Clay is a natural product, as a result possible colour, tonal and finish differences can be expected. We therefore, recommend mixing tiles from different boxes and/or pallets to promote the best colour mix and overall finish. The usage of Marley Advance Lusa ceramic and non ceramic accessories is essential to ensure ideal finishing results. Please note the minimum recommended pitch for the Marley Advanced Lusa clay tiles, is defined in accordance with local climatic zones and wind-exposed areas - non adherence to Marley Roofing's recommendations may result in compromised performance. Therefore, strictly follow Marley's installation guidelines as well as local safety and building regulations when assembling this product. Marley Undertile Membrane or Radiant Barrier is recommended at all pitches in exposed and coastal areas. For more information please contact Marley Technical Services.
