Advantages of Spanish Tile


1- - Channels close completely, which provides extra waterproofing.

2- Curved structure provides perfect aesthetics to the roof. This is a unique feature which no other roofing material has, making this product commonly preferred by customers.

3- It hardly shows dust and dirt thanks to its smooth surface.

4- Water intrusion through nail holes is impossible.

Installation

1. During tiling 30 cm distance must be left between the first and second laths, while remaining laths must be laid with 33.6 cm intervals. However, to be sure, lath interval should be determined on site after tiles are brought to the construction site.

2. First lath must be 4 cm high, while remaining laths must be either 2.2 or 2.5 cm high.

3. Granada tile is installed at the left side of the eaves, by means of a bottom-up level line or screed. After the first vertical line is completed, remaining lines must be completed with the same system either.

4. Tile installation must be conducted from right to left. Interlocking part under right side of each tile must be closely integrated into the channel of the next tile. Interlocking parts of tiles on the upper line must be properly integrated into the channels of the bottom line tiles.

5. Tiles from the sloped gutter and roof ridges must be laid, after they are properly cut by the help of a spiral. High strength adhesives must be used to fix parts of tiles which are cut along the eaves line.

6. When tiles are laid on roof sheathing on the rafter (continuous sheathing such as wood or OSB), it is necessary to ventilate under tiles. Deformation may occur under surfaces of unventilated tiles due to condensation. Vertical lathing is carried out on cold roofs with 50 cm intervals, while channel, thermal insulating board is used on warm roofs to ensure ventilation under tiles. Insulating tape, which is vapor permeable, is used under roof ridges, so that air can properly circulate under tiles.
