On the Roof with TRI Training

At Eagle Roofing Products, we want to provide our partners and customers with as much valuable industry information and training opportunities as possible, which is why we routinely collaborate with the Tile Roofing Institute (TRI).

Founded in 1971, TRI has produced technical manuals on code language and preferred installation practices within all the major code bodies nationwide. TRI has played a major role in testing tile under severe weather and seismic conditions, as well as developing legislation of building codes. Here you will find their monthly newsletter, which is full of updates on training activities, technical tips and other news from the tile roofing industry.
