We explore the history of tile and the benefits of using terra cotta roof tiles on commercial and residential projects by using real-world, current, and historic application examples. We'll walk through the manufacturing process and speak to clay's green and differentiating qualities in comparison to other roofing materials. We also preview various tile profiles, accessories, colors and textures that can be used to design a uniquely beautiful building or home.
