Boral was the first in the world to obtain Cradle-to-Cradle Gold certification for a clay tile roof, upholding the highest standards of sustainability. Clay tile is made from up to 59% recycled material and the raw materials are sourced locally reducing transportation and minimizing the environment footprint.
Boral’s premium manufacturing process exposes the unique, exquisite colors of clay in a pallet of rich and vibrant hues. Clay tile tends to be naturally reflective and many of the colors meet the highest cool roofing standards such as ENERGY STAR and LEED, which can help improve comfort and energy efficiency.
Romano Pans trace their roots to the ancient Greeks. The flat-bottomed pan is designed for use with wither Mission or Monarch barrel-shaped tops and creates a look reminiscent of classical European aesthetics and style. Setting off the barrel tile, Romano Pans allow design flexibility and create a stunning appearance that signifies individuality of style in the best of taste.
The beauty of kiln-fired clay and the efficiency-advantage of one-piece “S” tile are elegantly engineered into ClayLite, a genuine clay tile that reduces weight by as much as 40%. Made from the same natural materials as a standard-weight tile, ClayLite is designed especially for re-roofing. With tile that weighs less that 600 pounds per square, a home can be enhanced with the traditional rich color palette and comfort performance of clay, often without the need for added structural reinforcement.
ClayMax lightweight tile offers a modern variant on the classic theme, a low-profile double-barrel tile that brings together the beauty and benefits of clay tile in a design that pairs resilience with sensibility.

The “Faux Mission” installation technique gives architects, builders and homeowners the superior aesthetics of a traditional two-piece clay tile roof at an affordable price. The “S” tile, ClayLite, and the traditional 2-piece Mission tile are carefully designed to fit together, allowing a custom installation that provides the aesthetics of a traditional two-piece tile while capturing the cost saving benefits of an “S” tile or ClayLite . The 2-piece Mission tile is installed at the eave where the details of the roof are most visible. The “S” tile or ClayLite tiles are then installed on the rest of the roof for a much quicker and easier installation than a traditional two-piece tile roof.
