Estimating Clay and Concrete Tile

  • Field tile is usually sold in full pallets, and accessories in full boxes. Consult the manufacturer’s information for the number of field tiles per square, the number of squares per pallet, and the number of tile accessories packaged per box.
  • It takes about 90 concrete field tiles to cover a square of roof area when using a 3-in. top lap. 
  • Add 3% to field tile quantities for waste and breakage.
