Some common styles available for clay and concrete tiles are imbrex (Roman patterns), tegula (Roman pattern), pantiles (S-shaped), antefixes (vertical blocks), and mission/barrel tiles (semi-circular).

We understand the importance of matching the tile precisely to prevent future issues. This is a more difficult task than most homeowners, or even roofing contractors understand.  As many tile manufacturers have either closed or merged, the old tile molds are no longer available. The most common error in tile repair is trimming a tile with larger dimensions to fit your roof. These tile are designed to interlock in a manner than resists water intrusion.
