CORONA, Calif., (Dec. 12, 2005) - U.S. Tile Company, the nation's largest producer of authentic clay roofing tile, offers Montoro(TM) fine imported genuine clay roof tiles to the continental United States market. Manufactured in Australia by Boral Montoro, the Montoro(TM) tiles are produced from the finest clays and designed by the world's leading tile craftsmen.
The Montoro(TM) is a true Grade One roof tile, providing both strength and insulation against temperature and weather. With a water absorption rate of less than 6 percent, Montoro(TM) tiles are guaranteed safe for use in areas subject to repeated freeze-thaw cycling or where salt laden air is prevalent. Montoro(TM) tiles feature a unique interlock at the head and side lap for maximum weather protection and conform to the A.S.T.M. C1167 standard specification for Grade One roof tiles.
Montoro(TM) roof tiles are available in two profiles, the Tuscan and the French. Ideal for custom projects, each profile offers a classic, elegant appearance that sets new standards in performance.
Based on a bold European design, the flat pan with barrel design of the Tuscan creates clean lines that make it ideal for a variety of modern roof applications, from homes to commercial buildings. The unique two-valley shape of the French profile gives the roof line a look of texture and flow. Its classic style gives a home a look of refinement that is appropriate for both rural and city living.
To create the Montoro(TM) tiles, the highest quality clays are pressed into individual molds, producing truly superior tiles that are extremely concise in dimension. Both profiles are available in an extensive range of colors and finishes, from natural clay to mist, matt and full high-gloss ceramic glazes.
