Our History

Tile Roofs Canada has been supplying reclaimed and hard-to-find material to clients around North America for over 20 years. We’ve worked with homeowners, builders, and roofers. We understand that time is home and repairs need to be completed as quickly as possible so we can offer overnight freight and air cargo services if needed.

Insurance Repairs

Having worked with AIG, Chubb, Lloyd’s, TD, Aviva, State Farm, Berkshire Hathaway, Liberty Mutual, and Allstate we’re experienced with solutions that keep both the client and the insurance company happy. Damage from severe weather including hail, wind, or fire are all things we’ve experienced.

Should the material required be unavailable we work with multiple manufactures which can recreate individual pieces or entire roofs. This allows us to salvage areas of tile blending in our new “aged” tile with the existing. This approach has saved insurance companies millions of dollars in unnecessary replacement. The idea of ” replace the whole roof” is a situation that benefits neither the client nor the insurance company.
