Last week, Daltile’s announcement regarding a new line of roofing tile drew the most reader interest (Daltile Expands into Roofing Industry with Porcelain Roofing Tile): “Daltile recently announced that it is extending its product offerings into the roofing industry with the launch of the new Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tile collection. According to Daltile, Perennial provides a roofing solution for contractors, builders, interior designers, architects, and homeowners who are seeking beauty, durability, and ease of installation in their roofing tile, at a competitive price.
“‘At Daltile, we are bringing the innovation of porcelain roofing tile to market,’ said Doug Pedersen, national director of roofing sales. ‘Porcelain roofing tile will be a game-changer for the specialty roofing products segment.’
“Made in the U.S., Daltile’s Perennial tile line reportedly offers 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.”
