RECLAIMED BARREL TILES

The tiles we source tend to be 100 or more years old. The sizes and color of the reclaimed roof tiles are very random and mixed. They were hand made using people legs to shape them. Therefore the irregularity in sizes is to be considered a characteristic. Also the color may vary from yellowish to red with different shades to salmon to green and sometimes grey (in rare occasion). The sizes may vary from 16 ½” to 18 ½” in length, with the bigger opening ranging from 6 ¼” to 7 ½” and the smaller opening ranging from 4 ½” to 5 ½”. The reclaimed caps are not drilled and weigh between 4.4lbs and 4.8 lbs each. For Home Owners that want lighter colors then we recommend tiles from the Adriatic coast, where the local clay lends itself to a light tan roof tile We often suggest mixing reclaimed tiles on top and new (but sized matched) pan tiles (which are not seen) on the bottom is a very cost effective way of providing the desired look for a large area.
