Perhaps at first it will work simply at first, but the installation of tiles is essentially a complex and demanding task that is placed before roofing masters, or more simple roofers. We will briefly point out several installation steps that require attention, in order to avoid common mistakes during the execution of the works. Logik Roofing & Insulation will give you some tips on this matter.

Roof construction

In order for the pot to be properly positioned, it is important that the roof tops and materials that make up the roof are – straight. This implies that the roof construction is done correctly because the statics and the requirements of the construction itself are concerned, then that the height points of the different parts of the roof structure that must be the same – and really the same or. The axial distance between the horns can be of different lengths, but this also pulls the different dimensions of the roof rails. It is usual that those dimensions are 3X5 cm and less than these should not be. If the axle distance is longer, then the roof rails must be of several dimensions: 4X5 cm or 5X5 cm.


The most important thing before laying the tile is to make the right angle of the line of tile handling in relation to the first roof railing at the drip. This will lead the water that flows down the tiles to the shortest path to the gutter, and not (otherwise it will occur) that the water flows over the falcon trough and its lining beneath them into the interior of the roof structure. The range of slats, or the popular “cap” for each type of tile is generally different and this has to be strictly appreciated. All manufacturers and importers today have on their websites prominent specifications of their products that are different for steep, medium or mild roofs.

It is also necessary to respect the width of the tile cover, which is easily seen in the manufacturer’s instructions for each tile model in particular. The lines of action marked by the marking on the roof battens serve to show us where exactly the width of each tile should be fixed in the width. The crevices are stretched across the width so that they neither cling or wider beyond their borders. It is our line of conduct that serves us. When the roof cover during cold in winter or heat flying begins to accumulate or expand, then the properly installed tile has a place to simply “operate or breathe” and this is then the correct roofing. This particularly applies to more precise tile models that have less tolerance in their falcon.

These are just the main details that the roofing operator is guided in when laying the tile. The more accurate and more pedantic they are, the roof will be safer and more durable, to the satisfaction of its guests and to the pride of the master who has set it up.
