About JH Ratcliffe

J. H. Ratcliffe products have been used throughout the world, in areas such as palaces, historic buildings, shopping centres as well as countless restaurants, public and private houses.

Since Egyptian times, painters have imitated the look of naturally occurring building materials such as wood, marble and granite using paints and glazes. Traditional hardwoods and some marbles are becoming scarce and expensive to use, so it makes sense to re-create their appearance using paints. With J.H. Ratcliffe products and a splash of imagination you can create beautiful faux finishes in no time.

J.H. Ratcliffe products are manufactured in the UK by Tor Coatings from its facility in County Durham, England.
