Tile provides many options in style, and color. Available in concrete or clay, tile roofing can enhance the architecture of most any home or building. Tile provides protection from fire, high winds and blistering heat while being environmentally friendly. Tile is available in standard and light weight with a 50-year transferable material warranty.

The tile itself does not keep the water out. Water will get under tile causing leaking through the underlayment system if it has not been installed by a qualified installer.

Tile roofs require proper flashing details and underlayment applications, to assure long-term performance. Although tile is one of the best long term products available, there is maintenance involved to keep the roof system water tight.

Single ply roof systems are made of many types. PVC, TPO, EPDM to name a few. All of which allow faster, cleaner, applications without the use of smelly tar equipment or open flame equipment.

We agree the PVC roof product is a more proven roof system as the formulas have not changed for decades. Correctly installed some PVC products will last 25-30 years.

TPO roof products seam to be getting better but have not proven their life cycles since the last formula improvements. TPO products expected life expectancy is 15 years.

Both products are Polyester reinforced membranes meeting or exceeding Title 24 compliant requirements. Both products are light weight with superior seam strength.

Known as "cool roof systems" single ply systems are becoming more known as they take a larger part in the roofing market.
