Eagle Tile Roofs: What’s Old is New Again

eagle_cement_tile_roofAlthough asphalt shingle roofs are often found on homes and businesses throughout North America, in Europe, “old fashioned” tile roofs are still very common, and much appreciated. Of course, when one considers the beauty, durability and energy efficiency of a tile roof, it’s probably not surprising that tile roofs are still in use all over Europe. And while you can import tiles form Europe for your home, Eagle Roofing Products are made right here in the United States.

The concrete roof tiles from Eagle Tile are an excellent way for Miami area homeowners to get all the benefits of a tile roof, but without the higher costs associated with clay, copper or shaker shingles.

Colors/Styles

Whether you are building new, or re-roofing your current home in the Miami area, adding Eagle tile products to your home is not a one-size fits all process. There are 5 main styles of tile to choose from to compliment your home. And of course there are dozens of color choices. Among the Eagle Tile styles are:

  • Malibu – An inverted U-shape tile that fits well with Mediterranean-type architecture
  • Capistrano – S-shaped tiles that provide the look of a beautiful old world Spanish roof
  • Bel Air, Golden Eagle and Ponderosa – square roof tiles that give the impression of slate or shaker shingles.

Because they are a concrete product, Eagle’s roofing tiles are naturally energy efficient. To make your new roof even more efficient, you can choose roof tile colors that are highly reflective of sunlight (Energy Star rated), or even choose to have Eagle’s Solar Tiles installed to create electricity while looking great.
