As well as providing a safe and protective barrier against the elements, the traditional clay tiles on your roof play a vital role in establishing your homes overall appearance.
So if you are undertaking a renovation, getting the right type of roof tile is a vital part of creating a look that not only fits well with the overall design of your house, but remains in keeping with the area too. A cottage in the Cotswolds would look a little out of place with ultra modern tiles whereas it would look amazing with traditional clay tiles from our hand made range.
The amount of work required on your roof refurbishment may range from just replacing a few broken or damaged tiles to completely re-roofing the property.
There are quite a few considerations to keep in mind though, from the size, shape and what the tile is made from, to any peculiar planning considerations such as listed buildings or other special designations. The team at Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd can help you with such considerations as we go that extra mile with our customers and do more than simply sell traditional clay tiles.
Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd can also advise their customers about what type of traditional clay tiles would be required when we factor in the pitch of the roof, as some tiles may not be very suitable for builds with especially steep or shallow gradients. Our team at Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd will be happy to assist you in any way we can.

With the collapse of Roman rule in the early 5th century, London ceased to be a capital, and the walled city of Londinium was effectively abandoned, although Roman civilisation continued in the area of St Martin-in-the-Fields until around 450. From around 500, an Anglo-Saxon settlement known as Lundenwic developed to the west of the old Roman city. By about 680, the city had regrown into a major port, although there is very little evidence of large scale production.
Later many Viking assaults brought decline to London. Three are recorded; those in 851 and 886 succeeded, while the last, in 994, was stopped.
The Vikings established Danelaw over much of eastern and northern England; its boundary stretched roughly from London to Chester. It was an area of political and geographical control imposed by the Viking incursions which was formally agreed by the Danish warlord, Guthrum and the West Saxon king Alfred the Great in 886. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recorded that Alfred refounded London in 886. Archaeological research shows that this involved abandonment of Lundenwic and a revival of life and trade within the old Roman walls. London then grew slowly until about 950, after which activity increased dramatically.
By the 11th century, London was beyond all comparison the largest town in England. Westminster Abbey, rebuilt in the Romanesque style by King Edward the Confessor, was one of the grandest churches in Europe. Winchester had previously been the capital of Anglo-Saxon England, but from this time on, London became the main forum for foreign traders and the base for defence in time of war.
So if you live in London and want the very best value for high quality clay roof tiles, give Heritage Clay Tiles Ltd a call.
