Boral Roofing’s one-piece clay S tile looks like a traditional cap-and-pan style tile, but in a single piece, providing roofers with a cost-effective option that can be installed more quickly.

The tile is rated Class 3 for hail and Class A for fire. Additionally, some colors are rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council and the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star program.

DaVinci Roofscapes recently introduced three new colors to its line of composite shake shingles designed to mimic real shake shingles. The new colors, Aged Cedar, Mossy Cedar and Black Oak, match the colors found in real aged shake that unfortunately occur when the wood deteriorates.

The new colors are available on all DaVinci multiwidth and single-width shake composite roofing tiles, and feature wavy or straight grain. DaVinci’s shake tiles are certified to withstand wind speeds up to 110 miles per hour. They are rated Class 4 for hail, and have fire ratings of Class A or C, depending on the type of underlayment used.
