Tudor Roof Tiles 2018 Brochure
Now available to view and download from the Tudor website, the new 2018 brochure uses QR codes to direct you to the more comprehensive technical, gallery, etc. web pages.
The previous brochure is also available to download, which contains more roof photos, and is still relevant for the less internet savvy people (such as myself).
Standard paper copies are available on request.

New to Tudor
Responding to our customers who want a hip that sits closer to the other hips (less cement between them), Tudor has developed the ‘Eyebrow Hip’ tile.
Available initially as ‘made to order only’ this hip tile can be supplied in all 10 colours currently produced at Tudor Roof Tiles.
Tudor Roof Tiles are proud to be members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen – in recognition of the skills of our hand-making staff.
Member Profile: Tudor Roof Tile Co Ltd
Tudor Roof Tiles are well known by architects and listed building advisors for the bespoke size and shape service.
From initial concept and the technical drawing (image 1), a clay model is made (image 2). This is to confirm both the drawing and Tudor’s ability to make as required.
Then our staff make each tile by hand, but approximately 10% larger as this allows for shrinkage that happens during the drying and firing.
Each tile is dried for 5 to 6 days until completely dry. Sitting in special trays, which are made specially for each particular bespoke job, keeps the tile in shape until drying is finished (image 3).
The tiles then go into the kiln which after firing to 1100 degree centigrade they are inspected by quality control before going out to the customer (image 4).
If all is correct, the tiles fit perfectly on the roof and our job is done (image 5).
