TRI is now the Tile Roofing Industry Alliance
The Tile Roofing Institute is now the “Tile Roofing Industry Alliance.” We are changing the name to better represent who we are. TRI is not just training, or technical help. We’re not an “institute” with big heavy doors working on hypothetical ideas. We’re more than a manufacturer’s organization. Our strength comes from partnerships with suppliers, associate manufacturers, contractors, consultants and inspectors and their staff. We’re working on ways to improve and increase our value to each of you and your businesses. You are our industry. And we are the Tile Roofing Industry Alliance.
The Tile Roofing Industry Alliance is your resource for tile.
Learn why tile roofs are better for your home, better for the environment and better for your business. For homeowners, learn how to maintain your tile roof, find a trained contractor, and why to choose tile. For contractors and industry professionals, get technical updates, become manual certified or attend a TRI event to connect with leaders in the industry – all to grow tile’s market share and your business.
