Dreadnought's True Clay Colour
Dreadnought plain clay roof tiles provide unrivalled quality and permanent natural colours, manufactured without surface stains or additives. To judge a naturally coloured tile, examine the underside and observe whether the colour is the same as on the surface. If it is not, examine the surface treatment carefully.
Dreadnought offer the widest range of natural plain clay roof tile colours in both smooth and sandfaced finish. The colour pallet range covers mono colours such as Staffordshire Blue or Plum Red and also multi-coloured clay roof tiles tiles such as Brown Antique, Country Brown and Red/Blue Blend.
By mixing plain clay tiles of different colours together, an individual more complex effect can be achieved. The organic nature of the colour in Dreadnought Tiles is what makes the mixing of colours so successful. You don't get a stark pattern, instead the colours blend in subtle grades across the roof.

Each tile is naturally coloured through careful control of the kiln ensuring that the colour is as durable as the tile itself. There are no added surface pigments or dyes, this ensures the permanence of the colour. As the colour is generated naturally colour variations will occur between tiles and within tiles, this will also be the case with fittings and gable tiles (tile and a half).
To fully appreciate the appearance and quality of the tile you should see a sample, make sure you turn it over to fully appreciate the difference of a genuine Dreaadnought natural colour.
