Chipped Tiles Revisited

Recommended Posts

Sometime back there was a discussion on tile roofs. (at least I believe it was on this forum)

Someone (Kurt, Mark or Chris I think) mentioned about the corners being chipped off and they gave a reason why this happens.

Can someone refresh my memory as to why this occurs?

That allows the tile to lay flat on the underlying tile. If that corner was there, the edge of the adjacent tile would be sitting on top of the underlying tile.

This is what I was referring to (from the Monier Tile Website):

How do tiles get broken?

Sometimes in shipment and delivery, pallets of tile may be mishandled or bumped. Most often the damage is slight and the tiles are still usable. Tiles with chipped or broken edges can usually be installed at hips, valleys, rakes or other places requiring cut tiles. These tiles should be identified and sorted during the loading process.
