Marley’s Ashdowne range offers specifiers a cost-effective ‘hand-made’ finish

Housing Thu, Sep 3, 2020 5:14 AM

Marley has launched an enhanced Ashdowne clay handcrafted range, following manufacturing innovations.

Thanks to advancements in processing technology, the new Ashdowne tiles feature subtle distressed edges and irregularities, replicating a hand-made tile aesthetic.

As pressures around project delivery, especially budgets, intensify, the evolved Ashdowne range offers specifiers all the aesthetics associated with a unique hand-made tile but, with all the benefits and cost effectiveness of a machine-made clay tile.

Stuart Nicholson, Director of Roof Systems at Marley, comments: “There has always been high demand in the market for unique, premium clay roofs that give instant ‘kerb-appeal’. The increased variegation on our evolved Ashdowne handcrafted tile enables specifiers to achieve this bespoke look in a more cost-effective way, allowing them to create traditional warmth and individual character on every roof.

“Following a period of uncertainty for the construction industry, it’s no surprise that specifiers are heavily scrutinising costs and looking to make more cost-effective choices where possible. With growing demand for traditional handcrafted tiles, our evolved Ashdowne range provides an ideal option to reduce project costs without impacting on the overall aesthetic of the roof. With further developments to Ashdowne planned in 2021, specifiers have access to an even wider choice of clay plain tiles, with the supply and sustainability benefits from being manufactured in the UK and, part of a complete roof system, offering the reassurance of a 15 year guarantee.”

Marley’s Ashdowne handcrafted tiles have variegations and distressed edges, giving each tile a unique character. Available in two colour options - Ashurst and Aylesham Mix - the tiles can create the warmth and character of a traditional hand-made roof.
