While roofing tiles are regularly used on modern buildings, and a tiled roof carport and tiled roof outdoor structure are now commonplace, the history of the roofing tile can be traced back a long time, in fact nearly 5000 years ago!
Back then, in Neolithic China, the first known clay roofing tiles were used. They were then used in Egypt, Greece and Rome, before the Romans introduced Europe to the tile’s durability. In fact, tiled roofs built by the Romans still exist, over 1200 year later.
While clay tiles were and still are popular in Europe, in Britain concrete and slate tiles are widely used. In Australia, the use of clay and concrete tiles is widespread.
