Acme double camber clay plain tiles
One of the largest private homes ever to be built in Cheshire features Marley Eternit's Acme double camber clay plain tiles. An important consideration was the fact that planning officials had specified that the roof covering needed to be as similar as possible to the roof of the bungalow that was previously on the plot.
A total of 56,000 of Marley Eternit’s Acme double camber clay plain tiles were used on the main house, with an additional 14,000 used on the large outbuildings adjacent to it.
The client wanted something that would complement the Cheshire Red sandstone accents used on the house. Marley Eternit's Acme tiles have a smooth brindle finish, and their dappled appearance provided just enough contrast with the house whilst still being sympathetic to the rest of the building and the surrounding area.
