When you think of tile roofing, you likely think of that iconic Spanish or Mediterranean design style. Clay tile roofing is one of the oldest and most common roofing materials in the world, and modern updates to its strength and fire resistance have allowed it to remain competitive with newer synthetic roofing materials.
Tile roofs have withheld a reputation as the most durable, timeless roofing material available, and many homeowners are already aware of these benefits. However, what they may not know and understand as well is concrete tile roofing and the benefits it offers. Concrete roof tiles take the benefits of clay tiles a step further in their design capabilities, testing, and sustainability. In this blog, we are going to take a look at some of the reasons to choose concrete tile roofing.
Longevity & Durability
Quality concrete roof tiles, like those offered by the roofing contractors at Express Roofing, can last anywhere from 30 to 50 years with the proper care and maintenance. These tiles are manufactured to last for an aesthetically pleasing and durable roof for your home. When properly installed, they are resistant to hail, heavy rains and winds, and other adverse weather conditions. The composition of concrete tile roofing prevents any burning, curling, rotting, or rusting. Not to mention, concrete roofing is a system of overlapping, waterproof tiles, leaving homeowners with an almost impenetrable roof!
Contemporary concrete roof tiles are most commonly made from a mixture of cement, graded sands, pigments that are formed into numerous tile colors, patterns, and designs. In fact, manufacturers produce residential roofing tiles to suit almost any home’s architectural style, from contemporary to European, New England Colonial, or historic designs. What’s more, concrete roof tiles can be fixed to just about any surface, including close to vertical. Roof tiles can be flat or round, can simulate wood shakes, or seek to duplicate centuries-old designs. Because concrete roofing tiles are manufactured in a wide array of colors and styles it is easier to coordinate your roof with exterior colors.
One of the more appealing characteristics to homeowners of concrete tile roofing is that they require minimal maintenance and is generally limited to gutters, protrusion flashing, and venting. If a section of the roofing system needs modification or is damaged, only the affected tiles will need to be replaced.
Improved Indoor Comfort
Concrete roofing tiles allow better circulation of air than other roofing materials above and below them, so the result is that they can release heat energy better. This helps with keeping the indoor temperature of your home at a comfortable level.
