In 2004 Lifestiles was established by co-directors Mike Chillery and David Osborn, with a mission to provide a second to none service to clients supplying aesthetically pleasing quality natural roofing products.


Success was achieved relatively quickly with the Lifestiles quality Hand Made Clay Plain Tile produced in colours and pre-mixed blends to suit most projects and geographical areas. The Ashvale Hand Crafted range of clay plain tiles was quickly added to the product offering followed by the Ashvale pantiles, Natural Slate, Natural Cotswold Stone and more recently Machine Made Clay Tiles in large and small formats. However, we will not stop there and we are currently developing the Baythorne Blend of bricks amongst other products.


Quality is always paramount in our minds when we are sourcing new products. Consequently, they are tested at Lucideon (an independent UK facility approved by both UKAS and the British Standards Institute) to ensure they meet the relevant British Standards. To back this up and give the customer further peace of mind we offer a 30 year product guarantee (see the technical section of this website).


With over 50 years of experience our staff are specialists in natural roofing solutions and have been involved with many prestigious projects over the years including projects for Oxford and Cambridge Universities, English Heritage, Royal Residencies, Private Housing for Celebrities, Listed Buildings, etc. However, much of our work involves helping with one off housing projects from large Self Builds to small extensions so please contact us with your enquiry however large or small.
