We're building a new house at about 5000' altitude and are concerned
about reports that concrete tile roofs fade. Monier seems to be
particularly prone to this (as well as other problems). Can anyone
recommend a good manufacturer that is widely available in the Western
I live in Phoenix. I would think fading would be a color issue not a
manufacture issue. Certain colors do not hold up well when exposed to the
sun for long periods of time. I have not seen a soild red tile in a long
time. Most are varying earth tones. Either the domed or flat types come in
a maze of colors.
5000 feet seems a tad high for a tile roof to me. How much freesing and
snow do you expect in your location? I would check the neighbors to see
what is on their roofs and ask the preformance of the types you like.
