Asphalt shingles are ok, but they cannot match the beauty of clay and concrete roof tiles. The numerous styles,
hundreds of colors, and variety of finishes available with roof tile allow you to create a roof to suit nearly any architectural style or one
that is entirely unique. The possibilities are endless.
Roof tile is tried and true. It has been used for centuries worldwide and for many
good reasons. Both clay roof tile and its modern partner, concrete, are not
only beautiful but also extremely durable. With proper building design and
installation, tile roofs can last 50 to 100 years or more. They do not rot in wet
climates and are not susceptible to destruction by pests. Tile roofs can be
used in any climate or region and can withstand fire, earthquakes, the severest weather conditions, including hail, wind and snow. For these reasons, most roof tile manufacturers offer product warranties of at least 50 years.
Clay and concrete tiles are environmentally friendly as well. Both clay and concrete roof tiles are made from natural materials that do not deplete precious resources. They are manufactured without chemical preservatives. Also, old
tiles can be recycled to make new tiles or other products. Finally, a simple comparison
of lifecycle costs makes it clear that a tile roof is one of the best available today.
