This is usually caused by using inferior quality tile. A high quality clay tile will carry a warranty against manufacturer's defects AND warranty the color. If not they are not using a high quality color glaze on the tile.

Do you know the manufacturer? Most of the larger manufacturers coat the tile with a thin glaze that they claim is to protect the face of the tile against scarring during shipping. This gives the tile an almost "wet" look when newly installed, but within a few weeks you start to see fading do to the coating wearing off. But if that is whats happening, it shouldn't be that noticable, unless the tile weren't shuffled very well off the pallets. Do you have any pictures that you could post?

I just had a house built and it has an orange clay tile barrel roof. The front tile caps that finish off the peaks are turning a whitish color. The house is only a year old. I live in Houston Texas and we have very hot and humid summers. Does the heat have anything to do with this or is it a situation of a poor quality product?
