Clay roof tiles are suitable for both traditional and modern homes, and come in an attractive spectrum of colours, ranging from warm reds and oranges to rich blues and greys.

The material you choose for your roof plays a vital role in establishing the overall character of your home, and few materials match the warm, handcrafted appeal of clay.
