If you are looking for an environmentally friendly way of roofing your project then reclaimed roof tiles may be the answer. Over the last few years there has been a significant move over to reclaimed roofing products. These products are salvaged from buildings that are being demolished or refurbished, often schools or larger commercial buildings.

When this salvage takes place, teams of demolition experts strip all the existing roof coverings and get them to the ground, they are then cleaned of any cement, sorted and stacked on a lorry to take them to one of our depots. Once there, they are sorted for a second time, palletised and wrapped, ready for delivery on one of our crane off load vehicles.

Not only does using reclaimed material help the environment it also benefits aesthetically. Ideal for making extensions blend in seamlessly with the existing building, reclaimed material gives you an aged look from day one. It is also an option upon which local planning offices look favourably.

It is very important that you buy your reclaimed material from a reputable source where you can be sure of the provenance of the materials you buy. Come into any of our depots to check out our huge range of reclaimed tiles, slates and fittings.


Reclaimed Handmade Handmade Clay Plain Tile
These tiles are the top end of the range. As the new suggests these tiles were made by hand, giving an uneven, irregular appearance. Usually made in red or orange, by smaller independent Tilleries such as; Sussex and Dorking, Guildford Park, Keymer, Swallow, Pinewood and Warner. These are the archetypal English tile.

Another top end tile full of charachter, the peg tile is a very popular tile particularly in Kent. It typifies the English cottage look. This tile doesn’t rely on nibs to hang the tiles to the batten, they use “pegs”, these were traditionally made from oak. Nowadays a peg nail is used.

Mass produced predominantly around Staffordshire, a regular, uniform tile. These tiles were very popular during the early 1900’s and were commonly used in long terraces in major towns and cities including London, Manchester and Birmingham. Made from harder clay than handmade tiles they were mainly red or terracotta, which after a period on the roof gives a fantastic multi appearance. Manufacturers include Rosemary, Colport Brossley, Acme and Dreadnaught.

Coutrai Coutrai
An imported interlocking tile from Belgium, named after the town they were made in. There are several variations that can be simplified to three main types; single nib, double nib or wine glass (gives the appearance of an up turned wine glass on the bottom of the tile). We would need to see a sample to get an exact match.
