The smaller rod is used to fix batons around hips and valleys and saves a lot of time messing around with a tape. Cutting and bending At roof terminations and intersections tiles are cut to fit allowing for a 50mm bend in the tile. It is this turn up/down that provides the waterproofing of the roof. It is important to bend a sufficient upturn or water may be blown under the ridge or hip. I have found by taping the jaws of the bender with several layers of duct tape it allows the tiles to be gripped firmer without damaging the paint of the tile. Aim to use half the tile per cut. This will leave you enough metal to get another cut for the opposing side. Valley cutting Marking and cutting the valley at ground level gives a much neater appearance. Instead of measuring each tile cut individually the tiles are laid along the ground as if they were on the roof.
Choosing the color and design of a metal tile requires an aesthetic taste and you need to consider several other aspects of your home décor like the color of the flooring and walls. Many people are also opting for metal tiles for their roofing. If you cannot afford slate clay tiles or expensive wood; metal tiles provide a reasonably priced option. Although it works out costlier than asphalt a metal tiled roof is more economical in the long run. An asphalt roof is expected to last a maximum of thirty years without any problems whereas metal roofing usually carries a warranty for at least fifty years. The metal roof is very durable and has a high resistance to extreme weather conditions.
Removing Stains Stainless steel tiles may still end up having blemishes caused by hard water deposits. In these instances the tiles tend to look unpleasant but these blemishes are quite easy to remove. Create a paste using either water and baking soda or water and borax. Apply it to the whole surface using a cloth rinse it using warm water and then wipe it with a dry cloth. Do not rub too hard so you will not scratch your metal accent tiles for backsplash.

The metal tile is a recent addition to the various types of tiles used in decorating the house and commercial establishments.
