Tudor started in 1986 at Ashford in Kent. The company has achieved its declared aim of producing authentic hand-made clay tiles of the highest quality, which are regarded by many users and specifiers as the best available. Due to growing demand for its products the company soon required more space and in 1992 moved to its present freehold site at Lydd on Romney Marsh.
All tiles are hand moulded and fittings are cut individually from the lump. Sand is then applied to the tile face giving each tile a variable colouring. This traditional process, combined with specially developed firing techniques, imparts the unique character to all the company's output.
Our customers also have the assurance of knowing that the company complies with C E Marking to British and European standard EN 1304:2013, which aims to provide for externally tested and verified quality of roof tiles. The range of tiles and fittings is comprehensive: plain tiles, eaves, gables, hips, valleys, plain and vented ridges, ornamentals, external and internal angles. In addition, we also produce traditional Kent peg tiles, eaves, gables and tapered tiles for roundels on oast houses or similar turreted roofs.
All tiles and fittings are available in the three original Tudor colours of medium antique, dark antique and red and the traditional Sussex colours of red and brown.
Our products are used on the full range of new and refurbished buildings from private residences, commercial developments, agricultural buildings, barn and oast conversions to grand historic houses, churches and other listed buildings. We have also exported to continental Europe, North America and the Far East.
