Tudor launches bespoke peg tile sizes


Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd, Britain’s foremost independent handmade clay roof tile manufacturer, is offering a whole range of bespoke and non-standard peg tiles designed to match the varied sizing requirements of historic buildings.

Although the standard size of modern Peg Tiles is now typically 10” x 6” (255mm x 150mm), the sizes found on historic buildings tend to vary greatly, exhibiting their own regional variations.

Tudor2Tudor’s bespoke Peg Tiles, which currently range from 8” x 4½” up to 13½” x 8”, have a gentle double camber with subtle tones and textures. Made from the finest English clay, their meticulous detailing carefully recreates the time weathered look of the ancient peg tiles of Kent, which have been part of the English architectural landscape since the 13th century.

Manufactured using traditional craftsmanship, each tile is hand pressed, moulded and trimmed, and then strengthened by advanced firing techniques to give the final product exceptional performance and durability which is performance guaranteed for many years to come.

Both square and round peg holes can be made to accommodate a variety of wooden or metal pegs, making them ideal for specialised historical renovation and restoration work.

Paul Lythgoe, Managing Director of Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd said

“Our experience in hand making tiles allows us to manufacture authentic looking historic Peg Tiles with dimensional sizes that will complement a much wider range of heritage buildings than those produced to modern standards,”

Tudor3All Tudor roof tiles are CE marked to EN 1304:2005(E) standards for frost resistance, water impermeability and flexural strength.

They are available in five traditional sand-faced colours: Medium Antique, Dark Antique, Red Antique, Sussex Brown and Sussex Red, complemented by the new Jubilee ‘variegated’ colourways. Non sand-facing (natural clay) is also available on bespoke sized tiles.

Tudor roof tiles are available from leading roofing and builders merchants. For more information, contact Tudor Roof Tile Co. Ltd, Dengemarsh Road, Lydd, Kent, TN29 9JH. Tel: 01797 320202 Fax 01797 320700 E-mail: info@tudorrooftiles.co.uk or visit www.tudorrooftiles.co.uk
