Varied Tile Styles
At Greenlee Construction, we offer a wide range of tile styles that can add immediate and lasting value to your home’s roof quickly and effectively. Five of our most popular tile styles include:
If you are looking for a durable yet elegant tile then our Spanish tile might be the perfect choice for you. Spanish tiles look like rows on waves with wide water courses between the tiles. In general, Spanish tiles are located in warmer locations, like Spain, where rain may be unusual but when it does arrive, it’s heavy. Heavy downpours can make light of lesser materials that can be saturated damaged. The best materials for Spanish tiles include clay, terracotta and concrete varieties.
In many ways Scandia tiles are Spanish tiles but simply turned upside down. However, unlike Spanish tiles, this type of tile has the visual effect of sharp ridges with wide, smooth water courses. On average, the cost of a Scandia tile will be approximately the same as our Spanish tiled option.
At first glance, a Double Roman tile may look like a Spanish tile but the reality of the situation is that, while looking similar to the waves on Spanish tiles, the Roman version has distinct ribs that are extremely pronounced. Double Roman tiles are extremely popular in the Mediterranean area as their unique shape and dimension fits narrow roofs perfectly. In general, these types of tiles are made from concrete but can also be made from clay and terracotta.
Usually found in concrete, flat shake tiles are usually designed and built to resemble a number of shingle styles including granulated asphalt and wood shake. These flat shake tiles contain flat surfaces which is smooth enough to ensure that any rain water isn’t trapped. The adaptability and flexibility of this type of tile makes it a great choice for locations with changeable weather conditions.
Referred by some to profile, the French tile is often a reversed version of the Roman Double with generous indents where the humps would be located. This means that the amount of water absorbed and shed is lowered considerably.
