The Roof Hospital: Throwback Thursday! Eric from Roof Hospital discusses Concrete and Clay tile roofs in this video from our YouTube Channel, check it out! http://goo.gl/OkmDSV

cipriano aquivaldo: Can u do this to a shingle type a roof?

hazrul nordin: talk to0 much. 

The Roof Hospital: Eric talks about concrete tiles. He explains some of the materials and how concrete tiles works and is installed. This house Includes vented eaves troughs, and is a roof replacement project in Calgary. Take a look: http://goo.gl/D5qzZ3

The Roof Hospital: You bet! There are little holes moulded into the tile during fabrication which have just enough room to fit a nail through. The trick is to ensure your hammer doesn't accidentally hit the tile while aiming for the nail! A circular head hammer (as opposed to a square head hammer) helps a lot with accuracy in this way.

The Roof Hospital: Hey Tomas, you know, from what I've seen, "yes", anything seems to go with roofing in general and specifically so with concrete tile. Depending on where you live and what your local by-laws are, roofing can be very regulated or not regulated at all. In my area, there is very little regulation, meaning that literally anyone can call themselves a pro, and this results in some bizarre problem solving ideas tested out on different roofs...c'est la vie!

The Roof Hospital: I understand your concern. Regarding weight load capacity, an engineer is the most qualified person to answer this. Typically, most homes can be built to sustain the weight of any roofing type, however the home would indeed need to be designed specifically for the weight, and this is where the engineer comes in handy. On another note, in my area, there are "light weight" tiles which are as the name states, much lighter. Check your local supplier to see if this is an option for you. :)

Rolf Joy: Cheers for the vid. Iam learning more all the time how some houses are built cheap by not using the protection layer bet. the tiles and roof. Whats it made of? Also the shaped air vent things beneath the first tiles. Also whats the secret to nailing tiles without cracking? lol I'd like an accurate account of how many tiles should be nailed. some say every 2nd one,every 5th & some are telling me just a couple per row. Also, what's the secret to nailing the tiles to the roof without cracking? lol

Gainesvilleroofing: thanks for the concrete tile info Eric

Anthony Sandolo: Good video Eric. Wish these roofers in Florida would see your video. They got no clue !! So you get ma new roof every 8-10 years.....YEAH !!!

Martyn Sawing: Hello Eric. Actually I am Martyn's wife. I am worried about my husband's construction as it is his first house. At first we wanted to use metal trusses with metal roofing but metal roofing cost much more, so now we thought of using metal trusses with clay tile roof, but then we are scared that the metal trusses might not carry the clay tile roof. Actually, I don't like the straight metal roofing, I prefer the curved type. (The straight metal roofing cost RM5,000 compare the curved RM8,000)

The Roof Hospital: Hello Andrew, your very welcome and I am happy to see you found value in the video. The concrete tiles used in my more northern area, Calgary Alberta Canada, are of a different composite than in your area, and I am not particularly familiar with products in your area. I do know however that a company called Decra Tile, (steel panels mimicking regular tiles) is a strong product, however is very difficult to do any maintenance on which is why I do not recommend them. Nice product though.Cheers!

The Roof Hospital: Hello, and sorry for the late reply. Here in Calgary, I work with the supplier called Unicrete Building Products, unicrete.com, I suggest you contact them and see what sort of supply chain they have out in your area. Hope this helps!

Tomas Jujitsu: have you ever heard of anyone using asphault with some of these hips and ridges ? Im not talking about shingles but the stuff you actually use in the road and drive ways ... im in south america at the moment

Thomas Williams: nice

j campos: erick how i can get the concrete tile i live in indianapolis in

moedem: Outside in the garden maybe?

The Roof Hospital: You're welcome! :)

Andrew Helton: Thanks Eric, I've got 35yr old concrete Monier Villa tile on our house here in TN and I'm going to have to have some roof work done soon. The only problem that I've had with it is when a tree branch falls and cracks one of them. I'm going to fix the tree problem first but I'm looking into the synthetic tiles, have you had any experience with those? I received some powder coated stainless tile samples but they seem a little flimsy.

Martyn Sawing: Yesterday night, I ask my husband how to stick the tile roof together. He said by nails. Then I laughed and said that the tile will crack if nailed. Eric, I saw nails on your tiles. U mean there are little holes on tiles for u to nail them in? I thought tiles are stick together with cement or some kind of silicon(cement).

Tomas Jujitsu: I guess , Its its oil based then its probably water proof , asphault , now how would I go about heating it up ?

Tomas Jujitsu: im living in brazil now and im sorta scratching my head as in if anything really goes when working with these roofs ... I've seen concrete just slapped over the cracks , asphault , hot tar with flashing and more tar .... Im trying to find information on how to work with this asphault . It looks like they melted it some how when they capped off their hips and ridges ? I saw some videos on how to make your own clay roofing tiles .. You could call a store that sales ceramic products

The Roof Hospital: You bet ;) when installed properly, concrete tile will typically outlast most roof styles.

The Roof Hospital: Well, the most common type of roofing product in my particular area (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), is an asphalt shingle. Since asphalt is oil based, and since oil is expensive, the best grades of oil are used for jet fuel etc, then vehicles, then all the way down to road construction. Typically, it is the same quality of oil used for road construction as is used for roofing. Does this answer your question?

freemancarl: Wise choice of roof. Good Investment. CONCRETE FTW! CHEERS! :)

The Roof Hospital: You're welcome, glad to help!

The Roof Hospital: You're very welcome!!!
