Hanging tiles are an excellent way to add value, character and individuality to both new build and the restoration of older styled properties.
The tradition of hanging roofing tiles vertically, particularly on the first floor and upper storeys of buildings, goes back to the late seventeenth century, when they first started appearing in the south of England.
Even now, they are a popular and creative way of enhancing homes with a touch of ‘olde world’ charm.
With their distinctive double camber and time weathered appearance, Tudor’s vertical tiles are ideal for traditional or heritage styled properties, where they can be combined with a choice of decorative and ornamental tiles, to create a stunning feature.
Alternatively, they are an excellent way to add character to modern properties, which may already have ordinary and unprepossessing machine made clay or concrete tiles on the roof.
When used over brickwork, hanging tiles can also help cover some of the irregularities in the walls, minimising rain penetration and increasing thermal insulation.
Tudor’s ‘conservation’ and ‘traditional’ nibbed plain roof tiles are available in five mellow tones: Medium Antique, Dark Antique, Red Antique and the classic Sussex colours of red or brown, plus our new Jubilee range where two colours are mixed on each tile.
