Alhough they have been around for centuries, clay tiles are regaining popularity as a finished roofing material throughout the country - and for good reason. 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. They can be used in any climate or region and can withstand the severest weather conditions, including fire, wind, and snow. They bring a rich, elegant and beautiful aesthetic quality to any property and definitely increase the value of any home.

Clay and concrete roof tiles are environmentally-friendly, too. They are both made from naturally occurring materials that do not deplete precious natural resources. They are manufactured without chemical preservatives, and old tiles can be recycled to make new tiles or other products. Moreover, roof tiles are energy efficient: because of the superior thermal capacity of roof tiles and the ventilated air space that their placement on the roof surface creates, a tile roof can lower air conditioning costs in hotter climates and produce more constant temperatures in colder regions, which reduce potential ice accumulation.

The flexibility and creativity in the manufacturing process has lead to a variety of tile shapes textures, and sizes. Some the more popular designs being, rounded, shingle, shake and slate. The manufacturing processes have been so well refined that in many cases tile roofing does not look like tile at all.
