Rectangular clay tiles may be called flat shingle, slab shingle or simply, 'plain' tiles - although the tiles pictured rather belie that term.

Clay roofing tile is captures a wide range of colors, ranging from subtle hues to warm earthy tones, to bold glazed primary colors.

The butt lines may be smooth and level, or, they may be warped a bit and produce aninteresting variation on an otherwise long and straight vertical line of the roof.

Clay tiles live on and on, improving by developing the desired patina of age. This North Carolina company offers a variety of new and salvaged roofing tiles.
