Historical Clay Roof Tile…Preserving Legacy

Replacement clay roof tile for a historical or old building is often impossible to find. If the tile is an extruded product, MCA can reproduce the tile without any minimum piece requirement or tooling charge.

Simply provide a sample piece of the old existing tile for the MCA factory to match.

MCA has successfully matched and recreated tile for historical institutions and landmarks and produces many matches of tiles from old clay companies.

Energy Star® and Cool Roof rated colors available that can qualify for LEED Points.

As with all MCA tiles, a 50-Year Limited Warranty is available.
