Selfbuilders, Richard and Jo Collings chose the Albury tile for the roof of their four-bedroomed energy efficient house in rural Warwickshire, from the Rosemary Clay Craftsman range developed by Redland.
The Albury tile has a fine orange-red sanding over the surface and random black patterning to recreate a weathered look.
It was important that the planners at Stratford District Council were happy with the appearance as the house was in a conservation area and is next to a historic church.
“We reckoned it would take two years in all, a year to get planning and a year to build and we were right overall but it took 14 months to get the planning permission,” says Mrs Collings.
The new home replaces a 1960s bungalow and its roof now complements complements that of the recently re-roofed church.
Among the eco-friendly features of the building are a heat recovery system in the roof that extracts heat from outgoing air to heat incoming fresh air and a ground source heat pump that draws heat from 85 metres below ground.
The Rosemary Craftsman range features two other tiles, all of which are versatile and can be laid on various roof configurations as there is a full range of compatible fittings and accessories. The range has textured surfaces, irregular distortions to the front edge and varying hanging lengths.
The tiles meet all the requirements of BS5534: 2014 Code of Practice for Slating and Tiling – providing Redland fixing recommendations are followed.
