To achieve this shade the tiles are manufactured using a grey through-coloured concrete over which an acrylic paint finish is applied to all surfaces. The result is a much deeper and darker grey than that achieved with pigmentation alone.
This year has seen Redland launch a number of tiles in the Charcoal Grey colour following a rise in demand. The addition of this colour to the Plain Tile range means small roofs such as bays and porches, along with vertical tiling, can now be tiled in a colour that matches interlocking tiles on a main roof.
