More Info on Roof Tile Slates
These are roof traditionally made from a locally available material known as slate, and designed to keep out rain. They are hung from the framework of a roof by affixing them with nails. The tiles are usually fixed in rows of parallel units, with the top layer overlapping the one below it and create a compact design that keeps out rainwater. There are also tile slates for special positions, especially where the planes of the several pitches meet. They include valley tiles, ridge, and hip tiles. These can either be mechanically fixed or pointed and bedded in cement mortar.
