Roof Tiles

They say it takes about 30,000 clay tiles to roof a Miao house (see Roof Aesthetics). And these are carried about 40 tiles at a time to the construction site. [NOTE: Several dozen clay roof tiles are very heavy].

In this case then, using clay tiles is not exactly the best material to use for roofing. The excessive weight gives too much pressure to the foundation of the house, which can affect the lifespan of the building. This means, frequent maintenance is needed. Nowadays, lightweight materials such as metal, vinyl, and other synthetic materials are used as alternatives.
