Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions
What are cool roof tiles?
As mentioned above, cool roof tiles are crafted from high-reflective material like zirconium oxide, alumina silicate, or zirconium silicate. It is coated with special glaze that allows tiles to reflect most of the solar heat absorbed during the day. With this technology, the temperatures inside buildings come down drastically, adding to the comfort in your home. At Orientbell, you can find cool tiles with a solar reflective index of 103, which is not available anywhere else.
How do you lay cool roof tiles?
Unlike general perception, laying down cool roof tiles is not a difficult process at all. It is similar to what happens when you go for ceramic or porcelain tiles. First of all, the base mortar is prepared with cement and sand in a 1:4 ratio. Next, waterproofing chemicals are mixed into the mortar, and the cement slurry is then prepared that is applied on the mortar. It is suggested that while laying the tiles, use a 6mm spacer for the perfect layout. The final step is to fill the grout liner or joints with the waterproof grouting materials. Let the tiled area stay as it is, without any disturbance for at least 48 hours.
What tiles are heat resistant?
Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are resistant to heat, but remember they are not heat-proof. What this means is that although they can handle high temperatures, they are not completely free from damage. In extreme cases, they could get faded or chipped.
