Clay Tile Roofing


Installing, Repairing, & Restoring your Clay Roof

A Time-Tested Roofing Method

Clay tile roofing has been in existence for more than 10,000 years. Many buildings in ancient China, Egypt, Babylonia, Rome, and Greece were roofed with clay tiles. Production and installation methods which were used thousands of years ago have evolved little over time and many similar techniques are still used today.

In America, European settlers brought this ancient craft with them and evidence of clay tile roofs have been found in early settlements at Roanoke, Jamestown, St. Augustine, and New Orleans. By the mid-seventeenth century, clay tile manufacturing had migrated to America and its use was encouraged by building and fire codes in urban areas due to their fireproof qualities.

Expert Repair & Restoration

Today, The Durable Slate Company installs, repairs and restores all types of clay tile roofs. Our specialty is restoration which requires tiles to be re-laid with new underlayments and flashings.

The repair and restoration of old clay tile roofs should only be done by a roofing contractor with such expertise. Much of this type of clay tile restoration today is being carried out by contractors who lack the in-depth knowledge and skill required, resulting in many ruined clay tile roofs.

From Our Clients

I wanted to take a minute to thank Durable Slate and John, the foreman on our recent roofing job, for the work just completed. John was very helpful in explaining and updating me on the work. Despite on-and-off rain, John completed the job without delay which is very much appreciated. The roof not only looks great but it has improved the appearance as the tiles needed to appropriately cover the area were located by your company and installed by John and his crew. A nice upgrade!
