Wienerberger offers the greatest choice of roof tiles in the industry, thanks to our dedication to pitched roofing. The years spent developing such a diverse range of products has helped generate the expertise needed to create both simple and complex bespoke tiles for heritage projects as economically as possible.
Our bespoke handmade tiles are also often used for contemporary building projects by architects seeking individuality. These roofing products have helped to create signature buildings which add to their surroundings and give a nod to the area’s history.
Using clay for heritage projects
Natural clay is one of the most enduring, appealing and versatile traditional roofing materials available, with its mellow appearance and ability to age beautifully. We have access to two types of clay: Wealden clay from South East England and alluvial clay from the River Humber. This enables us to manufacture replica tiles and fittings in close proximity to the source of clay used for the original roof tiles.
Our handmade tiles are air dried then fired using the latest in modern kiln technology, ensuring the highest quality colours and textures.
Working in collaboration
Our team has the resources to design and develop bespoke roofing products to exact standards. Working closely with all interested parties, care and attention to detail has become the trademark of our heritage work. We frequently work with organisations such as the National Trust and Historic England.
We understand that restoration projects are often subject to strict regulatory constraints and criteria that demand products which are genuinely ‘like for like’, so we collaborate with project teams to make sure that the finished result meets these expectations.
