Clay and Concrete Tiles
In addition to their intrinsic beauty, tile roofs are extremely durable, lasting for centuries in some cases. Whether made of clay or concrete (the latter is more colorfast), individual tiles are often molded in barrel shapes for interlocking installation.

There is no material more capable of protecting a structure from wind, rain, hail, fire, or rot than a durable and energy-efficient metal roof. For decades, metal roofs meant corrugated panels, which looked like they belonged on sheds or barns. Today, metal roofing products are available in a variety of styles to suit a wide range of architectural styles.

A green roof requires several layers of support vegetation. You’ll need a waterproofing membrane to protect the roof—and depending on the slope—likely a root barrier and irrigation system.
