What Are The Benefits of Using Tile Roofing on Your Home?


Getting a new tile roof can be termed a true lifetime investment. Tile is among the most durable roofing material available. If you’re on the fence about getting tile roofing for your home, let us share some benefits with you.

Enhanced curb appeal – Contrary to what many people think, tile roofs are not limited to Mediterranean or Spanish architecture. In fact, roofing tiles are available in various styles, colors, and patterns that wouldn’t look out of place when installed on a home with a low-slope roof that normally have asphalt shingles or wood shakes installed. Concrete and ceramic tile options allow more flexibility when it comes to textures and colors.

Protection – Tile roofing can withstand anything that nature can throw at it, from wind and tree branches, to extreme heat and heavy rain. In addition to its resistance, it’s also fireproof and insect-resistant. Its toughness also makes it a cost-effective roofing choice when you consider its long lifespan compared to other roofing materials. Asphalt shingles can last as long as 20 to 30 years, while tile can last 50 with proper maintenance.

It’s a Greener Option – Tiles have always been sourced from sustainable materials, whether it’s traditional clay tiles or modern concrete and ceramic options. Given its prolonged life, it occupies landfill space much less often than any other roofing material.

Save on your energy bill – Concrete and ceramic tile are excellent insulators, which translates to warmer indoors during the winter.  Additionally, it absorbs much less heat during summer, which makes for cooler indoors. Both mean reduced cooling and heating, resulting in lower energy bills.
