Roof replacement accounts for 75% of all the roofing materials installed annually in the US. This is due to relatively short life-cycles of most roofing products that have been used over the past 20 to 30 years like wood shakes and asphalt shingles. When considering a roofing product for a reroof, life-cycle costs and other factors should be taken into account. Boral Roofing offers a full complement of lightweight clay and concrete products designed for use in reroof situations.
Weight is one of the primary considerations when reroofing. Most structures that were built over the past 50 years were designed to support roofing systems that do not weigh over 750 pounds per square (100 sq. ft.). Most building code agencies call for engineering reports and possible structural modifications if the roofing product in the system weighs more than 600 lbs. per sq. Boral Roofing produces a full line of lightweight products that are specially design for the reroof market that weigh under 600 lbs per sq., making them ideal for any reroof project.
ClayLite®: Our 1-Piece "S" Tile ClayLite profile is the same as our standard "S" Tile but weighs only 590 lbs. per square. Featuring a traditional 1-Piece "S" Mission profile and color palette, ClayLite® enables you to enhance the curb appeal and beauty of any project without the need for structural re-enforcement of changes typically need for these type of highly desirable clay tile roofing products. .
ClayMax®: Featuring a small double barrel profile, lightweight ClayMax is ideal for reroof applications. The profile is smaller than traditional Mission Tile, making it aesthetically pleasing on smaller projects where large profiles sometimes seems out of place. ClayLite® also weighs 590 lbs. per square and is available in variety of colors.
