THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY VEREA IS YOUR BEST CHOICE IN ROOF TILE - GRADE 1 QUALITY, UNRIVALED DURABILITY, "COOKED DIRT" SUSTAINABILITY, A LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY, AND COLOR PERMANENCE ARE JUST THE START.
VEREA PRODUCTS EXCEED THE INDUSTRY STANDARDS BY SIGNIFICANT MARGINS
The ASTM C1167 standard specifications for roof tile are stringent and can be difficult to meet for lesser clay tile brands. Many South American tile lines have a hard time passing the traverse breaking strength, water absorption, and permeability tests due to their primitive manufacturing techniques. In recent quarterly tests done on randomly selected Verea barrel tile we had traverse breaking strength results over 1200 lbs when the minimum required to pass this testing is 350 lbs. We will proudly share our most recent quarterly testing results with any prospective clients. Our transparency regarding test results confirms that Verea is a superior product that can stand up to any competitors product in clay or concrete.
SUSTAINABILITY WHAT COULD BE GREENER THAN COOKED DIRT?
The only ingredients used to make VEREA clay tile are clay, water, and fire.
Verea has certified its commitment to the sustainable management of the company by implementing an environmental management system that meets the requirements of the European EMAS regulations and the international ISO 14001. Verea tiles are a natural product made of clay and water, which are inert and harmless to the environment. The most advanced techniques are used during their manufacturing process in order to ensure the optimum protection of the environment, such as using recycled raw materials, firing with natural gas, making use of the energy from the hot air moving from the kiln towards the dryer, and integral computerized control of the production process.
Verea ceramic roofs are highly efficient, offering excellent thermal insulation that minimizes the energy costs of the building. The range of Verea tile finishes makes it possible to create roofs that blend into their environments with long-lasting colors. Verea tiles can help you to obtain points in the LEED® sustainable building classification system:
Heat Island Effect Verea red tiles meet the required Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of 29. SRI Red Verea Tile = 47.5
Recycled Content More than 40% of the clay used in manufacturing Verea tiles are recycled (a by-product of quartz mining)
DID YOU KNOW? Verea Clay tile are a much better thermal insulator than asphalt shingles, concrete roof tile, or metal roof panels. Due to its low thermal conductivity, clay tile will keep your home cooler than other roofing materials. Aside from the obvious benefit of lowered utility bills the lower thermal conductivity of clay roof tile will also protect and extend the life of your roofing underlayment.
THE BEST WARRANTY IN THE BUSINESS VEREA OFFERS THE ONLY LIFETIME WARRANTY IN THE ROOF TILE INDUSTRY.
Every tile we make comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Unlike many competitors who charge for their warranties Ceramica Verea's is free of charge. The only thing you need to do is fill out our warranty form and return it us within 90 days of the installation of the roof tile and submit it Ceramica Verea USA via email or mail. Ceramica Verea warrants that our "Spanish S", Barrel, and Flat profiles will be free of manufacturing defects for the lifetime of the original purchaser of the roof tile. This warranty does not cover the quality of the installation (as this is done by 3rd parties). A roof tile could be considered defective if it fails to comply with the norms set forth the the ASTM C1167. “Lifetime” means for as long as the original owner owns the property and is alive.
COLOR PERMANENCE UNLIKE CONCRETE TILE, STONE COATED METAL TILE, OR ASPHALT SHINGLES -VEREA CLAY TILE WILL NEVER FADE.
We offer three thru-color options with our RED, BROWN, and GRAPHITE products. Just about every other brand can only make their tile in red and apply spray on finishes. These brands have difficulty when producing darker colored tile as scuff marks and surface scratches that occur during delivery and install can be very visible even from a distance -Verea avoids this by offering dark thru-color options VEREA BROWN & VEREA GRAPHITE.
Our spray finish aged red tile options VINTAGE, FUME, ANEJA, and JACOBEA are sprayed on our base red tile. VEREA MOCHA and VEREA SANTIAGO BLEND are sprayed on our VEREA BROWN base color so surface scratches caused during the transport and installation of the tile are barely visible compared to other brands who spray dark colors and blends on red tile.
ASIDE FROM OUR SUPERIOR CLAY WE ALSO HAVE THE MOST ADVANCED MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN THE INDUSTRY. HAVE A LOOK AT OUR STATE-OF-THE-ART MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN GALICIA, SPAIN.
