In addition to their intrinsic beauty, tile roofs are extremely durable, lasting for centuries in some cases. Whether made of clay or concrete (the latter is more colorfast), individual tiles are often molded in barrel shapes for interlocking installation. Weight will be an issue, so be sure ask a structural engineer if your roof framing will support a tile application.
These are a variation on the solar shingles and can be installed on top of your existing asphalt shingles or built into a new roof construction. The real beauty of these solar slates is that they can be styled to match the color profile of conventional slates. You can cover your entire roof with these while still maintaining the look and feel of a traditional roof.
