What is the maximum roof pitch for a roof tile?

Roof tiles and slates are very versatile products and can be used on a variety of roof pitches. Tiles or slates can be used at pitches up to 90 degrees (vertical) provided a clip is available to securely clip the tail of the tile (available for most tiles). This is common practice in the south east for instance, where plain tiles are used as a cladding material on the first floor.  In slate areas, such as the south west, natural slates provide an attractive cladding material that was sometimes used to clad entire buildings.  For steeper pitches please note it is a requirement to nail and clip all tiles above 55 degrees.
