Tile roofs have been a choice for high-end projects for many decades. Tile roofs are used all over Europe and have been for centuries. We typically use concrete tile from Bartile which is a local manufacturer in Centerville, UT.
Ceramic tile are also available although the price is substantially higher than concrete tile. All of the Bartile systems have a 75 year material warranty. In addition, WeatherGuard Roofing, LLC offers a 10 year labor warranty on all of our tile projects.
Styles of Tile
Slate – This is a replica of a traditional slate roof. Slat roofs are some of the oldest roofs in the world and can be find on cathedrals, government buildings, castels, estates, etc. The tile is thicker than most authentic slate roofs but the size and shape of the tile is consistent as well as the smooth finish.
Shake – This is a replica of a traditional cedar shake roof. The tile has a natural wood grain look to it in addition to being extra thick providing extra depth to the roof.
Sierra Mission – This is the most traditional of all tile roofs and can be seen all over Mexico and Latin America as well as parts of Europe. The half round shape of the sierra mission tile is accented by traditional colors and custom colors are available as well.
