All About Tile Roofing
Tile roofing is known as one of the most popular roofing product in the world. This is due to its reputation for durability beyond compare, energy cost savings, and protection like no other roofing material. Here are some great reasons why tile is the roof of choice for so many houses.
Tile is Designed for Long Term Performance
Over a century of proper field performance in other parts of the world has given tiles the longest track record of performance compared to other roofing materials like as asphalt shingles and metal roofing. The leading-edge engineering design provides a natural water shedding and ventilation feature which enables tiles to be the primary roof covering in warm and cold climates (even diminishing ice damming in colder climates). The heavier weight and stronger strength allows tile to meet the expected capacities of today’s design requirements for all of the climatic regions.
Available in a Wide Variety of Design-Inspired Colors and Profiles
Roof tiles come in many colors, shapes, and sizes all ready to enhance the exterior style of homes, apartments, and more. Thanks to modern innovations, concrete and clay roof tile manufacturers can produce tiles to suit any architectural style, from realistic Spanish and Mediterranean to New England Colonial, historic, or contemporary. Tiles can be flat or round, be modeled to look like wood shakes, or seek to replicate centuries-old roofing materials.
