  • Wienerberger - Holy Trinity Church renovation chooses Sandtoft Goxhill Plain Tiles
    roof with Goxhill tiles The timber structure had to be repaired and the spire retiled Due to the complex shape of the spire this required careful craftsmanship As the church is listed and located in a conservation area it was also essential that the character of the spire was maintained by using handmade clay tiling of the same colour as the original roof The Solution Sandtoft s Goxhill handmade plain tile in Autumn Brown was selected for the project as the colour and style proved an ideal match to the original tiles dating back to the thirties Sandtoft was also chosen because it was the only manufacturer able to produce the unique large and small hip tiles required to tightly lace with the plain tiling A cantilever scaffold was erected to protect the roofs below from falling tiles and enable the architects to identify the best design strategy Measurements were taken and mock ups were produced by Sandtoft to help achieve the most appropriate shapes for the hip tiles The spire is in an exposed position so to prevent the risk of chatter the tiles were spot bedded on lime mortar Every tile was double fixed to tiling battens using copper nails fixed on a high performance breathable membrane Hips were secured at least twice with stainless steel screws and washers As the timber structure had distorted over the years the tiles were individually double cut to fit Skyline Roofing Kingston resourced the project with experienced roofers that could meet this standard To help raise funds for the refurbishment Sandtoft also arranged for 100 of its Goxhill handmade clay roof tiles to be individually inscribed with the names of parishioners who then purchased these tiles to raise money for the refurbishment The Outcome The complexity of the project has attracted

  • Wienerberger - Sandtoft Renovation in Whitechapel, London
    found in the area Such is its significance a collection of architects builders and other construction professionals formed the Spitalfield Trust in the 1970s with the aim of preserving the area s architectural gems for generations to come Sandtoft s Greenwood pantile and Goxhill plain tile Preserving heritage In 2007 the Trust acquired a number of dilapidated terraced Georgian properties on Turner and Varden Street in Whitechapel Originally built between 1811 and 1814 they had been derelict for more than 15 years In keeping with the Trust s wider aims of restoring and preserving architectural heritage they set about returning the properties to their former glory A key part of this process was the use of products sympathetic to the age and vernacular aesthetic of the original buildings To ensure the finished houses resembled their original 19th Century design and appearance as closely as possible the Trust was keen to use a mix of old and new materials including traditional handmade clay pantiles and plain tiles Quality and tradition Sandtoft s Greenwood pantile and the cross cambered Goxhill plain tile were chosen to complement the original architecture of the Georgian houses and reflect the original materials that would have been used in the early 1800s Both of these clay tiles are handmade by Sandtoft s heritage experts in much the same way as clay tiles would have been a hundred years ago from the alluvial plains of the river Humber Each craftsman has his own style which makes each tile slightly different and gives the roof a very traditional look To produce the Goxhill coloured sand is worked into the tile by hand before it is carefully moulded onto a drying support before firing To ensure consistency a tunnel kiln fires all the tiles at a constant and precise temperature
