Georgian Roof Tiles

Revival of clay roof tiles

A revival of clay roof tiles came about when architects began making use of the Italian style villa designs for properties that required this type of architecture. This breathed new life into the clay roof tile industry. Period roof tiles such as Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian roof tiles soon became a much sought after building material.

Automated machines for mass producing clay roof tiles were first patented in the 1870s, and although there remained a good deal of demand for hand crafted clay roof tiles, by the 1880s a lot more factories were starting to make use of the new machines. Here at Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd, we do use the automated process of clay roof tile manufacture, but revert back to the handmade method for our traditional Georgian roof tiles amongst others.

Clay roofing tiles took a further hit in the fashion stakes toward the end of the 19th century, but this downturn in their popularity was short lived. Before long the clay roof tile was well and truly back in demand by the early part of the twentieth century.

With the new machines being capable of extruding clay in a variety of forms and in very large quantities, clay roof tiles became readily available to more and more people, and at more affordable prices. Clay roof tile manufacturing really took off in areas that had large natural deposits of clay.

A return to traditional values with the Georgian roof tile

Another reason for the revival in clay roof tiles came when many period houses were purchased for renovation. The original roof tiles were either in a bad state of repair, or had been replaced with inferior alternatives which had a much shorter life span than clay roof tiles.

Georgian properties were becoming very popular and the desire to have them restored sympathetically meant that a high quality Georgian roof tile would be required. Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd answered that call with their range of high quality Georgian roof tiles as well as their Victorian and Edwardian range too.
