Clay Tiles : Salvaged & Secondhand

Historically the use of salvaged and second hand tiles has had a long history, due to their durability, and is a good example of sustainability. However, it is vitally important that old and second hand tiles are not removed from the roofs of historic buildings, as they are important evidence of local traditions. Therefore their use from elsewhere has been discouraged, to avoid their lose from their historic locations and their theft from existing buildings, which has been a widespread problem. However, if legitimately sourced from reputable companies, they can be useful in making up a shortfall for particularly sensitive locations.
