Tile roofing can be a really investing project. It takes a lot of time and precision to make sure the tiles are installed correctly and to the design specified by a homeowner. However, they can be worth it for those homeowners that can afford to hire a professional like Pro Home Construction for this project. Tiles are very versatile in what they are capable of design wise and do add value to homes. Below is more information on this.
Why Tile Roofing?
- What is a tile roof?
A tile roof is a roof made from clay, ceramic, concrete or slate tiles. Each tile is secured to the roof deck by nails. Just like asphalt shingles, a tile roof is completed by starting at the bottom or lower most part of the roof, securing a row of tiles, then overlapping the next or second row of tiles over the first.
- More durable
The biggest advantage to tile roofing is their resistance to water, frost, insects, and more. This should be a huge selling point for those looking to maintain a roof that will virtually maintain itself.
- Longer life span
A properly installed tile roof should last a lifetime, not decades. These clay or stone roofs are extremely sturdy and far less prone to the wind carrying their materials away.
- More climate control
Tile roofing can lower your energy bill by 2%. The air ventilation under the tiles create a heat transfer barrier which can keep your home cooler in the summer and prevent more heat loss in the winter.
- Recyclable materials
Tile roofs are made from recyclable materials like clay or stone or concrete instead of asphalt or rubber materials like some other roofs.
- More control over design
Tile roofing materials like clay or concrete can be shaped to resemble other styles of shingles. They are very versatile and give the homeowner more control of the aesthetics of their roof.
- It is an investment
These roofs can be more expensive than other type of roof installs, but for good reason; a tile roof could last you a lifetime.
- Add to your home’s value
A tile roof can add to your home’s resale value. Talk to an appraiser to understand this benefit more thoroughly.
- Earthquake safety
Tile roofs exceed current seismic load requirements for building materials when installed to the current fastening requirements.
- Hail resistant
Concrete tile roofs have been found able to resist damage from hail even if that hail is at the size of a golfball.
