Why choose our authentic clay tile versus non-clay alternatives?
No Efflorescence: Efflorescence is typically caused by minerals in cement based products leaching to the surface over time and depositing a white chalky substance on the surface of the product. US Tile products are all made of 100% natural clay and are not subject to efflorescence. That ensures that your US Tile products will remain beautiful and vibrant for the life of the structure.
High Thermal Emittance: Clay simply absorbs less heat and releases heat more quickly than most roofing materials, reducing the temperature fluctuation in buildings and homes. This reduction in heat fluctuation means temperature control units for heating and cooling turn on less often, saving energy and valuable resources while making the interior of the structure's environment more consistent.
Authenticity: US Tile clay roofing products are based on techniques handed down through the ages. We only make authentic clay tile. Our colors are kiln-fired expressions of the organic qualities inherent in the superior clays we use. The beauty of our product is as timeless as the traditions they are based on.
