What you use on the roof can have a major impact on the environment simply because of the amount of materials needed. Clay tiles used for roofing have been around for hundreds of years. Both are natural materials that are energy-efficient and non-toxic, and can be recycled and disposed of without pollution. Tiles allow air flow on the surface of the roof, which keeps the home cool in hot weather.
