Daltile is proudly showcasing its Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tile at this week’s Roofing Contractors Association of Texas (RCAT) regional tradeshow. Hosting the largest booth at the show, Daltile’s goal at RCAT is to effectively display its beautiful porcelain roofing tiles and educate attendees on the extreme durability and other benefits of roofing a home with porcelain.
“As the well-known leader in the tile industry, we are now bringing the innovation of porcelain roofing tile to market,” said Troy Draper, vice president of customer experience and store operations at DalTile Corporation. “Porcelain roofing tile is a game-changer for the specialty roofing products segment — with the potential to outperform and outsell slate, clay, concrete and metal roofing options.”
“RCAT is an important show and a key contractor demographic for us, because homes in Texas must withstand extreme weather, so the durability and longevity of Daltile’s Perennial Porcelain Roofing Tile is a perfect roofing solution for this part of the country,” said Ross Crum, senior director of roofing sales for Daltile. “An especially severe weather issue that Texas roofs must withstand on a regular basis is hail. Perennial is the ideal solution for this weather hazard, because our roofing tiles are ‘Class Four Hail Rated’ which is the highest rating available. Daltile’s porcelain roofing tiles earned this impressive durability and longevity rating through testing and certification from an independent, reputable, professional testing facility, Intertek Labs, and this rating means a lot to a roofing contractor. Perennial is also TDI (Texas Department of Insurance) approved (R#-641). This is a substantial plus for contractors servicing the Texas coastal regions that are impacted by hurricanes and extreme weather. Texas is also intrinsically a big market for roofing materials, because it is a large state that is currently growing at a more robust rate than many of the other markets in the United States.”
