Why choose Handmade Clay Tiles?
Handmade clay roof tiles are widely renowned for being a class above the rest. Where machine made tiles and “hand crafted” tiles do have a place in the roofing market, genuine handmade clay tiles set themselves apart with their breathtaking character and variation. Handmade tiles purposely lack uniformity to bring unique character to every roof they cover. No single tile is the same. Handmade tiles are made using techniques passed down through the ages, these techniques cannot be replicated by machines, though many have tried, but failed.

How We Make Our Handmade Tiles
At Spicer Tiles we make each tile by hand. Gifting each tile with its own individual character and perfect imperfections, including the makers’ fingerprints. Each worker makes 1000 tiles per day. After the making process, the tiles then go into the drying room where they are dried for up to 4 days to bring them to below 5% moisture. Once this process is complete, the tiles are ready for firing. The main benefit of crafting each tile by hand is the outstanding aesthetics that come along with it. It is our belief that uniformity in tiles doesn’t allow a roof to stand out as it should. After all, the roof is one of the main focal points when you first notice a property. NOTHING makes a roof stand out from the crowd like a handmade clay roof tile.
