Traditional roofing tiles were made from slate or fired clay product, but more modern types are made from concrete. Roofing tiles can come in many shapes: curved, flat, fluted, or interlocking. Clay and concrete tile roofs have been known to withstand hail, high winds, and even fire. Clay, concrete, and slate tiles come in a wide variety of colors and styles to match any home style, from Medieval to Contemporary European. Some styles even resemble traditional shingles or wood shakes. Unlike wood, tiles roofs will never decay. The heavy thermal mass of tiles will help regulate indoor temperatures. Once you install tile, you will never have to install another type of roofing again. Just in case, manufacturers will offer a 50-year warranty.
