Is Tile Right for You?
Tile roofs are an aesthetically pleasing roofing material. Besides their beauty, tile roofs are also extremely durable, lasting for at least 75 years and often over 100 years. When you install one on your home, you’re almost guaranteed that you’ll never have to do another roof replacement.
The most common type of tile roofs are clay and concrete, which are available in many different styles and colors. Tile is impervious to rot and insect damage, environmentally-friendly and low-maintenance.
The main drawback to tile is that it requires a roofer with the experience to install it because these roofs are so much heavier than traditional roofing materials. A roofing contractor will need to ensure that your roof can take the weight, or the structure will have to be fortified.
