In Westchester, we have installed a number of handsome flat tiles, fashioned to resemble roof slates, shakes and shingles more popular here in the North East. We have even worked on repairs of clay tile homes in Pelham with elaborate curves and flutes, to emphasize the special appearance of the home they adorn.
“Tile roofs, in either clay or concrete, surpass other roofing materials in appearance, fire safety and durability…The chief characteristic of clay tile is its elegant appearance, which over the years takes on a character and patina unequaled by other roofing.
Even from hour to hour the appearance of a clay roof varies with the changing pitch of the sun. In addition, clay tile is non-combustible; it doesn’t decay or corrode, no need much maintenance. And in its better grades – which are proof against moisture and damage from freezing – it often outlasts the nails that secure it.” What John Warde wrote in the New York Times back in 1988 is as true today as it was then.
Nothing makes a home pop-like a tile roof. Talk about curb appeal. Tile roofing is a show stopper – when paired with a home of a mid-western or Mediertian style.
