Tile roofing holds a multitude of benefits over asphalt, wood shake and other roofing materials. Some of the benefits include:
Most properly installed tile roof systems will last 100 years or more with minor maintenance. Tile roofs are extremely resistant to severe weather and are one of the most impact resistant roofing products in the world.
With the wide variety of styles shapes and colors available, tile roofing systems are among the most aesthetically pleasing and unique roofing options on the market.
Unlike wood shakes, concrete and clay tiles are virtually fireproof, maintaining a class ‘A’ fire resistance rating. Many cities and counties across Colorado and nationwide are recommending homeowners with wood shake roofs transition to a fire resistant product like concrete tile to prevent wildfire damage.
Because of the superior thermal capacity of roof tiles and the ventilated air space created by their raised batten system, a tile roof can lower air conditioning costs in hotter climates and produce more constant temperatures in colder regions.
Both clay and concrete tiles are made from naturally occurring materials that do not deplete precious resources. In addition, reclaimed or salvaged tiles have even less environmental impact since they are being repurposed for a second home. Custom Tile Roofing prides itself on being ‘green’ for over 3 decades, even before such a sentiment was prevalent in the public consciousness.
While tile roofing systems may cost more initially, their superior longevity will outlast 5-10 cycles of asphalt roof replacement, ultimately saving you money in the long run.
Increased Property Value
The increased curb appeal, durability and energy efficiency of tile roofing systems makes them a preferred choice for many homebuyers, significantly raising the value of your home.
