Clay roof tiles are produced when finely powdered rock and clay are mixed together with water and other chemicals. The mixture is then pressed, molded and colored to form the desired roof tile. The tiles are then put to dry and then placed in a kiln with the temperature set on high. Although the colors red and orange are popular, there are a vast majority of colors that the tiles can be made in to. This style of tiles are considered eco-friendly and in most cases last a life time.
This work of art, seen in the picture above consists of custom, hand cut clay tiles. This particular roof top was a special request. As can be seen, there are five levels of tiles and each tile level was precisely cut to give the roof top its pristine look.
