Clay and concrete tile roofs are a great option in The Valley

tile roofing installation

A classic look. Tile roofs are one of the oldest roofing materials available, and they provide a unique and beautiful appearance.

Tile roofs are an excellent option for homeowners. Clay and concrete tile roofs are often associated with Spanish style buildings, but they can be used on a variety of homes.

Tile roofs are designed to have an interlocking and/or overlapping layout for weather protection. Tile roofs are very common in warmer climates, but they are not ideal for areas that get consistent heavy rain or cold weather.

Benefits of tile roofing

Due to their similar composition and function, clay and concrete tiles offer many of the same benefits to homeowners:

  • Exceptional durability: Tile roofing is one of the oldest forms of roofing in the world, and properly installed roofs can last for over 100 years.
  • Resistance to elements: Tile roofing will not be affected by insects or fire, problems that can plague other materials. Tiles are also resistant to high winds and hail.
  • Variety of options: Clay and concrete tiles can come in a wide variety of colors and styles, allowing for homeowners to customize appearance to match any home or design idea.
  • Environmentally friendly: Tile is the most environmentally friendly roofing material available, as they are long lasting, easily recycled, and don't contain chemicals. These roofs also reflect UV rays and can help reduce your cooling costs.
  • Easy installation and maintenance: Both clay and concrete tile roofs are simple to install and generally have very low repair and maintenance costs over the life of the roof.

Although clay and concrete tiles offer some fantastic benefits for homeowners, they do share a couple drawbacks. First of all, the material is very heavy and the roof may require extra work before installation. Secondly, these materials can be broken by walking on the roof, which can cause some inconveniences. However, these concerns are not major and are easily outweighed by the many benefits.

A proven system. Interlocking tile roofing has been proven to provide homes with excellent protection.

Choosing between clay and concrete

While these two roofing materials share many of the same benefits, there are some differences. Concrete tile is more affordable than clay tile, and it can be designed to match the appearance of clay.

However, clay tiles offer a more authentic and traditional appearance for homeowners who are willing to make the investment. Additionally, concrete is considered to be somewhat more environmentally friendly while being easier to customize for appearance.

Factors to keep in mind with tile roofs

  • Underlayment: This is roofing material that is under your tile. Your underlayment is what actually keeps your roof from leaking. Yes, water does go under your tile and if the underlayment has any voids in it your roof will leak. The standard underlayment used is not very heavy. If your roof needs to have new underlayment installed, you should get the best that you can afford.
  • Cracked or Missing Tile: If you have tile that is broken or missing, the sun will very quickly deteriorate the underlayment material located under that tile. When this happens, you will start to experience leaks.
  • Improper Edge Detail: Do you have any fascia (the perimeter boards at the edge of your roof) that is rotting? Usually this occurs because of improper edge detail on your tile roof.
