This week we are pleased to introduce DuraTile Inc. as we continue our interview series highlighting our related companies. DuraTile is somewhat “the new kid on the block” but they have so much to offer the Construction Industry with their environmentally friendly roofing system.
DuraTile Inc. was conceptualized in March of 2010 in Barbados and after months of market research and improving technologies, it was officially introduced to the Caribbean market as a manufacturer of a more modern roofing alternative. DuraTile Inc. processes PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottle waste into attractive, high quality roofing shingles by means of environmentally safe technology.
Virtually maintenance free, the synthetic shingles have an authentic slate appearance and are currently available in nine standard colors.
The DuraTile Roofing System is highly hurricane resistant and withstands the elements especially the sun and sea sprays, therefore making it an ideal roofing solution for the Caribbean. Since DuraTile shingles are poor heat conductors, their use promotes cool interiors while being aesthetically pleasing to any architectural design.
Q: Where are you located?

Q: Have you introduced any new products recently?

Q: What are the benefits customers can enjoy through using your products?
A: - Eco-Friendly: The roofing shingles are manufactured using technology which recycles plastic materials. This reduces the amount of plastic waste that would otherwise be filling up the landfills and since plastic is known for its inability to decompose, this quality lends itself to an extended life cycle for your roof.

- Lightweight & Durable: DuraTile’s products and service are backed by a 20 year warranty.

- Economical: Expect high quality at an affordable price with the DuraTile Roofing System.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
A: To establish the DuraTile Roofing System as the preferred eco-friendly roofing option in the Caribbean. DuraTile Inc. is also exploring the production of plant pots and the manufacture of a plastic product with the appearance of lumber to be used as its alternative.
