HomeWhat features heritage roofing tiles (Standing Seam, Canadian style, Wood casing tile) ?

Tuiles 3R’s expertise is also in the manufacture of traditional metal roofing tiles according to the original techniques which are often required by urban planning and heritage preservation committees in some municipalities.

Not to be confused with some profiles sold in store, the Standing Seam tile is not a profile but indeed a tile. The superposition of the tiles along the slope, combined with pinching of the joint system provides a solidity and greater expansion flexibility during changes of temperature (see Metal roofing tiles section)

Canadian style tile

The installation of the Canadian style tiles to the roof dates from the late 16th century. This type of roof then known great popularity between the years 1750 to 1850. This technique was developed to solve the problems of resistance of the welded plates from older designs.

The installation of a Canadian style roof requires a slope of at least 15 degrees. Today, the use of waterproof membranes and sealants improve the quality of these roofs. Otherwise, it can be installed on the attic (Gables) and vertical walls. Over time, the installation process is also improved. Contemporary pattern of poses, the installation of the tiles on the roof angle prevents ingress of water at the level of the seals. Furthermore, the addition of a deck’s departure provides a better seal at the base of the slope (see Metal roofing tiles section).

Casing style tile

This very old roofing technique would have been imported from Europe around 1800. Several of these roofs are still existing today, due to the high efficiency of the installation process. We find today different industrial products that mimic the pattern of the tile to stick, but their assembly does not reach the aesthetic quality and the degree of effectiveness of the original technique.

The installation of a Casing tile roof requires a slope of at least 15 degrees. Today, the use of waterproof membranes and sealants improve the quality of these roofs. At Tuiles 3R, we recommend the use of the baton trapezoid-shaped wood, because its closer base provides a space to absorb the expansion of the metal, thereby preventing its deformation (see Metal roofing tiles section).
