Concrete Tile Roofing: The World's Most Sustainable and Energy Efficient Roof System
Founded over 25 years ago, Eagle began operations in the fall of 1989 with one high-pressure concrete tile extrusion machine. Today, Eagle's Rialto, California facility is the largest in North America. Eagle has grown to eight design centers and a workforce of over 500 employees that are knowledgable on not only concrete roof tile but regional trends and needs. Our expertise, coupled by our extensive array of profiles and colors, enables us to provide our customers with high quality concrete roofing products that are aesthetically beautiful, durable and environmentally friendly.
In this one hour course, we will take an in-depth look at the sustainability and energy efficient attributes of concrete tile roofing, including the near zero-waste manufacturing process, life cycle cost and performance versus temporary asphalt shingle roofing as well as the installation processes which enhances the inherent thermal mass attributes of concrete tile roofing.
- Discuss how the versatility of concrete tile roofing combined with its durability makes it one of the most sustainable roofing products available
- Consider the value of products composed of a small number of raw materials that are sustainable, including some recycled materials
- Review the near zero waste manufacturing process of concrete roof tiles from the introduction of raw materials to the finished product
- Compare and contrast an installation method that exploits the air permeable characteristics of concrete tile roofs versus other temporary roofing materials
- Identify key performance characteristics of concrete tile roofing including wind and hail resistance
- Analyze the longevity, durability, and overall life cycle cost analysis of concrete roof tile compared to asphalt shingles, wood shakes, slate and metal
- Confidently specify concrete tile roofing as an alternative to slate, metal , wood shakes and temporary asphalt shingles
