About Plain Tiles
The plain tile is a premium rectangular flat tile measuring a standard size of 265mm x165mm which was set by King Edward iV in 1477 and is the same today. Traditionally handmade, giving every little plain tile its own character adding a rich texture to the roof in both colour and shape, with a single or double camber, however due to manufacturing developments more commonly plain tiles are machine made to have a hand made appearance with a reduced cost.
Plain tiles are laid in a broken bond pattern and are double lapped, due to their size, the number of tiles per m2, the weight, and the labour required is much greater than an alternative larger tile.
