Pardon me for this silly question. I love the look of a concrete tile roof and had a look at Monier atura profile which looks really nice.
Is there a chance that a part of roof tile will fall inside the house? I know that they are sitting on a timber but since they are not attached securely as colourbond, I wonder how safe they are? Not sure if it's just my weird imagination where someone is sleeping then a piece of roof tile will fall over to that person (knock on wood this won't happen), but inside the ceiling there is an insulation like foam to catch the roof tile anyway if this happens?
Advice from the experts? Thanks

Are we talking "normal" roof tiles here ? They are "locked" into each other and have no fear of falling.
BUT - can be easily moved if need be. I much prefer tiles to colour bond.
I guess I'm referring to a normal concrete roof tile - which is commonly installed on roof. Sorry not sure if there is any other type. That's great to know that they are locked into each other so no chance of falling. I thought they are just sitting on top of the timber 😁.
Thanks for the information. I don't need to worry then.
We initially thought of having colour bond but tile looks nicer and colour bond is $7k more expensive. We chose monier atura roof tile.
