Clay has been used to produce and used effectively since Roman times. Clay tiles are made from naturally occurring clay deposits, which are then shaped an fired in kilns. The material is highly durable and weather resistant. Modern production methods create products with improved durability and an increasing variety of colours and textures. A prime feature of clay tiles is their colour-fastness. Their colours do not fade, but improve over the years.
