Not all tile are Created Equal

We only use materials that are ASTM Certified Grade 1 (c1167-11). This is essential to combat the harsh Northeast climate where the temperature variations within a 24 hour period are greater than 30 degrees. Non Grade 1 roof tiles with high absorption rates cannot withstand the severe frost and thaw conditions of the Northeast. resulting in cracking spalling and fading which causes the tile to inevitably fail. Local building codes require by law that clay tiles must comply with the ASTM standard to provide the highest degree of resistance to severe weather, rain and frost.
