US Tile

The US Tile Co. was began in Corona, California in 1973 with a mission to build authentic roof tile from clay. To this day, they manufacture all of their roof tile at the same place in California.

US Tile has the most complete line of profiles and styles of any clay roofing tile company in the nation. Their portfolio includes traditional mission style barrel tiles in several profiles as well as flat tiles that deliver the aesthetics of natural slate and wood shake. Over 80% of US Tile’s standard portfolio of colors achieves a reflectivity rating of 25 or better, qualifying them as Energy Star compliant products.
