Tudor Roof Tiles historically authentic range of handmade peg and plain clay tiles are designed specifically with the restoration of historic roofs in mind.
In the first of a new series of downloadable information booklets, Tudor outlines the factors involved in specifying suitable replacement peg and plain tiles for older properties.
Choosing clay roof tiles for traditional, period or listed buildings can present a number of challenges for architects and conservationists depending on the age, location and type of renovation or building work involved, said Paul Lythgoe, Managing Director of Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd.
Our genuine handmade peg and plain tiles have a traditional sand-faced rustic look with idiosyncratic variations in texture, camber and colour and a sympathetic time weathered appearance, which will blend with many period properties.
Manufactured in both bespoke and standard sizes to complement historic and regional variations, they are also available with round or square peg holes or with nibs on the underside to suit the roof construction of the day.
Carefully chosen and high quality handmade replacement peg and plain tiles can represent a reliable, cost effective and performance guaranteed alternative to sourcing expensive second hand reclaim tiles, particularly when replacing large sections of a roof, said Paul Lythgoe.
