Handmade Clay Reclaimed Peg Tile

When it comes to giving your roof a different look from the more normal machine-made effects, handmade clay peg tiles are a fantastic choice. With their many variations in texture and shape, they give your property more of an “old world” vibe rather than a sleek modern aesthetic.

Excavation shows that clay peg tiles laid to a double lap have been used to cover roofs all over England since even before the Norman Conquest. Most of these early tiles were created in the Midlands and other areas nearby, regularly provided with two large holes to enable pegs for secure hooking.

Clay peg tiles have retained their popularity since these early times throughout the Victorian era all the way up to our modern age. This is due to their great simplicity when compared to the sophisticated modern manufacturing process of nib tiles. Not only that but the tiles also offer a visually appealing aesthetic due to their subtle variations that are very hard to repeat.

Handmade clay peg tiles are made from clay that has been prepared as a mass. A piece is then cut, hand pressed into a simple mould, then cut off with the nibs and holes formed by hand with simple manual tools.

Normally provided with two holes at the head of the tile that are formed by poking through the tile with a suitable tapered device in a way that will not split the unburnt clay. The tapered device used will facilitate a withdrawal from the clay when the hole is made enabling a wooden peg to be suitably wedged into the proper position. Aluminium pegs are often used instead of wooden ones.

Please note that while JJ Roofing has taken great care in ensuring that all information provided on these clay peg tiles is fully accurate, some variation in measurements and angles between the batches may occur. Because of this, any quoted angles and dimensions should be treated as approximate.

Additionally, we have taken time to guarantee that all the images supplied portray the colours as accurately as possible. However, due to the differing settings on various screens and devices, we are unable to guarantee that the colour will match your roof 100%.
