Product Options


  • Edwardian Blend: Mix of three colours - brown, red and orange, all with a streak in the tiles which gives a random effect across the whole roof when laid. Gives the effect of traditional clay colours with the benefits of a concrete tile.
  • Elizabethan Blend: Mix of three colours - brown, orange and red with a streak through the tiles to give a random effect. Brown is the majority colour; the orange and red blend gives a traditional varied clay colour look.
  • Georgian Blend: Mix of three colours - brown, orange and red, with a random streak through the tiles which gives a mottled effect similar to traditional clay plain tiles. Can be enhanced by also blending the associated plain tile fittings on both pitched roofs and vertical tiling.
  • Jacobean Blend: Mix of three colours - brown, dark grey and red which have a streak through the tiles which gives a random colour effect to look like a traditional clay tile, with the benefits of a concrete tile.
  • Victorian Blend: Mix of two colours - dark grey, and a brown with a streak effect in the tiles to create a random look giving a mottled colour effect across the whole roof.
  • Windsor Blend: Three plain tile colours to match in with existing clay plain tile roofs in the South East of England to create a weathered look.
