiles of Kent, which have been part of the English architectural landscape since the 13th century.
Not surprisingly, for many architects and conservationists, they are now becoming the preferred alternative to sourcing expensive second hand reclaimed tiles.
Manufactured using traditional craftsmanship, each tile is hand pressed, moulded and trimmed, and then strengthened by advanced firing techniques to give the final product exceptional performance and durability which, unlike second hand reclaim tiles, is performance guaranteed for many years to come.
Both square and round peg holes can be made to accommodate a variety of wooden or metal pegs, and bespoke tile options will ensure that most restoration projects can be undertaken.
The introduction of a new energy efficient Kiln together with improved production processes has meant that we are able to offer authentic, high quality Kent Peg Tiles at exceptionally competitive prices, said Paul Lythgoe, Managing Director of Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd.
All Tudor roof tiles are CE marked to EN 1304:2005(E) and are tested for frost resistance, water impermeability and flexural strength.
They are available in five traditional colours: Medium Antique, Dark Antique, Red Antique, Sussex Brown and Sussex Red, complemented by the new Jubilee variegated colourways.
