Tudor Roof Tiles, a leading independent manufacturer of traditional handmade clay Peg and Plain tiles, has returned to full production at its factory in Lydd, Kent.
Comprehensive health and Safety and COVID-19 social distancing measures have been put in place throughout all operations from clay processing and handmaking through to dispatch to ensure the safety and well-being of its workforce.
“We are delighted to be open for business and, despite these challenging times, we are confident that we can meet customer demand in a safe and responsible way, as the UK building industry gets back into action,” said Paul Lythgoe, Managing Director of Tudor Roof Tiles. “Extensive stocks are now also available for immediate delivery or collection by appointment.”
With their subtle variation of tone and texture, Tudor’s award-winning clay tiles are much sought after for the restoration of heritage projects, as well as adding character and individuality to new homes, extensions and contemporary architectural projects.
With no two tiles the same, each clay tile is individually hand-pressed, moulded and trimmed and then kiln-fired to create an ‘instant aged’ and time weathered appearance. Once blended together they create a stunning roofscape and can also be hung vertically as cladding for striking decorative effect.
Recognised in a number of national awards, Tudor’s traditional tiles have been twice winners of the best roofing category of the Build it awards (2014 & 2018), for both its standard ranges of peg and plain tiles and its bespoke tile making capability. The company also scooped a win in the 2018 Pitched Roofing Awards for the magnificent roof at King’s College Music School, Wimbledon.
All Tudor’s handmade clay roof tiles are made in accordance with BS EN 1304:2013 and tested to BS EN 538:1994 for strength and to BS EN 539-2:2013 for frost resistance.
