The BENEFITS of CLAY & CONCRETE TILE
Clay and concrete roof tiles are manufactured in a wide array of colors, from light shades to dark or multi-colored, making it easy to coordinate your roof with exterior colors. Roof tiles can match any architectural style. They are designed to emulate traditional barrel style or other roofing materials such as wood shakes and slate. Homes with a tile roof have higher appraised value and sell faster than comparable homes with asphalt shingles. Tile roofs have the lowest life cycle cost of any other roofing material. Centuries old tile roofs are still enduring today.
The cost of tile is a common misconception. With the rising costs of competing roofing products, concrete tile is not only an affordable alternative, but also a much more eco-friendly choice. Here’s why:
By installing tile on a ventilated roofing system you can reduce the cost of cooling your home. For those considering reroofing, most structures are designed to support much more than just roofing materials, the upgrade requirements for a tile roof are typically minimal. A structural engineer is best qualified to determine your needs. You can achieve greater curb appeal, higher resale value and unmatched longevity with a tile roof. Conventional asphalt shingle roofs require complete replacement in a relatively short amount of time compared to a tile roof, which can be a permanent solution and therefore more cost-effective.
