Brava's roof tiles are the right choice for any climate. They can withstand freeze/thaw cycles, and the Spanish barrel tile allows for spacing to permit air flow which can add to the cooling effect for the building, thereby increasing energy efficiency. Tile roofs often have enhanced air circulation compared to other roofing types because ambient air can circulate below as well as above the tile, making it a great choice for warmer areas.
The term barrel tile is used to describe several forms of semi-cylindrical roof tile that are laid in an interlocking pattern. Most commonly referred to as Spanish Tile or Double Roman tile, the barrel tile design has been around for centuries. Brava Tile has developed two composite roof tile designs that evoke the grandeur of the old world, with the strength, practicality and environmental consciousness of today's world.
