All About Roof Tiles

Tiles have been around for centuries proving their long lasting style, durability and sustainability. Roof tiles are used to cover a roof which is made from a variety of different materials. These tiles made from materials such as terracotta or slates are designed mainly to keep out rain. The tiles are usually hung in parallel rows to exclude rainwater and to cover the nails that hold the row below. With natural thermal mass insulation properties, clay and concrete roof tiles contribute to the overall thermal performance and energy savings of a well designed home.

There’s an array of roof tile types available in various materials, shapes, profiles and sizes. The color and style selections can create an impression or make a statement that makes a roof stand out or blend in with the existing streetscape. Choosing a roof tile with the right surface finish is crucial to the finished appearance of the roof and how it will look in the future.
