Tile roofs are commonly utilized in parts of the country like the Southwest and cities close to the ocean due to their excellent ability to resist extremely hot temperatures and salt found in the air. Tile’s resilience is only one factor that makes it a top choice. It is also one of the longest-lasting roofing materials, boasting a lifespan of around 70 years with proper care and maintenance.
Our crews have installed hundreds of tile roofs over the years and can
help you understand which type of tile will be best suited for your home.
Clay has been used as a roofing material for centuries,
speaking to its remarkable durability and longevity. If
sustainability is important to you, clay is a natural earth
material and completely eco-friendly.
Clay tiles are produced by molding the material and baking it at extremely high temperatures. Because it naturally comes from the earth, it comes in shades of brown, red, yellow and orange. The tiles can be sprayed with enamel prior to the kiln baking process in order to produce more diversity in color.
Clay is significantly lighter than concrete, making it an excellent choice for homes that can’t structurally support the weight of concrete tiles. Additionally, clay has about half the water absorption rate of concrete, making it less prone to stains and mildew growth.
This roofing material is produced by molding concrete into
tiles and tinting it to produce a wide variety of color options.
Because concrete tile is heavier, it is highly impact-resistant
when facing hail and hurricane-strength winds.
Concrete tile has an impressive lifespan of around 50 years with adequate care. It’s more versatile than clay in colder climates, as it holds up better in very low temperatures.
