Clay Tiles

People have been mining clay and firing it into tiles to roof their houses for centuries. In fact, there is evidence of clay being used for construction as far back as 13,000 B.C.

Our traditional-looking clay tiles have beautiful natural textures, and add a touch of warmth and handcrafted appeal to any roof. Available in an extremely wide variety of shapes, surfaces and colours, our clay tiles also serve a decorative purpose.

Concrete Tiles

Concrete tiles are made from sand, water, cement and pigments, and are not fired like clay tiles, but cured at temperatures of approximately 60 degrees Celsius. The curing process makes them sturdy enough to be transported and laid within a few days of manufacture, and they get stronger over time. Some of the very first concrete tiles, produced back in 1844 at a cement factory in Staudach, Germany, are still on roofs today.

The energy-efficient production process and long product life cycle mean that concrete tiles have a comparatively low environmental footprint. Concrete is excellent in terms of its embodied carbon, embodied energy and numerous other environmental performance indicators. As a result, concrete tiles represent a roofing solution which is highly functional, ecologically sound, and also excellent value for money.

Securement Methods

Many different types and combinations of securement methods are used for the various types of roof tile. To select a method of securement, many conditions need to be considered: wind, deck type, seismic considerations, slope, building codes, local practices and manufacturer recommendations. Fasteners should be made of noncorrosive materials that will remain serviceable in the intended environment for the roof's design life.

  • Nails—Nailing is the most common method. NRCA recommends that roofing nails be 11- gauge or 12-gauge galvanized steel or the equivalent corrosion-resistant roofing nails. Nail heads should be low-profile, smooth and flat. Shanks should be barbed or otherwise deformed for added pull-out strength. Nails should be long enough to penetrate through all layers of roofing materials and extend through the underside of the roof deck or penetrate at least 3/4 inch into wood plank or board decks.
  • Wire tie and strapping systems—Hanging tile with wire is used on non-nailable decks, insulated decks or where fastening through metal flashings needs to be avoided.
  • Clips—Nose or butt clips sometimes are used in conjunction with other attachment methods in high-wind or seismic areas.
  • Lug-hung-tile—Many types of tile have formed undersides near their heads that may be hung over a batten. Lug hanging tile usually is used in combination with other securement methods.
  • Bedding Tile—Laying tile in a bed of mortar of foam adhesive is common in some areas of North America where freeze/thaw conditions are not encountered. Bedding often is used in combination with other securement methods.
