slopes / pitches The minimum pitch standard recommendations should always be followed (see values in the referral table). On all pitches below the standard recommended minimums, or in regions where ice dams may occur, a waterproof underlayment on the entire deck MUST be applied. Most problems with water-shedding roof installations occur from water that migrates through the joints of the tiles through capillary action, winddriven rain, and runoff or ice damming. Because of this possibility, the underlayment is critical to the success of the roof.

Hip:

The manner in which roof tiles are installed makes them a highly effective water shedding assembly that affords years of service and protection. The effectiveness of a tile roof system as a weather resistant assembly however depends on the proper installation of all the tile roof components, and installing them properly is critical to the performance of the installed system........

*Protected locations: hollow area which is surrounded by hills that protect the hollow from the winds in all directions.

Since tile is installed across a wide range of climatic and geographic conditions, there are a variety of details that must be considered in preparing an effective installation. Local building officials should always be consulted to learn of special requirements that may exist.

*Exposed locations: Places open to strong winds, coastal areas (up to 5 km / 3 miles from the shoreline ), islands or narrow peninsulas, estuaries or closed bays, narrow valleys, isolated mountains, mountain passes and earthquake zones.

*Normal locations: Flat area, plateau with minimal elevation changes.

Fastening methods: A: Every tile should be securely fastened (Nailed, screwed, clipped, so on) (60º / 203/4:12) A

ventilation Ventilation is one of key elements to assure a good hygrothermal behavior of the roof and preservation of the roof structure. The key to a good and well preserved roof is a good ventilated roof. Proper installation of Ventilation tiles combined with ventilated roof can result in energy savings, in a more energy efficient home. Air should be able to flow through the eave and ridge; be sure not to close these off with cement, mortar or similar. Eave and ridge areas should be protected to help minimize the access of birds and vermin infiltration. A free flowing ventilation area must be provided through the roof deck. This ventilation should be evenly distributed throughout the roof space to eliminate any dead air space. La Escandella recommends a minimum of 1 interlocking Mixed ventilation tile (Q20) for every 7m2 (1.32 vent tiles per 100 sq ft.) and with a minimum of 2 ventilation tiles per roof surface, installed on the upper part of the roof. Using a proper ventilation system is the best way to avoid moisture in a roof, that could cause peeling, cracking and other defects on the tile.

Openings at the eaves and the ridge must allow for even distribution of ventilating air below the entire roof deck.

Note 1: Recommended underlayment installed over the sheathing are dependant on the roof pitch and local weather conditions. Note 2: Underlayment materials must be covered with tile as soon as possible to prevent degradation from exposure.

La Escandella warranty will be honored when installation is in strict accordance with local building codes, particularly to those referring to the ventilation of the deck and minimum slope requirements. Clay roof tiles should always be installed in full compliance with the local building codes and good tiling practice. For each country, please refer to local building codes.


laid method La Escandella interlocking “S” roof tile can be laid on a continuous frame or battens; from left to right in a straight or full bond pattern. 1. Installation will begin with La Escandella Mixed “S” left side courses (Rakes) from the eave to the ridge, allowing a 5 cm (2”) overhang at the eave. All side course (rake) tiles shall be installed with fasteners typical of the field tile installations. 2. The starter course will begin with a full tile from the eave to the ridge, allowing a 5cm (2”) overhang at the eave. The tiles structuring the eave will have to overlap the side course (rake) and fit together one to another. The second course of the tile will lay up directly over the previously installed field tile to the proper exposure and overlapping. 3. See Figure 1 for sequence of installation for fist and succeeding courses of tiles from the eave to the ridge. 4. The right section (vertical terminating end) of the roof can be finished by using either a Half (1/2) Tile -Q17- (fig.2) or a Double Tile -Q34- (fig. 3).

To avoid cutting the field tiles when reaching the ridge line, a 2/3 under ridge tile -Q36- can be used in the upper course and closed by using a Double 2/3 under ridge tile -Q38-.

installation details Check with local/state building code official for local requirement.

Ridge: Ridge tiles must be installed lap facing away from the prevailing winds, in order to assure water tightness. Field tiles at top course should be secured directly either into the deck or top batten with stainless ring screw nails or similar.

At the top course of the roof (horizontal terminating end) field tiles can be finished by using either Wedges (Q08). All ridges and hips shall be covered with self adhesive AluRoll (La Escandella Aluminum roll for hip and ridges) or similar approved breathable waterproof

underlayment. Underlayment should be secured over the ridge nailer with non-corrosive roofing nails. Apply ridge tiles with a minimum overlapping of 5 cm (2”) throughout the ridgeline facing away from the prevailing wind-driven rain.

All ridges and hips shall be covered with self adhesive AluRoll (La Escandella Aluminum roll for hip and ridges) or similar approved breathable waterproof underlayment.

Air should be able to flow through the ridge and hip area. Be sure not to close these off with mortar or similar. Closing them off could result in cracks, peeling off,... in freezing and thawing cycles.

underlayment that should be fixed by using glue, resin or similar. Where valley intersects with ridge line, apply Alu-roll Valley (or similar approved underlayment) which should be covered by the ridge tile. Valley should be extended along the eaves to overhang the fascia board by 5 cm (2”) or over the gutter. Tiles should be laid parallel to the valley line, at same relative angle

and should overhang the valley battens by at least 10 cm (4”). Tiles at each side of the valley crease should be laid to provide a minimum 15 cm (6”) width gap (tiles should held back minimum 7.5 cm (3”) from the center of the valley each way). Valley tiles must be secured. Proper Valley flashing installation is required to ensure water tightness in order to avoid cracks, peeling off,…

Hip Hip tiles must be installed in the same way as in the ridge. Field tiles must be mitter cut parallel to the hip line and secured.

Valley Both Valley and eave line channel are particularly vulnerable to water migration and leakage. Valleys should have a clear and unobstructed pathway for quick water drainage. Install valley battens on each side of the valley crease. Aluroll Valley (or similar approved adhered waterproof valley underlayment) shall be laid vertically up all valleys in addition to other required

Roof tiles should always be installed in accordance with the local building codes and good tiling practice. (Spain: UNE 136020 Code of Practice) La Escandella is not familiar with all local building codes or regional weather conditions and does not control the installation of the tiles. The architect, roofer or installer should ensure that the tiles are installed in accordance with the local building codes and good tiling practice.
