Tile roofs help conserve energy in cold and warm climates since air can circulate under the loosely laid tiles making homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Designed for Long Term Performance
Tiles provide a longer track record of performance compared to other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles.
Available in a Variety of Colors and Styles
Roof tiles come in many colors, shapes, and sizes. In fact, manufacturers can produce tiles to suit any architectural style, from authentic Spanish and Mediterranean to New England Colonial, historic, or contemporary. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Maintain their Color
Colors in tile come from natural sources which are extremely durable. Tiles may experience varying degrees of color softening after extended exposure to the elements. However, some tile manufacturers guarantee their tile against fading for 50 years.
Long Lasting Protection
The weight of tile is important because it provides enduring protection. Tile is becoming the re-roofing product of choice due not only to its durability but also to its ease of maintenance. Single tiles are much easier to repair than other roofing materials.
Can Sustain High Winds
Due to its resistance to severe weather, concrete and clay tiles continue to be the preferred roofing material among homeowners in the Southeast. With proper installation, tile roofing is one of a few select roofing systems that is proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles per hour found in Florida.
Tile roofs are one of the most cost-effective choices due to their long lifespan—50 to 100 years or more. Both concrete and clay tile outlast other roofing materials, with manufacturers offering warranties from 50 years to the life of the structure.
Require Limited Maintenance
All roofing systems require some maintenance, and certain climates and regions have special issues to address regardless of the type of roofing system. Under normal conditions, tile roofs require minimal maintenance.
