Tile, Slate, & Composite Roofs
Composed of either clay or concrete are perhaps the longest lasting roofing material available, frequently lasting more than 50 years. They are extremely fire resistant, and normally require little or no maintenance. Tiles offer greater variety in color and texture than slate, which is typically found in black, gray or dark red. However, tile or slate roof installation is a more expensive project.
