Re: Spanish Tile Roof

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ask the designer or owner for the answers.  This related to the amount of tile overlap.
As Truitt said I would plan on 5/8" plywood.
When I design projects with the true Spanish clay tile I usually figure 3 tiles layers and fully saturated in order to figure dead load.  That will vary between 20-30psf dead load just for the tile.
