Reclaimed Pan Tiles
These Reclaimed Pan Tiles are one of the oldest types of ceramic roof tiles in the UK. These pan tiles feature a large s-shaped profile with single lapping, meaning the ends only overlay the tiles in the course immediately below – creating a traditional look.
Pantiles have been around in the UK for over 500 years after first arriving from the Netherlands. Traditionally they were made out of clay but moved more towards concrete in the mid-20th century. While concrete can emulate the look of a clay pantile, the colour difference is noticeable with a direct comparison.
Advantages Of Pan Tiles:
- Pantiles can be up to a third lighter than most tiles, which is beneficial to the supporting structure.
- If concrete or clay pantiles are installed by an experienced company and maintained by the owner of the property, over time, they will continue to add real character to the building.
- If repairs are needed and are dealt with promptly then pantiles will continue to show their durability against weather conditions.
