A few weeks ago we shared a blog on our Facebook page that was written by Boral, one of our clay and concrete roofing tile manufactures. It sparked some discussion in our office so we thought we’d share a bit about our experiences with tile roofing and how it can add color and dimension to your home.
Often when we talk about roofing tiles with our Tampa area homeowners, they think about the traditional Spanish clay roofing tiles in an orange hue. Many people’s first thought or comment is that their home style wouldn’t be complemented by roofing tiles because they picture those orange/red tiles and often they are right.
The traditional clay Spanish style roofing tiles do come in many different hues and several different shapes, however, concrete or cement roofing tiles are available in virtually any color to compliment your home. Eagle Tile and Boral concrete roofing tile come in styles that mimic slate, wood shake, and the traditional Spanish style tile in many different colors.
If you are interested in a roofing material that stands up to wind, hail, and last for 50 years, you can’t go wrong with cement tile roofing. One of the styles we see many homeowners choosing is the Saxony 900 Slate form Boral. This style comes in colors ranging from white to various shades of brown, grays, green and the very popular Florida Blend
This beautiful blend of earth tones gives this white home color and dimension.
If you prefer Eagle Roofing Tiles, they offer a wide variety of colors and styles as well. Eagle Roofing classifies their tiles in to eight color groups; brown, gray, green, red, tan, terracotta, white, and purple. When looking at the color and style options from Eagle, one thing you will notice is that their products have several different design patters. Not only do they offer the traditional solid orange hued but they also have their flashed line which has a primary color blended with one or two other complementary colors. Another option from Eagle is their weathered finish. These tiles can give your home an old world look.
