Many of these roofs now need replacement and Redland has introduced Postel to provide a close visual match for the original product.
Postel is a small format profiled clay tile with a distinctive single roll (“fine cornet”) aesthetic and can be installed on low pitches with gauge variability.
Postel is an interlocking tile, giving the convenience of fast installation with the aesthetic of a traditional tile range. It is being introduced into the UK market as a red tile with random brindle patterning.
Postel is available in main tiles and left hand verge tiles and a compatible ThruVent Tile is available for roof space ventilation and mechanical and soil pipe venting. Postel is available through merchant stockists immediately.
