Dreadnought Tiles: A Legacy of Excellence and Trust in Roofing

Dreadnought Tiles: A Legacy of Excellence and Trust in Roofing

The story of Dreadnought Tiles begins in the late 1800s, nestled in the heart of England's Black Country. Founded by the Sharratt family, the company swiftly gained recognition for producing handcrafted clay roof tiles of exceptional craftsmanship. These early tiles laid the foundation for a legacy that continues to thrive to this day.

Through two world wars and numerous technological advancements, Dreadnought Tiles remained steadfast in its dedication to traditional tile-making techniques. Their commitment to preserving heritage methods, passed down through generations, is evident in every tile they produce. As time progressed, Dreadnought Tiles evolved, combining time-honored craftsmanship with innovative manufacturing processes, resulting in tiles that not only possess rustic charm but also offer modern durability.

The Quality of Dreadnaught Products:

Dreadnought Tiles have earned a distinguished reputation for delivering outstanding products consistently. Their attention to detail, hand-selection of the finest raw materials, and rigorous quality control measures are the cornerstones of their exceptional output.

Each tile undergoes meticulous scrutiny to ensure uniformity in size, shape, and texture. The firing process, meticulously managed in their traditional kilns, guarantees optimum strength and resistance to the elements. The result is a range of tiles that can withstand harsh weather conditions, including extreme temperatures, heavy rains, and freezing winters, without compromising on aesthetics.

Moreover, Dreadnought Tiles prides itself on its commitment to sustainability. Their environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices, coupled with an emphasis on sourcing local materials, make their products an eco-conscious choice for roofing projects.
