ABOUT ROOFING TILES
Traditional roofing tiles are made from fire clay. A wide variety of shapes is available, including interlocking flat tiles and curved tiles giving a more Southern or Mediterranean appearance. Clay tiles are extremely durable, with warranties available of up to 75 years. They are available in a wide range of red, brown, and grey colors. Concrete roofing tiles are an alternative to traditional clay roofing tiles. They are less expensive, and are equally durable. However they do not have the same authentic texture as traditional clay tiles, and do not weather as gracefully.
Both clay and concrete tiles are available in lightweight versions for use in re-roofing projects where the strength of the structure or local code requires lightweight roofing.
