Boral Roofing's concrete and clay tile roofing is ideal for building resilient housing by providing increased resistance to (and protection from) fire, hail, wind, frost and seismic activity.

Boral Roofing’s Grade 1 clay tile (a rating from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) indicating the highest certification possible for resistance to severe frost action and the least water absorption) is a roof solution for frost. All Grade 1 clay roof tiles and freeze-thaw resistant concrete roof tiles pass a stringent testing process during which the product endures 50 freeze/thaw cycles without cracking or material degradation, demonstrating resistance to frost related damage.
