Antique Reclaimed Roof Tiles
Clay roofing tile is an Art as ancient as the Mediterranean itself, the ancient Roman construction patterns produced colorful terracotta barrel tiles that are strong and durable. Many of the reclaimed are more than 100 years old and pass through thorough inspections before becoming the clay roofing of your home. Although antiques they are still strong to walk on!
CoorItalia specializes in the recovery of antique Spanish, Italian, and French roof tiles. Each village throughout the Mediterranean relied on local specialists to create clay roofing by hand for their homes. Because of differences in clay color, each region produced slightly different colors, and styles – most use barrel shaped pieces for both Cap and Pan but others chose flat in alternative.
CoorItalia works with deconstruction companies to save these tiles and reclaim them for projects that want an authentic Mediterranean look and feel in the US.
New Roof Tiles
While we are proud of our antique barrel resources, we know this might not be the best option for everyone. If antique terracotta is not for you and you want a more uniform look, or are pressed with a design budget, consider our manufactured barrel roof tiles. We have a variety of solutions that cover a wide variety of aesthetic requirements and costs. These can be solid colored tiles as well as the “antiqued” finish, using a variety of different processes. The advantage is that you can control the color palette to a greater degree than reclaimed tiles.
