Tile roofs are one of the most popular roofing materials in the nation—and with their superb beauty and durability, it’s easy to understand why. Tile roofing systems are available in a variety of colors , textures, and styles to match the design of your existing roof. Modern roofing tiles are even available in mission, rounded, and flat styles.
The type of roofing tile used on your home will be based on your own personal needs and preferences. For maximum durability, concrete materials are ideal, as they often provide a lifespan of 50 years or more. What’s more, because they can be manufactured in any area, concrete tiles also tend to be less expensive than clay—although they can be designed to mimic the look of clay materials.
Of course, many homeowners prefer the look and feel of clay roofing tiles. However, it is important to know that clay materials cost much more than concrete products—and the replacement costs can also be significantly higher as well. This is primarily due to the fact that clay tile can only be produced in areas near a clay quarry, which leads to additional transportation and freight costs.
Regardless of whether you use concrete or clay tiles, all of today’s roofing tiles are designed to withstand the harshest elements, including rain, snow, wind, and hail. In fact, both clay and concrete tiles have been shown to withstand winds of 150 miles per hour or more. Tile roofing materials also require little maintenance and can help reduce energy costs.
Although tiles are a great choice for any roof, due to the weight of the materials used in tile roofing systems, it is extremely important that the person who installs the tile has the appropriate technical expertise. If a strong frame is not constructed, the tiles may become too heavy—causing the structure to collapse and risking permanent damage to your home.
