Cpac Monier Roof tiles

Postby windrider » Sun Aug 04, 2013 8:54 pm

Hi ,,am new here but have been reading for a long time ,,
just starting to plan a build in Huay Yai ,,near Jomtien/Pattaya.

Has anyone had experience with concrete roof tiles in this area?

Welcome any comments ,,
planning a 20deg roof with a split pitch up to 40 and had tin on the last house and it drove me crazy when the storms come through, so planning to go some sort of concrete tiles for this one ,

Enjoy this forum immensely, heaps of very valuable info and tips ,,

Look forward to any replies ..thx

No I don't have any experience and idea to build the concrete roof tiles but I will suggest you to go and consult with any builder who have experience with kind of building.

20 deg pitch is close to the min value of 17 deg for Cpac tiles.

Just be sure that whoever constructs your 20 deg roof uses the correct headlap for the chosen tile which
I believe is 80mm + for Cpac. Thai constructors have a nasty habit of setting out a roof using headlaps below min value.

I know I might sound like a rep for the company, but if you want the Rolls Royce of roof tiles , get Excella ,great range of colours, Terracotta, fully glazed that are unaffected by the sun and weather over the years , with their colour never fading. Great that they always wash clean with the rain like new. More expensive than concrete, but worth it in the long run, and I have used both on past houses.

All House front no windws.jpg
Typical pitch roof (Exella Tiles) C.Pac Monier roof tiles in the background.
What ever tiles you use ,there is a min lap, the pitch again is 17 degrees min as mentioned. The low pitch is easier to walk on but more susceptible
to water being blown under and into the roof if there is no sarking. Then there is the steep pitch where there is little danger of that but the water races down maybe too fast for your gutters to handle, that's of course if you are having gutters. If you are, you don't want the bottom row of tiles sticking out too far that the water over shoots your gutter. (A common mistake with Thai roofers as they are used to NO gutters.) The obvious thing to do is to measure the length of the rafters, and divide it by the max tile cover for the setting out of the battens, they can be closer together with extra tile lap , but not further apart than the min lap. Hope that is of some help.

I have Adamas tiles on my place. They recommend 32-34 cm overlap with the tile being 40cm in length. First tile out past the fascia by 7 cm. They didn’t comment on pitch in the brochure.
