From high heat to high winds, clay and concrete tiles have the best resistance. We help you decide which option is best for you and your roof. The more expensive option is clay as concrete is 40% heavier than clay which makes it the most wind resistant.

Clay is baked at high temperatures making it last longer than concrete. Clay and concrete, both have been tested against 150 mph winds and large hail rate of 2 inches. Florida Power & Light had a study that showed energy reduced by 40% in use by kilowatts. The study also shows that this type of material can reduce the transfer of heat by 70%. Not only is there a cost savings and a longer lifespan, the cooling factor provided by clay and concrete make them the cheaper options over time. Obviously these savings don’t happen overnight, these are savings that accumulate over time.
