Clay Rooftile SPANISH CLAY ROOFTILE

Its Short History Terra cotta roofing tiles and clay roofing is perhaps the most ancient of historical building materials. Spanish clay roof tiles are descended from a style that was popular in ancient Rome; this style of roofing is still common in Spain as well as anyplace on the globe that was touched by Spanish influence, including Morocco, the Philippines, Mexico, most of South America, the Caribbean and of course, former Spanish colonial possessions in present-day California, Louisiana and Florida.

What Are Spanish Clay Roof Tiles? Sometimes known as “mission tiles,� these predominantly terra-cotta roofing tiles are generally quarter-round tubes that have ridges etched into them for directing rainwater off the roof while allowing them to be securely interlocked into place. There are also what are known as barrel roof tiles. Formed into a half-round shape, barrel roof tiles are like a half-round tube, and may be installed in alternating vertical rows of convex (outer curved side up) and concave placements. This is yet another unique type of spanish roof tiles, but barrel roof tiles are less common than the quarterround mission style of roof tile.

artfix company profile 2013

Every region has its own unique style of roofing, and Spanish roof styles are no exception. While terra cotta roofing tiles are common around the world, the shape of roofing materials in each of these regions is unique. Spain has been subject to numerous and diverse cultural influences over the course of its 3,000 year history; repeated invasions and settlements by Celts, Greeks, Phoenicians, Romans, Goths from Scandinavia, Berbers and Arabs created a unique and vibrant culture that is reflected in the appearance of Spanish roof tiles.

Spanish Clay Roof Tiles: Today Mission, round and barrel roof tiles are all various kinds of kiln-fired roof tiles that you can purchase for your own home today. The only things to keep in mind are: (A) climate and (B) the structure of the home. In addition, Spanish clay roof tiles are much heavier than comparable composite or even cedar roof shingles, and not all homes are built to withstand the added weight.

Turret Finally, it’s important to understand that installation of these fine tiles requires a great deal of skill and patience. It is a job that is best left to experienced professionals.

Why Use Clay Roof Tiles? CLAY ROOF TILES BENEFITS / ADVANTAGES

When selecting roofing materials, more and more people are turning to clay tiles for their quality, durability, long life, and varied styles. Clay tiles have many advantages and just might be the right choice for your next roofing project.

Both Ancient and Modern Clay has been used as a roofing material since before the dawn of civilization. The clay products commonly found at archeological sites can be thousands of years old, and are a testament to the durability and long life of clay-two excellent qualities in a roofing material. Because clay tiles come in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and styles, you are likely to find a tile that suits your structure perfectly.

Insulating Properties

artfix company profile 2013

One of the advantages of clay tiles that has kept them a staple for centuries is the ability of clay to insulate, keeping inside temperatures warm in winter and cool in

18

summer. Combined with a natural ability to reflect, instead of absorb, heat from the sun, clay tiles can reduce the energy required to maintain comfortable temperatures in your home. Clay roofs are very common in the American Southwest, where staying cool is in many areas a yearround battle. An additional advantage is that clay tiles allow air to circulate both above and below them, creating an insulating cushion of air between the tiles and the roof deck that further increases the insulating ability of the roof as a whole.


artfix plaster and tiles contractor

Superior Durability The durability of clay tiles is not to be underplayed. In addition to their long lifespan, clay tile roofs require little maintenance aside from clearing off leaves and debris seasonally. Clay roof tiles are fire-proof, as well as being impervious to the kinds of rot, mold, and water damage that can destroy other roofing materials. They are insectproof and, depending on the specific tile you select, are resistant to damage from freezing and thawing.

Weather Resistance Weather resistance of clay roofing depends partly on the structure itself. Factors like the pitch of the roof determine how well the tiles perform in rain, snow, and ice. If you live in a rainy climate where you need a tightly waterproof roof, make sure you pay attention to the underlayment and carefully seal the roof deck against moisture. Because clay tiles have such a long life, a high quality underlayment is a good idea. You don’t want to be stuck with a great clay tile roof sitting on top of a layer that’s not built to last.

Roof Problems COMMON ROOF TILES PROBLEMS

It is often said that clay tiles have a limited life of up to 60 years or thereabouts. However, walking around the countryside you will often come across peg-tiled roofs that are several hundreds of years old, so this is clearly not a reliable guide. The failure of the tile itself will depend on many different factors, including the original manufacture, the make-up of the material within the tile and its firing in the kiln.

Other factors are: 66 Orientation of a building, the steepness of the roof and indeed the microclimate around the building. Clay tiles are best used on roof pitches of 40째 but some single lap tiles can be used down to 25째 pitches. 66 Tree branches brushing up against the roof covering and dislodging or breaking tiles, climbing plants being allowed to grow over and into tiling to dislodge and damage it, and clumsy workmen treading on the tiles. 66 Harbour lichens and mosses. These plants should not necessarily be regarded as harmful. Although lichens produce acidic secretions and moss can hold moisture and lead to frost damage. 66 Failure of battens (rot, woodworm etc) 66 Failure of the batten fixings (nail corrosion) 66 Deterioration of the tile fixings (rotting pegs, corroding nails or crumbling torching) 66 Failure of or defects to the roof frame
