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.
