1 To lay a plain tile roof you need 3 types Plain TilesTo lay a plain tile roof you need 3 typesof tile. Most of the roof is covered withstandard tiles.Typically 165mm wide, 265mm longTo stagger the tiles in each row orcourse you will need Tile-and-a-half tiles.Plain tiles are laid double lap. Inother words there are always twolayers of tile covering the roof. Thereare three layers over the battens.To maintain the double lap at eaves and ridge youwill need shorter tiles, 200mm or so is typical.(Some manufacturers produce slightly different tilesfor eaves and ridge.)
2 At the top of the roof a shorter tile will be required Stage 1. Lay under eaves course and nail all tilesStage 2. Break bond with tile-and a half, lay standard tiles, nail all tiles.Stage 3. Lay normal next course or row, only nail verge tile.Stage 4. Repeat Stage 2 - but only nail verge tile.Stage 5. Repeat Stage 3 - and every 5th course, nail all the tiles .At the top of the roof a shorter tile will be requiredto keep the double lap under the ridge tile.next slide..
3 Looking ‘end on’ you can see the double lap on the tiles.The bottom course is slightly shorter,otherwise it would project slightly.The top course use shortertiles to keep the double lap.Notice the tile-and-a-half tostagger the joints.nextslide..
4 End Plain tiles can also be used as a cladding. In this, good quality work, notice how the tiles ‘flair’ at each side.Thisis known as Winchester cutting and is a very skilled job.End
