Tudor Roof Tiles range of hand made vertical hanging and decorative wall tiles can add value, character and individuality to both new buildings and the restoration of older styled properties.
The tradition of hanging roofing tiles vertically, particularly on the first floor and upper storeys of buildings, goes back to the late seventeenth century when they first started appearing in the south of England.
Today, this is still a very popular and creative way of enhancing buildings with a touch of olde world charm.
With their time weathered appearance and subtle variations in shape and colour, Tudors plain and peg tiles are ideal for vertical tiling traditional and heritage styled properties, where they can be combined with a choice of decorative and ornamental tiles to create a stunning feature.
Creative use of hanging tiles is also an excellent way to add character and kerb appeal to modern properties, which may already have ordinary and unprepossessing machine made clay or concrete tiles on the roof.
Made from the finest English natural clay, the distinctive double camber not only adds character, but when used over brickwork, can help cover some of the irregularities in walls, minimise rain penetration and help increase thermal insulation.
Tudors plain and peg tiles are a natural choice for conservation projects and represent a cost-effective alternative to re-claimed roof tiles. Combining age-old craftsmanship with modern performance benefits, each tile is carefully hand pressed, moulded and trimmed, and then strengthened by advanced firing techniques to give the final products exceptional durability.
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.
