Types of Tile Roofing
Tile roofs are available in a few different styles in both clay and concrete materials. Clay tiles increase home value, have greater durability, hold color better, and last longer than concrete tiles. However, they are also more expensive. Concrete tiles come in flat, low profile, and high profile options. The material is made with a blend of cement, sand, and water and can be made to look like stone, wood, or slate. Concrete tiles cost less than clay, but last about half as long at 50 years.
Advantages & Disadvantages of Tile Roofs
There are several advantages to selecting tile as your roofing material. Tile has greater durability than many other roofing materials and may last for many decades, or even a century! The strength of roofing tiles enables them to withstand harsh weather conditions.
There are, however, a few disadvantages, including:
- Not all tiles can withstand freezing. which is why tile is more common in warmer climates
- Tile is quite heavy and not all roof framing can withstand the weight of tiles
- Can be expensive, especially clay, which is twice the cost of concrete tiles
- More difficult to install and repair, compared with other roofing materials
