Daltile launches its Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tile, which is designed to provide the ultimate roofing solution for contractors, builders, interior designers, architects, and homeowners who are seeking beauty, durability, and ease of installation in their roofing tiles, at a very competitive price. Available in six colors and designs, the new line realistically replicates the look of slate, timber, and clay, but provides the strength of porcelain tile, according to the manufacturer.
Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tiles are easy to install. According to the company, installation of Perennial takes about the same time and effort as concrete tiles do. Perennial is simply nailed to the deck using traditional roofing installation methods. The low overall weight of Daltile’s Perennial Porcelain Roof System also adds to the speed of installation.
“At Daltile, we are bringing the innovation of porcelain roofing tile to market,” said Doug Pedersen, national director of roofing sales for Daltile. “Porcelain roofing tile will be a game-changer for the specialty roofing products segment — destined to soon outsell the current slate, clay, concrete, and metal roofing options.”
Daltile utilizes its patented, cutting-edge digital printing process, Reveal Imaging, to produce Perennial’s tile designs. “Our revolutionary digital printing technology creates colors, designs, and nuance details that are so realistic, it is difficult to tell the difference between the natural materials we are trying to emulate and the porcelain roofing tiles that we have produced,” said Pedersen.
“A roof should be more than just a protector of the home,” said Paij Thorn-Brooks, vice president of marketing for Daltile. “The right roof enhances the beauty and luxury of the home’s curb appeal as well as the home’s market value. As the expert in tile, the Daltile brand has the design expertise and technical ability to give homeowners, designers, architects, builders, and contractors the hottest, most popular colors and designs in roofing tiles.”
“The exceptional durability of porcelain tile is another important advantage of our new product,” said Pedersen. “Porcelain tile is tough. Its innate durability will resist decades of weather and outdoor elements. Porcelain tile is also fade proof, stainproof, scratchproof, waterproof, and fire resistant. Once installed, a porcelain tile roof can last two or three times as long as one covered with asphalt roofing shingles. Our new Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tiles come with a lifetime warranty.”
Made in the USA, Daltile’s Perennial tiles offer all of the inherent advantages of porcelain tile: resiliency, longevity, resistance to frost, high breaking strength, imperviousness to water, 110 mph wind rating, Class A fire rating (fire resistant), Class IV hail impact rating, and walkability.
“Daltile’s new Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tiles are significantly less expensive than most slate, clay, synthetic/polymer shingles, and metal tiles,” concluded Pedersen. “Perennial prices are in line with concrete roof tiles and Class IV asphalt shingles.”
Perennial’s product lines include the Opulent Slate Collection, the Lavish Clay Collection and the Classic Timber Collection provides the aesthetic of wood’s rich colors and natural graining without sacrificing performance.
