In the earliest civilizations, roofing tiles were used to protect their most precious structures. Today, concrete roof tiles are used all around the world and known in the industry as one of the most durable products, when compared to other roofing materials. Durability isn’t the only advantage that concrete roof tiles have! They can also raise a homeowner’s curb appeal, complement any architectural structure, converse energy in hot and cold weather, and to top it all off it’s also environmentally friendly.
Reassurance for a lifetime

Concrete roof tile is composed of 3 natural products – Sand, Water, and Cement. The raw materials used are preservative free and the waste from the concrete can be immediately recycled back into the manufacturing process, eliminating unnecessary landfill clutter.*
Asphalt shingles, on the other hand, have been known to produce extra waste and have been filling our landfills for decades. Once their short life span is over, they are immediately processed out and into landfills all around the country.
Largely because of re-roofing, asphalt shingles are producing…
11 MILLION tons of waste annually**
Pollution in the environment**
Releasing carcinogenic hydrocarbons into the ground**
Did you know? Concrete roof tiles reabsorb up to 20 percent of carbon dioxide emissions and energy efficient installation techniques can minimize heating and cooling costs.*
Be Energy Efficient
Concrete Roofing tiles are the only materials, currently in use, that possess two inherent qualities necessary for energy reduction: first, the natural thermal resistance in the raw materials themselves that are created by the larger cross-sectional areas of the tiles while installed. Secondly, since they are installed individually, rather than in sheets or in overlapping style, the natural airspace around the tiles creates a natural ventilation that provides a thermal barrier for heat transfer to the roof deck. This “Above Sheathing Ventilation” (ASV) can result in greatly reduced heat flux transfer when compared to a baseline asphalt shingle. This can assist in the movement of the peak load demands by several hours, which directly benefits those living in warm climates as well as those in cold conditions.*
Did you know? Eagle’s Cool Roof Tiles reflect sunlight and heat away from the home resulting in a 10% to 30% energy savings on air conditioning.
