There are a number of advantages to going with this type of material over other types, and the aesthetics of clay is just one of those reasons.


What Are Clay Tiles?

  • Clay roof tiles are clay that has been shaped into tiles, fired, and then stacked in an interlocking or overlapping fashion. They are sometimes painted or dyed, but are also often left in their natural color.


Beautiful Tile Colors

  • Clay tiles come in so many different colors that it can be a quite a task to pick the perfect one for your home. You can choose the natural colors of the clay, in either glazed or matte finishes; but, even with natural colors, there are quite a few to choose from.
  • If you are looking to match a specific decor, then you might be interested in many of the artificial colors that are offered instead. There are quite a few available to choose from. For example, not counting the blends, manufacturer Santa Fe Tile has over 50 different colors available including styles like Rustica, Fusion and Verde.


Clay Tile Shapes

  • Clay tiles also come in a variety of shapes that you can choose from. Depending upon the manufacturer, you can choose standards like Spanish, Royal and Flat designs, or you can get a custom shape that will fit your home perfectly. A-1 Property Services works with a number of manufacturers which is the best way to have great choices available to our Miami customers.
