More builders and architects are now specifying Tudor Roof Tiles Traditional range of hand made nibbed plain tiles as a high quality, authentic and cost effective alternative to sourcing expensive second hand and reclaimed tiles.
Made from the finest English natural clay, these sand faced clay tiles create aesthetically appealing textured roofs, which enhance and add value to new build projects as well as complementing older styled properties in areas of historical sensitivity.
With their instant aged, time weathered double camber and subtle variations in shape and colour, they effectively mirror the randomly individualistic look of the antique tiles of yesteryear, whilst avoiding the dull, uniform appearance associated with machine made tiles.
Combining age old craftsmanship with modern performance benefits, Tudors Traditional roof tiles are 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 made in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001:2000, and tested to BS EN 538:1994 for strength and to BS EN 539-2:1998 for frost resistance. Therefore, unlike second hand and reclaimed tiles which can be costly, and prone to rapid deterioration and breakage when re-used, Tudors Traditional roof tiles are guaranteed to perform well for many years to come.
Our traditional nibbed plain tiles are proving to be increasingly popular with builders and property owners, who require high performance and reliable products, which still capture the character and much sought after aesthetic qualities of older reclaimed tiles, said Paul Lythgoe, Managing Director of Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd.
The Traditional range is available in five mellow tones: medium antique, dark antique and red antique plus the classic Sussex colours of red and brown.
