Cappings and Copings Creasing tiles have long been used as a means of displacing rain water and thereby preventing dampness in walls and chimneys. They have also been used as for aesthetic effect when used to add character to brick and stone buildings. Made in the same way and to the same exacting standards as a clay plain tile, it is generally used more like a very thin brick. Tudor's creasing tiles are made with low water porosity and high strength which makes them ideal for use where water from weathering needs to be deflected, i.e. projecting drip sills. These same weather resistant properties make them ideal for use on external walls.
