Clay Roof Tile
Clay roof tile is a symbol of premium roofing, with the highest standard of sustainability and craftsmanship.
Clay tile roofs are common on southern and coastal homes, where intense heat and high winds are a concern. Since clay is a manufactured product, roofing tiles are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors. Clay tiles offer excellent durability and fire resistance.
The one drawback to tile has been its weight; they have typically been very heavy and require certain structural standards for the frame and decking of the roof. However, many manufacturers are offering an increasingly larger option of light-weight tile, reducing the need for additional structural work. Tile in general has a great life expectancy, with a duration of up to 40 or 50 years. Tile roofs offer one of the longest warranties in the roofing industry.
