Similar to metal roofs, tile roofs are high strength, durable and can provide the same energy and cost savings. Tile roofing provides the longest track record of performance, compared to traditional composition shingles such as asphalt. The modern engineered designs provide for natural water shedding and ventilation features, which allow the tile to be the primary roof covering in both warm and cold climates.
Roof tiles come in numerous colors, shapes and sizes. The possibilities are essentially unlimited as manufacturers can produce tiles to suit any architectural style from colonial to modern and everywhere in between. Roof tiles can be flat or round, simulate wood shakes or seek to replicate centuries-old roofing materials. Most importantly, tile roofs are long-lasting and will preserve the look and beauty of your home for years to come.
To maintain their long-lasting beauty, the weight of tile is important because it provides enduring protection without developing problems like other roofing materials. Tile is fast 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. 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.
All roofing systems require some maintenance, however tile roofs require minimal. With tile, maintenance is restricted to gutters, protrusion flashing and venting. With other roofing systems, maintenance may include coating, painting, cleaning and/or sealing the majority of the roof surface.
