Tile Roofs and Fire

Tile Roofs and FireEvery year, regardless of the part of the country, wild fires devastate hundreds of homes. In independent testing, concrete and clay tile roofing has proven to be safer than traditional roofing materials such as shingles, wood shake or metal. By design, a tile roof is allowing air circulation under the tile, which reduces heat transfer to the attic during a fire.

Tile roofs achieve the highest attainable fire rating for both the product & installed system. The Class A fire rating includes tests for spread of flame, intermittent flame, and the burning brand.
