Mangalore tiles are made from the laterite stone available in the area of the same name, in Karnataka. Mangalore tiles are usually red in colour and have a characteristic S-shaped curved design.
Mangalore tiles are naturally fire resistant, water resistant, and can withstand extreme weather conditions. They are also highly durable and do not require much maintenance. They can last for up to 50 years or more, depending on the quality of the tile. They are also relatively inexpensive, making them a popular choice for many homeowners.
