All about ceramic tiles

Ceramic tiles are quite popular in European countries. Such a roof with red tones can often be seen in countries such as Germany, Switzerland, Yugoslavia. Ceramic tile is an environmentally friendly roof of natural production. It is made of clay, which is first brought to the desired consistency, enclosed in molds, dried and, finally, fired. Also, before firing, a glazed mass is applied to it, which, after temperature treatment, gives the tile shine and performs a protective function.
Ceramic tiles are extremely diverse:
Single - wave
Two - wave
Ceramic tiles: advantages
1. Excellent resistance to different types of exposure. These are temperature changes, solar radiation, as well as immunity to chemicals contained in the atmosphere.
2. The ceramic tile, made using glaze, is characterized by increased protection from moisture. Therefore, it has excellent waterproofing – without absorbing moisture, it reliably protects the house or any other building from dampness.
3. Noise insulation. The roof of such a material perfectly suppresses external noise. Thanks to this, a comfortable silence will always be maintained in the room, even with precipitation.
4. Such a roof is able to "breathe", which contributes to the creation of an ideal internal microclimate. This property is available to it due to the fact that it is made from natural raw materials.
5. Ceramic tiles, due to their very low thermal conductivity, do not overheat under the influence of sunlight. And this, in turn, eliminates the occurrence of condensation.
6. It has unique thermal insulation properties. Keeps cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather.
7. Its service life is impressive – about a hundred years. It is fire-resistant, prevents the spread of fire. Perfectly and without changes retains its appearance throughout the entire service life.
8. It has excellent decorative properties.
9. Not whimsical – does not require special efforts and investments for maintenance and care.
Ceramic tiles: cons
The ceramic tile also contains some disadvantages that create difficulties during its installation:
1. The considerable weight of this roof can create a significant additional load on the structure, which increases in winter with snowfall.
Decision: For this roof, the crate should be performed more often, that is, it is made in a reinforced version, and you should also choose an appropriate slope that would not prevent precipitation from being delayed on the roof. But its considerable weight makes it resistant to strong gusts of wind, which turns this disadvantage into a plus.
2. Installation of the roof is carried out only manually, its mechanization is not possible.
3. If the ceramic tile has been poorly fired, then this will dramatically worsen its thermal insulation properties. This is due to moisture that can be absorbed into the pores of the tile.
Solution: Choose the material more carefully.
4. The considerable price of installation work associated with the difficulties of installing such a roof.
Ceramic tiles: about installation
The installation of ceramic tiles should definitely be carried out only by qualified specialists, professionals in their field. Only they, with their skills and experience, can do it appropriately.
After all, high–quality installation is a guarantee of long service life! DeFi farming at
