Beautiful & Enduring
Distinctive, beautiful, sustainable tile is the rooﬁng material of choice for quality and longevity. Its natural aesthetics have been highly valued for thousands of years, and are so today, with the addition of a multitude of shapes, proﬁles and colors for endless decorative possibilities. And unlike wood shakes or asphalt shingles, tile reliably holds its color and maintains its beauty over a very long lifespan.
Tile has much more to offer than good looks. Tile roofs are exceptionally resistant to water, frost, fire, wind and insect damage, lasting for centuries rather than decades. When a property owner invests in a properly installed tile roof, it’s the last roof they’ll ever need to buy – a huge plus when it comes to resale value.
There’s no roofing material more versatile than tile. Clay and concrete can be molded to resemble wood shakes, chipped stone and shingle-style slate, along with more traditional barrel and s-shaped profiles. There’s a perfect match for every architectural style.
In virtually every climate and geographic area, tile roofs provide exceptional thermal properties, reducing heat loss or gain. Natural air ventilation under the tiles creates a heat transfer barrier that can help cool a house in summer and warm it in winter, lowering energy costs by as much as 20%.
Tile is made from raw materials that don’t deplete limited natural resources, unlike petroleum-based roofing such as asphalt shingles. Tile roofing contains no preservatives, and waste from production can be immediately recycled back into the manufacturing process instead of landfilled.
Tile roofs offer unparalleled value when cost per year of use is factored in. While upfront costs are higher, customers who choose a clay or concrete tile roof will enjoy the aesthetics, quality, energy efficiency and sustainability for a lifetime.
