Higher weight and strength allows tile to meet the anticipated loads of today’s design requirements for all of the climatic regions.
Available in a variety of colors and styles.
Roof tiles come in many colors, shapes, and sizes. In fact, with modern innovations, concrete and clay roof tile manufacturers can produce tiles to suit any architectural style. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
Long Lasting Protection
Some clay roof tile manufacturers guarantee their tiles against fading for 50 years.
To maintain their long-lasting beauty, the weight of tile is important because it provides
enduring protection without developing problems like other roofing materials. There are also varieties of lightweight tile offered in certain regions of the country that are ideal for new and re-roofing projects.

With proper installation, tile roofing is one of a few select roofing systems
that is proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles per hour found in Florida.
Clay and concrete tile roofs are one of the most cost-effective choices due to their long
Lifespan—50 to 100 years or more. Both concrete and clay tile outlast other roofing
materials, with manufacturers offering warranties from 50 years to the life of the
structure. In fact, in Asia and Europe, many structures with clay roof tiles have remained
intact, functional and beautiful for centuries.
Require limited maintenance
All roofing systems require some maintenance, and certain climates and regions have special issues to address regardless of the type of roofing system. Under normal conditions, tile roofs require minimal maintenance.
