Selecting ‘perfect’ Victorian tile leads to Swift sale 

  • 31 Aug 2017

Redland’s Rosemary Clay Craftsman Victorian Tile has proven ideal for Swift Roofing, as they helped sell a Kent house the same day it went on the market.

Working in tandem with its sister company, Heritage Designer Homes, Swift Roofing used the tiles for an upmarket detached house with four double bedrooms in Wigmore, near Gillingham.

So impressed was Alan Swift, of Swift Roofing, with the Craftsman tile, that he knew straight away that the it was perfect for the job, describing the colour as ‘perfect’.

“We try not to make our houses look too modern – we don’t do a standard build as we are always looking for that ‘wow’ factor,” Alan said.

“With a new tile you get the right fittings to match and a uniform colour, so it’s easier to sort out. You also get a guarantee, which you don’t get with a second-hand tile, and you have the peace of mind of fitting something you know is new and has never been used before.

“In fact, I said I wanted the tile before I’d even asked the price.”

The Victorian is the third tile in the Rosemary Clay Craftsman range offered by Redland – the UK’s leading manufacturer and supplier of pitched roof systems – and has a darker and grittier texture than either of the other two tiles. 

All three tiles in the range – Victorian, Hawkhurst and Albury – have a weathered look and give traditional roofs a greater depth of texture and character.

The tiles are versatile and can be laid on a variety of roof configurations, as there is a full range of compatible fittings and accessories.
