Tudor Roof Tiles is awarded certified ‘Sign of Quality’ by the Guild of Master Craftsmen Print E-mail

Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd, Britain's foremost independent manufacturer of handmade clay Peg and Plain roof tiles, has been awarded membership by the Guild of Master Craftsmen for its skill and excellence in the art of traditional clay roof tile making.

The Guild of Master Craftsmen is the UK’s most established trade association, representing skilled and rated tradesmen, craftspeople, artisans and other professionals who strive for excellence in workmanship and customer service. All members sign up to the aims and objectives of The Guild and the logo and coat of arms are a sign of quality instantly recognised by consumers.

Tudor Roof Tiles uses traditional handmade techniques that have hardly changed over the ages. Each tile is individually hand pressed, moulded and trimmed to give its distinctive ‘olde world’ character, and then strengthened by advanced firing techniques in order to give the final product exceptional performance and durability, which exceeds current building regulations.

Made with meticulous attention to detail, these sand-faced Peg and Plain tiles clay tiles have a variable camber and an idiosyncratic weathered appearance, which blends with period and heritage properties, but will also add individuality and ‘kerb appeal’ to new build projects.

They can be made in standard or bespoke sizes, with round or square peg holes or with nibs on the underside to suit traditional or modern construction methods and they are available in a range of rustic mellow colours ranging from pale orange to dark red.

“As we are committed to giving our customers genuine craftsmanship of the highest quality, we are delighted to be joining The Guild, which is widely recognised as a symbol of excellence throughout the building industry,” said Paul Lythgoe, managing director of Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd.

Hugh Bessant, The Guild’s membership assessor, said “I have known about Tudor tiles for over thirty years and traditional building materials hand crafted by true craftsmen are part of the fabric of this country. In a mass produced world where imitating old materials is very much the norm, it is fantastic to see a company such as Tudor still producing the genuine article. I recommend them wholeheartedly.”
