The highest quality tile roofs are fired from clay offering a hard baked non-porous surface that will hold up to the freeze/thaw winter conditions found in Wisconsin. These tiles are virtually non-weathering and look like new after 100+ years of exposure to weather. Clay fires naturally to an orange terra cotta color but colors can be added to create a full range of earth tones. Tiles can also be fired with a glazed color that offers a glossy surface which often comes in shades of green.
There are many shapes and sizes from barrel tiles to flat tiles. There is a look that fits any style of architecture. Clay tile is the finest, longest lasting roofing product available, but it is only as good as the installation and the support materials. It takes an understanding of the different components of the tile roofing product selected and a knowledge of how to adapt it to the building to make the investment in a tile roof worthwhile.
