Can I use new clay tiles for a heritage project?

Marley has the largest range of clay tiles in the UK, available in a variety of colours in single camber, double camber and hand crafted. This means that regardless of the planning constraints, we almost certainly have a solution.

Clay Roof Tiles

A traditional favourite, clay tiles have been used for thousands of years. Modern clay tiles are available in hand-crafted or machine-made formats, with the two types differing mainly in terms of look and price.

Clay roof tiles are strong and durable, and they are provided in shades of red, orange, brown and grey. Clay interlocking roof tiles usually weigh between 40 and 50kg per square metre. This means they are lighter than concrete and natural stone, but heavier than timber, natural slate and fibre-reinforced concrete.

Marley offers a variety of clay roof tile types, including Ashdowne handcrafted and Eden traditional clay pantiles. They are all made to conform to all modern building standards without losing that traditional look, and since they are compatible with our dry-fix roofing systems, installation is quick and easy.
