Roofing Tiles

Roofing tiles are either made from clay, slate, concrete or plastic. Installing tile roofing commonly requires parallel wood battens to run under the tiles to help prevent them from being crushed when walked on.

Clay Roof Tiles

Clay roof tiles are known for their rich red or terracotta coloring. They are manufactured in glazed or unglazed finish with colors which are always in some shade of red, orange or earth tones.

Concrete Roof Tiles

Concrete roof tiles are made of sand and cement but resemble the look of clay roof tiles.

Plastic Roof Tiles

Plastic roof tiles are made from plastics such as PVC(polyvinyl chloride) or TPO(thermoplastic polyolefin).
