Discontinued Clay Roof Tiles

Over the 20th Century many Clay Roof Tile manufacturers ceased trading for various reasons and the remaining manufacturers have in many cases been consolidated into larger groups. A few independent companies like Dreadnought Tiles have continued to thrive by focusing on quality products with a difference.  For Dreadnought, focusing on natural clay colours without the use of stains or additives has been the key to their continued success.

Below is a list of clay roof tiles brand names and companies that have ceased trading and their products are therefore discontinued. 

Should you require a match to any discontinued tiles, for restoration or renovation projects, contact us to discuss your requirements and send us a sample to look at.
