DECRA Tile provides the scalloped look of Mediterranean tile without the vulnerability of clay or concrete tiles.
While conventional tiles provide the aesthetic elements, they crack easily and are prone to hail and storm debris impact. They also absorb up to 15% of their weight in water and have barely any wind uplift characteristics that they aren't warrantied against wind damage at all. These deficiencies rule them out as a viable option for roofs in challenging climates.
DECRA Tile is durable and lightweight, outlasting conventional tiles with the back up of stone-coated steel to withstand the elements.
