Because of their resistance to extreme heat and salt air from the sea, tile roofs are very common in certain areas of the country such as Texas. Tile roofing has remarkable durability and can last up to 70 years if it is properly maintained. It’s not bad, right?
Benefits of tile roofing
Tile roofing offers many advantages over other roofing materials.
- Energy-efficient – Can lower energy costs by up to 20%
- Sustainable – Made from materials that do not deplete natural resources. The landfills don’t accept waste products.
- Variable – Can be molded to suit any architectural style and can look like other materials, such as slate or wooden shakes.
- Durable – Resistant to high winds and heat.
Clay tiles can be made by baking clay at high temperatures and molding it. Clay is an eco-friendly, natural earth material that many people find beneficial from an environmental perspective. Clay comes naturally in earth tones, but it can be painted with enamel before baking to create more tones to match any style.
Clay is also lighter than concrete tiles, which is a benefit for homes that cannot support too much roof weight. Clay isn’t as durable in extremely cold temperatures. Texas is therefore the ideal climate for this type of roofing. Clay tiles also absorb half as much water as concrete tiles. This makes them less susceptible to mildew and stains.
Concrete tile is more popular in Texas and closely resembles other types of tile, such as clay or slate. Concrete tile is versatile in terms of style and texture. Concrete tile is a green roofing material that has a low life cycle cost. This makes it an attractive choice for homeowners.
Concrete is more durable than clay in colder climates, and it can withstand very low temperatures well. This makes concrete versatile.
