Tile Roofing Industry Alliance LogoAs the industry changes, so must we.

For more than 30 years, TRI Alliance has been the primary voice for concrete and clay tile roofing. We work to serve not only as a resource and advocate, but as a true partner, working closely with members, builders, contractors and legislators – allies – to create change.
