Over the centuries, the use of roofing material has varied from place to place, with a diversity determined by local geography and material availability. One of the most enduring and appealing of these materials has been natural clay, which became desirable for its subtle appearance and weathering properties. Its popularity as a roof covering was enhanced by its unique ability to be pressed into a multitude of shapes and designs.
Over time, the shape and look of those buildings has altered and thus renovation as well as conservation became more important lately. Hence roof tiles need to match perfectly in order to maintain the historical character and integrity of the building. Therefore, it is essential to choose the right building material.
