Bespoke Hand Made Clay Roof Tiles
Award Winning Bespoke Hand Made Clay Roof Tiles
Tudor produces traditional roof tiles in a wide spectrum of bespoke and non-standard sizes to help preserve the appearance of old and listed properties or to bring creative visual impact to modern buildings.
Bespoke plain and peg tiles for older properties
When restoring historic roofs, it is vitally important to match the exact sizes of the original roof tiles (which before modern standards varied considerably), as the slightest deviation from the originals can destroy the overall appearance of the roof.
Tudor peg and plain clay tiles are made available in bespoke sizes with a gentle camber, subtle tones and textures and a time weathered appearance to suit older buildings. These can be made with square or round peg holes to accommodate a variety of wooden or metal pegs, or simply include standard nibs on the back for more modern methods of construction.
Bespoke roof tiles for modern buildings
Tudor’s technical ability to make unusual shapes and sizes from architect’s drawings has won favour on a number of modern architectural projects, where a unique design can add enormous visual impact.
An outstanding example of this is the spectacular new roof at King’s College Music School in Wimbledon, where the unique diagrid pattern on the roof is made up entirely of handmade plain tiles and bespoke shapes and sizes created from architect’s drawings.
King’s College Music School was winner in the 2018 Pitched Roofing Awards (Best Commercial Property Application using Roof Tiles) and Finalist in the 2019 AJ Specification Awards. Tudor’s bespoking capability also won the 2018 Build It Awards (Best Roofing System or Product).
Bespoke sizes of tiles can be made in any of the traditional Tudor colours. All are CE marked to EN 1304 standards for frost resistance, water impermeability, size and flexural strength and come with a 25-year performance warranty.
