The Rustic Red tile comprises a through-coloured dark red concrete body to which a random black streaking is applied to give the rustic farmhouse look. To enhance the intensity of the colours the tile is then finished with a clear acrylic coating across all surfaces and edges.
While these tiles will be available nationwide, it is anticipated that demand will be strongest in the South East of England where a tradition of using clay tiles has developed into a marked preference for weathered red colours. Rustic Red was first introduced as a colour option for Redland 49 and Plain Tiles some 20 years ago and has since grown to be one of the best selling colours for both these tiles.
Grovebury and Double Roman are both hugely popular Redland profiled tiles with Grovebury being an example of a classic, flowing double pantile and Double Roman providing a combination of subtle pans with gentle rolls. Both are favoured choices for new housebuilding as the interlocking design gives great speed of installation.
