Looking For A
There is a lot more to a roof tile than its material, like the profile of the roof tiles, its size and its color.
A Replacement Is Good Enough Now!!
You know what will make your search a lot easier? Bringing along a sample of the kind of roof tile you are looking for. It would also make our jobs much quicker. The information about the tile is written on its back which is quite important in understanding its dimensions and nature.
We at Roof Tile Recyclers promise to get you a good enough replacement for the roof tile that you have, even if the color may vary a little. It is better to focus more on getting the right kind of roofing tile than getting the right color. The key point is that quality trumps over looks of the tile, always. And if you are still worried of how the tile might look in terms of color, you can use it on a blind side or a flat roof where they are not visible. This is only if you do not find the right match in terms of color.
Always try to bring a sample tile with you, it makes both our jobs that much easier. It also increases the chance of you finding the exact match of the tile that you are looking for. This is especially important in case of terracotta tiles as they come in all shapes, sizes and colors. If you do not have a sample tile, at least try to bring a clear photograph of the tile both front and back. Also, do not forget to jot down the measurements.
If you are in search of concrete tiles, it is much better to carry a sample tile with you. It is because concrete tiles are very particular when it comes to sizing and profiling. Even two similar looking tiles may have quite different profiles and sizes as you turn them over to find the information given there. We do not want you to go home with the wrong type of tile, as it can look like a sore thumb sticking out if not chosen correctly.
Let’s take the case of these two images. On the left side both the tiles look almost similar. You can tell no big difference between the two of them. But on the right side as you turn them over you can see that they belong to two different companies, and have different profiles and sizes. So always bring a sample.
Terracotta tiles look all the same most of the time. They have almost the same colour and hence the customers skip the part where they carry along a sample of the tile. Do not let the tiles fool you, because back in the day, the terracotta tile manufacturers made tiles in all kinds of profiles, shapes and sizes.
Having a sample tile will help us to set you up with an almost identical match, even if we were not able to find an exact match for it. As shown in this image, both the tiles look almost the same on the left side. But on the right side they are turned upside down. You can see that they are from a different company, have different profiles and probably have different sizes too.
How to measure the width of a roof tile?
Carefully observe the pictures given on the left and right side. While measuring the width of a concrete or terracotta roof tile, always keep in mind to leave out the watercourse.
How to measure the length of a roof tile?
When it comes to measuring the length of a terracotta or a concrete roof tile you can measure from the top to the bottom without leaving anything out.
