There are certain important points which must be considered while installing the clay roof tiles. For example one must be particular about the size and color selection of the tiles. Another important factor is the installation method of the tiles. Following are some important points which must be kept in mind while working with the clay tiles.

Selecting the right slope for clay tiles:

With an increase in the slope, the aesthetic value of the tiles increases and this feature makes them ideal for the roofs of cathedral style. Before you start installing the clay tiles make sure that the surface of roof is leveled otherwise the tiles will not be fixed properly. In order to level the surface of roof, apply some mortar or s thin set product.

Having the roofing underlay to optimum level:

After selecting for the slope of tiles, the next very important consideration is the decision of roofing underlay. If you are going to install the clay tiles then you must have a huge roofing underlay. The kind of material you use below the tiles as a base is very critical because on this material the whole tile structure will be based. In fact this factor is major in deciding the durability of the tiling on roof. Usually the underlay on roof is created from the roofing material with asphalt saturation's and it covers the whole area below the tiles.

You must ensure the proper attachment of the tiles with underlay otherwise you may end up in overlying of the tiles within no time after their installation. After setting the tiles, you must make sure that they are properly installed and the tiles set on the base of the asphalt mixture. This is the key point of installation of the clay tiles. While moving towards the edges it is recommended to install an extra layer of underlay on the edges of roof. This is meant for the protection of the surface of roof. If you are using No. 30 asphalt impregnated roofing felt, then use its two layer and in case of No. 43 felt, single layer is enough.

Selection of the clay tile of right kind:

This selection is made on the basis of the climate of your area, its geographical location and the over layout of the building. Generally following kinds of clay tiles are used commonly. The slate tiles are consisting of the rectangular sections in varying sizes and thickness. Plain tiles consist of the smaller sections of clay with either a smooth or sanded finish on its surface.
