Our skilled craftsmen have an unrivalled depth of experience to create bespoke clay pieces  for the most demanding and prestigeous roof restoration projects.

Dreadnought are the only brick and tile factory in the UK that specialises exclusively in clay products and because of our extensive expertise we are able to match almost any clay tile colour.  Send us a sample of what you would like to copy and we will provide a solution that meets your requirements.

If you are a heritage professional and you would like to find out more about traditional clay roof tiles, we are holding a number of special Conservation and Heritage Days at our works in Brierley Hill.  Interested?  Find out more here>>

Tile MatchingChurch special fittings

Dreadnought tiles are the closest match for various discontinued tiles or tiles manufactured by companies no longer in existence.  In addition many current manufacturers have changed their plants so they can no longer match their own traditional colours.

Examples of tiles which Dreadnought can match are: Broseley, Rosemary (from the now demolished Cannock factory), Leighswood and Daniel Platt. View a full list of discontinued tiles that Dreadnought can match.

In this image, special fittings were made by hand to match the originals on the church spire.

Bespoke OrnamentalsNew bespoke finial

In addition Dreadnought are able to reproduce complex ornamental designs.  Again all we need is a sample or a design and we can provide you with an estimate and designs for the copy to match.
