About the use old recovery roof tiles

  • 9th August, 2017
Are the old roof tiles reusable? Do they have any warranty??

Usually in old building we can find old roof tiles, basically Arab-style roofing tiles or Marseille roof tiles, that were originally handmade produced by smallold local “potters” so there is no guarantee to be used in a new deck or for a roof rehabilitation. According with the new mandatory CTE (Código Técnico de la Edificación / Technical Building Code) is mentioned for the supply of any construction material on site, the following:

“7.2.1. Control of documentation of supplies

1. The product suppliers must provide documentation and quality guarantees required for the products supplied. The suppliers will deliver to the builder, who will provide to the manager on site, all product identification documents required by the mandatory regulations. This documentation shall include, at least, the following documents:
a) Documents of origin, supply sheet and labeling;
b) The manufacturer’s guarantee certificate, signed by a natural person;
c) The documents of conformity or administrative authorizations required by regulation, including documentation corresponding to the CE marking of construction products…”.

If we cannot find the manufacturer of the old mentioned roof tiles and there is no documentation for them, there will be no warranty and can be used only for decorative purposes and not to fulfill the functions for which the roof tiles are inicially made (covering and protection against rainwater and winds.)
