We can produce any of our dragon finials and roof finials in bespoke colours and finishes to suit various styles of roofs and individual needs. We regularly colour match to customer tile samples sent via post to our workshop

Our previous work and case studies includes colour matching to popular roof tile manufacturers including Marley roof tiles, Wienerberger, Redland, Sandtoft, Forticrete and more. In these cases customers have already purchased roof tiles or roofing supplies from the roof tile manufacturer but need to add or restore architectural detail in the form of roof finials and need them to be in keeping with surrounding roof features, colours and detailing

When there is a need to finish finials in a specific colour or finish so that it blends in seamlessly with the roof colour matching is a good option to go for. We can colour our products to tile samples, colour samples and sometimes a manufacturers colour code (If we have done a colour match piece in the colour before). Colour matching costs £10.00 per finial and doing special two tone effects are £25.00 per finial on top of prices advertised on the website (if you are ordering multiple pieces we may offer a discount on colour matching and bespoke colour effects)

Colour finishes

In addition to bespoke colour matching by default we stock products in the antique terracotta colour but we also offer alternative standard colour finishes too. These are anthracite, slate grey and bathstone for chimney pots

Special colour effects

- Products can be finished with two tone colour effects
- The dragon sculpture or finial sculpture can be finished in a different contrasting colour from the ridge tile it is based on so it really stands out
- We can produce metallic, matt, gloss and sand textured finishes. Also many other styles can also be reproduced on request

Weathering and detail

If you need a product to have a more rustic or weathered look we can reproduce the effect on any of the products. This is useful when an existing roof features natural weathered roof tiles and fittings and a product is needed to suit the existing roof. Customers can send us a physical sample to our workshop and we can replicate weathering detail and effects
