One of the main benefits of reclaimed roof tiles is their aged weathered beauty. This cannot be reproduced even using modern techniques. It is especially difficult to match new tiles to the original roof tiles for a repair job.
Roof tiles have been a popular choice in building design throughout history partly due to the fact they have an extremely long life span. In fact they can still be found on Ancient Greek, Egyptian and Roman buildings. Reclaimed roof tiles can be salvaged from demolished buildings or recovered during re-roofing projects. So it makes perfect sense to reclaim and reuse them.
