Roofs are made from different materials ranging from wood, concrete, shingles, metal to slate. Also varied construction styles highlight the beauty and significance of roofs alike.
Clay tiles for roofs have stood the test of time. Our own Mangalore tiles as the name suggests is from Mangalore. Mangalore tiles for the roof are etched in our memories and are closely connected with our childhood village homes.
