Benefits of a Tile Roof

Homeowners searching for an elegant way to enhance the beauty and appeal of their home need look no further than tile roofing. Tile roofs not only make for an attractive exterior, but also offer numerous benefits that add to the longevity, protection, and performance of your roof. Here are some of the advantages of having a tile roof.

Variety of options. Tile offers a wide variety of designs. From slate, clay, and concrete to flat, imbrex, and pantiles, there are plenty of tile color and style choices. Homeowners can choose what best suits their taste by mixing and matching between traditional, Medieval, Spanish, or Contemporary European architectural styles.

Long-lasting. While they may have a high initial cost, tile roofs are extremely durable and can last several decades. In fact, many manufacturers guarantee their longevity by offering a 50-year warranty against color fading — as long as the roof tiles are installed by a professional contractor. Able to withstand high winds, hail, and even fire, clay and concrete roof tiles have been known to perform the longest in warmer climates.

Protective and efficient. Homes in Florida are regularly exposed to severe weather conditions that can damage roofs with traditional asphalt shingles. Unlike wood, tile roofs are wind resistant, impervious to damage from insect boring, offer protection against rot and decay, and provide natural water shedding and ventilation. Tile roofs are also energy efficient and environmentally-friendly; they help regulate indoor temperatures due to their heavy thermal mass and are made from recyclable earth minerals.

Low maintenance. When properly installed, tile roofs rarely suffer leaks and therefore require very little maintenance. In the event of a heavy impact to the roof due to storm debris, only the affected broken tiles would need to be replaced — not the entire roof.
