Tile: Tile roofs have been around for centuries. Like any roofing product, they were created to provide a barrier between the inside of a structure and the harsh outside elements. Roof tiles are made of local, natural and recyclable materials such as terracotta (also known as clay), slate and concrete. All three of these roofing materials offer lifelong durability and fireproofing; two superior qualities that continues to set them apart from the competition. Concrete roof tiles, like those manufactured by Eagle Roofing Products, offer additional benefits including: versatility in design and color, energy efficiency, greater protection against high winds, hail and freeze/thaw climates, and they are less expensive than genuine clay or slate.
