Keymer Heritage creates bespoke roofing products for conservation and restoration projects, providing a specialised design and manufacturing resource to make tiles and fittings that are no longer in mainstream production.

Old designs can be copied to match original tiles and fittings, sometimes from no more than a drawing, using manufacturing methods which ensure the finished product will meet the highest standards.

Heritage, in relation to roofing, can be defined as a style of roof tile or fitting found on historic structures that is no longer mass manufactured. Whether it involves buildings of national heritage or local interest, the specification of ‘lost’ roofing materials presents a problem when replacement is necessary.

Heritage roofing projects deal with the bespoke replication of historical roof profiles and features in order to maintain the original beauty of a period building. Use of reclaimed materials is often impractical due to the need for a high-quality roof covering and absolute authenticity in relation to particular buildings.

Case studies


Are your tiles only for use on old buildings?

No, we have a growing portfolio of projects, where architects and specifiers require a softer tone to a new-build or development. Keymer premium handmade tiles are the `go to’ tiles of choice for these types of project.

Have your tiles been used on any famous buildings?

We have supplied tiles for some of the UK’s finest buildings, such as the Tower of London, Kensington Palace, Windsor Castle, Leeds Castle, Dover Castle to name just a few. We have also supplied tiles for some of the finest buildings both historic and contemporary, throughout the UK, Europe and North America.

I’ve been offered some second hand tiles – is this a good idea?

Generally, there may be nothing wrong with second-hand tiles. They give an instant aged look to a roof but they were originally taken off a roof for a reason. There is no lasting guarantee with the tiles, their durability and quality is unknown and they can cost just as much as a new handmade tile.
