Hand-Made Clay Roof Tiles
The County range of clay tiles are distributed solely by Raven Roofing Supplies and have been rigorously tested by CERAM building technology to ensure they comply with current UK and EU standards.
You can use the County range of handmade clay plain tiles if the pitch of your roof is between 40° and 90° and they are fixed in accordance with the British Standard Code of Practice for Slating & Tiling BS 5534: 2014. However, if your roof pitch is lower than 40°, please contact us with details of your requirements and it is very possible we can offer a solution to lower pitched roofs.
The County range of handmade clay plain tiles are used extensively across the UK on refurbishments and new builds alike. The tiles are widely accepted in Conservation Areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are regularly used on Churches, Historic and Listed Buildings, etc.
Initially designed to replicate the weathered orange tiles of the county of its name, the Handmade Berkshire is now widely used throughout the South East and West in its own right.
County Special Mixes
We can supply any combination of the Handmade colours to suit your requirements, giving you the opportunity to create your own individual and unique roof. Depending on the number of colours selected and quantity of tiles the Handmade Bespoke blend can be pre-mixed at the factory thus ensuring a totally random mix.
Although the Handmade Red is essentially one colour it has subtle shade variations caused by the traditional firing methods. Ideal for vertical tiling or for equally pitched roofing if you prefer to let the elements weather your roof naturally.
The Handmade Heather tile produces a finished roof-scape deep reds and a hint of burgundy. It is a colour that is suited to many parts of the UK, complimenting many types of cladding from natural stone to weatherboarding.
The premixed Multi blend is based on reds, heathers, and a few dark and orange tiles. The key to our flagship colour blend is the natural variations caused by traditional firing methods ensuring no two tiles are the same colour or shape and the shades merge into each other, thus avoiding that contrived look, often seen when single colour tiles are mixed on site.
A blend of blacks and browns combined with the irregularity of shape give the Handmade Restoration the appearance of an already weathered subtly textured roof.
A natural red handmade roof will, without other influences other than the British weather, eventually turn darker whilst maintaining its texture and some of its original colour variation. The Handmade Brown is designed to bypass this initial natural weathering giving an instantly mature looking new roof or indeed match into existing roofs.
Likened to the deep red of the Sussex Weald clay they are more commonly used for vertical hanging tiles, but our Handmade Orange can be used just as effectively for a vibrant roof finish or to lift a blend with other colours from the range.
Similar to the Berkshire but based on the Red, the Handmade Wiltshire has a subtle dark weathering pigment randomly added to the sand in the mould ensuring that no two tiles are the same in colour as well as shape producing an uncontrived look to your roof.
