Eagle Being Green: Doing Our Part to Help the Environment

It’s important to you and your family, and ours as well. We love our planet and want to do our part to help the environment in we do.
We take our commitment to being environmentally friendly seriously, which is evident in our Eagle Green initiative. We’d like to share with you some of the steps we take to produce a product and business that keeps our planet safe and clean. 

We lead all other concrete tile manufacturers with our recycling and re-use activities:

• We make a concerted effort to reduce haul-off from all of our plants when purchasing the most energy-efficient 
and environmentally safe equipment we can find.

• Rejected tile is crushed and re-introduced into the manufacturing process.

• Trash that cannot be recycled is compacted to reduce landfill deposits.

• Wood tile pallets are repaired and re-used whenever possible.

• Synthetic oils are used on machinery when possible due to their long life-span.

• Engine oil and filters from plant equipment are recycled.

• All Eagle tile sealers are water-based.

Built to Last: Tile Roofs Can Take Extreme Conditions Well

It’s true. Buildings with tile roofs provide the greatest protection and best value of any roofing material.Different parts of our country are susceptible to devastation and damage from extreme weather. Clay and concrete roof tiles can resist damage from extreme weather and circumstances like hailstones, storms, and hurricane-force winds.

One of the reasons for this is because a tile roof system provides two layers of protection from the elements. The tile itself provides a tough water-shedding outer shell. And an underlayment of asphalt roofing paper is placed over the roof decking providing the inner shell.
This is real protection that few other roofing systems can provide.
One of the best attributes of concrete and clay tile roofing is its resistance to extreme weather conditions.  Its design and construction provide high air permeability, which helps relieve wind stress. Most other types of roofing materials would be damaged greatly under hurricane winds of 125 mph, but independent studies have shown that tile roofs have fared well in these cases.
