Eagle Design Corner: Repurposing Your Roof Tiles

If you recently had a new tile roof installed or removed, you may have some extra pieces of tile lying around. Instead of trashing them, give your roof tiles a new purpose! There are dozens of ways to repurpose your tile, no matter the material or profile. Let’s take a look at a few easy ways you can upcycle your roof tiles and get into the DIY spirit for the upcoming summer season.

Landscape Edging

In need some of some edging around your garden or landscaping areas? Try using a medium-barrel concrete roof tile, such as Eagle Roofing Products’ Malibu profile. You can create either an elevated planter, or bury the tiles further into the soil for ground level edging. Now you’ll have less chance of grass spreading into your landscape area, and you won’t have to worry about mulch or rock spilling into the lawn.

Planter

With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to begin brightening up your front porch or patio area with a few planters! Create your planter using either slate tiles or flat concrete tiles, like Eagle Roofing Products’ Bel Air Profile. Once you’ve created your planter, drop in your soil and seasonal flowers and Voila!

Sconce

Add beautiful, soft lighting to any outdoor or indoor space with a roof tile sconce! Use leftover clay tiles or any type of high-barrel concrete tile, such as Eagle Roofing Product’s Capistrano profile. Simply screw your desired candle holder to the barrel portion of the tile, add your candle, and hang your new décor piece.
