    Matt Clawson added this to Roof Materials: Get an Old-World Look With Clay Roof TilesJul 14, 2015

    OptionsClay tiles can be flat or semicylindrical, matching every old-world style you can imagine, and come in various natural clay colors that can also be augmented with kiln-fired coatings. The most prevalent clay colors are reddish and brown, but there are natural clay colors available in lighter beige and darker gray tones.Historically, tiles were stacked in a waterfall manner using concrete mortar to hold them in place, but today metal fasteners and horizontal battens are commonly used. In some cases, installation techniques such as mortar boosting replicate the charm of old-world architecture. In this process, as seen in the result here, a percentage of tiles are layered, one on top of the other, with visible mortar between, replicating the aged differentiation found on historic structures.

    Design style. Since all the material types are more or less capable of doing the job (some have benefits relating to different climates), the style of the various options becomes a key aspect that you and your architect should consider. Certain roof materials are good historical matches for certain home styles. An authentic Tuscan home, for instance, will likely want an authentic clay roof tile, although a concrete roof tile can provide a similar look at a better value.This design by Oz Architects shows an authentic clay roof tile installation. While clay and concrete roofs can look similar, a trained eye can tell them apart, with the true clay roof tile providing a more authentic, old-world look that is difficult to replicate exactly.Get more roofing design inspiration

    Weathered stone and brick adds texture and would augment the barn wood and black tin roof, in previous picture. A feature front wall or side would look fabulous.
