TILED PITCH ROOFING
Clay Tiled Pitch Roofing
Clay tiles, along with peg and hand-made tiles, are often required when we’re working in a conservation area or on a historic property. These traditional products create very desirable roofscapes and have been in production since 1666 and the Great Fire of London. It was at that point that standards were introduced for the first time. Today, the standard size for this kind of tile would be 265mm x 165mm and they come in a variety of orange and brown colour variations. So if you want a long-lasting, environmentally friendly roof, which fits in closely with the historic surroundings of your local area, clay tiles are an ideal option. With qualified roofers from Framework on the case, the installation won’t take long and you’ll find there’s little ongoing maintenance.
Peg tiles – for old Dutch barns and churches
Sometimes, when we take clay tiles off church roofs, we find they’re still in good shape – even after a century of use. Peg tiles are very similar and also made from clay. The only difference is that they have two holes in the top which can accommodate a metal or wooden peg, as opposed to the ‘knib’ of the clay tile which hangs on to the roofing baton. You might choose to use peg tiles to fit in with the character of your local area – particularly if you’re roofing an old Dutch barn or church.
Plain tiles – for more modern housing developments
Usually made from concrete or clay, plain tiles are often incorporated into modern housing developments. They come in a range of colours and materials and are very durable. You can use them to help match your local environment or meet planning regulations.
