Clay Roof Tiles: The Most Durable Roofing Material
- Roof tiles are designed in such a way that the tiles protect the house from rains. These tiles are primarily made up of locally available materials such as terracotta or slate. Sometimes, modern materials such as concrete and plastic are also used. Some clay tiles also provide a waterproof glaze. Roof tiles are 'hung' from the framework of a roof with nails. These tiles are usually hung in parallel rows, with each row overlapping the row below it to exclude rainwater and cover the nails that hold the row below.
- Clay roof tile is one of the oldest roof tiles available in the market. These tiles are made from different types of materials such as clay, cement, and ceramics; and are either flat shaped or arc shaped. Clay roof tiles are largely used in residential and commercial applications.
- Roofs made from clay roof tiles offer strong protection for houses against weather (including wet conditions). Clay roof tiles are expected to provide a service life of up to 150 years. These tiles are durable, attractive, and cost-efficient. Furthermore, their color does not fade over time.
