Roof tiling is designed mainly to keep out rain,snow and sleet and tiling is traditionally made from locally available materials such as terracotta or slate.
Modern materials such as concrete and plastic are also used and some clay tiles have a waterproof glaze. Roof tiles are 'hung' from the framework of a roof by fixing them with nails. The tiles are usually hung in parallel rows, with each row overlapping the row below it to exclude rainwater and to cover the nails that hold the row below. There is also roof tiling for special positions, particularly where the planes of the several pitches meet. They include ridge, hip and valley tiles. These can either be bedded and pointed in cement mortar or mechanically fixed. Below is a picture of a tiling job showing the components of a tiled roof and the frame underneath the tiles.
