Features of our composite roofing: 


Composite Roofing Tile Components

At the heart of the Quarrix system, is our philosophy of innovating products that will protect your investment while enhancing the beauty of your tile roof. Since a roof is built from the bottom up, its foundation must be properly protected to guarantee the roof’s long-term success and lasting beauty.

Tile roofs stay beautiful longer when they are properly installed using our complete system of tile components. They provide the foundational support tile roofs need to protect against aging and fail points caused by water drainage, poor air-circulation, mortar joints and challenging roof angles. Quarrix tile components provide superior long-term
performance for your peace of mind.

DryRoof Roof Batten

DryRoof Battens are an industry staple and serve more than one purpose. They’re installed directly to the roof deck before any tile is laid on the roof. Elevating the tile off the roof deck not only creates proper drainage but also allows air to move freely, keeping the roof deck properly ventilated. A key component of the Quarrix DryRoof Batten is the UV-resistant, corrugated, HDPE plastic material that it's made from. The HDPE material is 100% resistant to moisture allowing it to withstand years of rain, snow and ice buildup. Wood battens are prone to rotting and cracking, which make plastic battens the superior alternative and a vital component to the Quarrix System Advantage. tile-fastener-screw.png

Lower Metal Eave Closures

Quarrix Lower Metal Eave Closures (or bird stop) are made of Kynar-coated, G90 galvanized steel and are pressure fitted pieces that snap into the ends of Quarrix field tiles located on any eave edge and fill what otherwise be a visible void along the lower roof edge. A weep hole provides any moisture under the tile to escape. 

Universal Tile Flashing

universal-flashing-sm.pngQuarrix Universal Tile Flashing is an all-in-one rollable tile flashing product that can be used as a primary flashing, a counter flashing, or in combination with bent metal flashings. A fully-adhered, expandable aluminum flashing designed with a unique butyl backing that provides a weather-tight seal on the following roof applications: headwall, chimney, hip, ridge, gable end, skylight or pipe stack. The expandable nature of the roll flashing allows it to contour to complex shapes with no specialty tools needed. The superior features of Quarrix Universal Tile Flashing prevent against water leakage and structural roof damage to most roofing materials including asphalt, clay, concrete, steel and synthetic roof tile.tile-ridge-vent-sm.png

Universal Tile Ridge Vent

Quarrix's Universal Tile Ridge Vent assists in creating attic ventilation and airflow under the tile to help achieve a cool roof system. This all-in-one, rollable tile roof ridge vent combines ridge ventilation and weather blocking into one. Made of durable, UV-resistant aluminum with a synthetic release liner designed to contour to complex shapes with its peel-off butyl adhesive.

Hip/Ridge/Rake Tile

tile-fastener-screw.pngUse Hip/Ridge/Rake tile on rake edges to complete a traditional tile aesthetic.

This component can also be used to box in the rake and butt tile to the rake edge for a distinct appearance. 

tile-fastener-screw.pngHip Starter Tile

The hip starter tile is recommended for hip installations. Simlpy begin with a hip starter tile on the eave edge and continue up the rake with hip/ridge/rake trim tile. For applications requiring intersections of multiple hips, or ridge and hips, the hip starter tile can be coped to provide a traditionally, beautiful tile look. 

Tile Fasteners

tile-fastener-screw.pngQuarrix Tile Fasteners are heavy-duty, corrosion resistant, exterior grade tile roofing screws specially engineered and recommended for securing composite roof tile to the roof deck. The roofing tile fasteners high-low thread configuration and spade-point quickly and easily penetrate wood, steel and composite materials. Tested to SAE J78 standard with an overall fastener length of 2-3/4” and 1-1/2” thread meets installation specifications.

Featured Products 

StormStop Ridge Vent

StormStop ridge vent provides superior protection that stops snow, rain, sand and bugs from entering the attic. Fitted with our patented weather-blocker, this technology allows the material’s exterior surface to repel water so that it beads up and rolls out of vent, while the interior surface remains breathable allowing air and mositure to flow out.

 

 

Smart Plug™ Roof Patch

SmartPlug™ Roof Patch is the smartest solution for covering holes in the roof fast. It makes converting from static vents to ridge ventilation products faster and easier than traditional methods. Place it, nail it, done!
