Tile has long been a favorite choice for roofing for centuries due to their great endurance. Over time, as labor and installation costs increased, tile roofing has become one of the few premium roof options, where they are the most expensive options due to their great benefits.
The Advantages of Tile Roofing
Tons of Options
Extremely versatile, tile comes in shingles, sheets, barrel form, or tile form. They come in a multitude of colors and can be mixed and matched to create a mosaic effect.
Tile lasts a minimum of 50 years, all the way up to 100 years, sometimes outlasting the owners who purchased it! They are great for homes that are planned to stay in families for generations as it makes for great restoration roofing. If you want a roof that can withstand all extreme weather, tile can. It is also one of the only roofing types that are fireproof since it was literally created in a kiln.
Tile is a great insulator. No matter what type of tile you choose, whether it be concrete, clay, or ceramic, all tile has some form of reflectivity and insulating purposes. When tile bakes in the kiln, tiny bubbles of air are formed, allowing heat to escape. When placed on the roof, the same effect applies.
Insects and animals find their way through almost any other roofing type. But not tile or stone! You will never experience rotting or decay from your tile roof.
