Do you have a lower-profile roof installed in the 70s or 80s? It could be a concrete tile from Marley, Unicrete, Columbia or BC Tile.  Concrete tiles have been manufactured in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, and Quebec since the 1970s, with the last plant closing in the early 2000s.  While some are hard to find, there is still a good supply of replacement tiles for repair.  For new construction projects, we have a great alternative from Eagle, which works in almost every situation.

Since the 1800s, slate has been quarried and used on the finest homes and buildings around North America. Slate is still revered for its hardness, variety of colors, and weather resistance. Our partner, Tile Roof Canada, has been working with North American and European quarries for over a decade.
