Roof Repairs Pretoria

Tile roof explained
Just like any rooftop covering, Roof tiles are designed mainly to keep out rain. Traditionally made from locally available materials (terracotta or slate), modern materials (concrete and plastic) are more commonly used because of cost factor.
Roof tiles are fixed to the roof structure by hanging/staging them and get fixed with nails. Usually in parallel rows and with upper rows overlapping the lower allowing runoff. A secondary reason is to cover the nails that hold the lower row. Where pitches meet one finds roof tiles of special profiles and calls ridge, hip and valley tiles. These can either be fixed in place with cement mortar or mechanically.
