Explanation:
I found both "lâmina" and "chapa", the second being more related to metals. A "layer" ("camada") could be an option too, but it bears the idea of a thicker structure.

Forro ou teto


Explanation:
In Brazil, houses are usually roofed with a clay type of curved plate.
They place them on top of houses in a manner that can be described as leaves (one overlapping the other) to prevent as much of the rain as possible from entering the house.
