WHY CLAY TILE ROOFING?
Clay tile roofing provides great aesthetics for homes with a southwestern or Spanish Mission design as well as some modern design, and comes in a variety of colors. Tile roofing has an exceptionally long life cycle – and is expected to have a greater lifespan than that of the material on which the roofing rests. Tile does not rot or burn, and it cannot be harmed by insects. It requires little maintenance, and comes in a variety of colors, types, styles and brands. The clay tiles themselves are fragile, so walking on them can be difficult. Although they are fragile to weight, they are extremely resistent to the elements including harmful UV rays.
Ventilation & Insulation
Natural air ventilation under the tile creates a heat transfer barrier that can provide the benefit of a cooler house in the summer and a warmer house in the winter.
Independent testing performed at the Department of Energy’s National Lab has demonstrated that tiles have the ability to cut the transfer of heat by up to 70%.
Roofing tiles have some of the lowest lifecycle costs of any roofing material. Centuries-old tile roofs are still enduring today! Tile roofs have an expected average lifespan of 50 years or more.
Roof tiles can match any architectural style required for the building structure. They are designed to emulate traditional barrel style or other roofing materials such as wood and slate.
Materials do not deplete limited natural resources and have no chemical preservatives used in the production; all waste can be recycled and does not go into land fills.
Severe Weather Resistant
Roof tiles provide a tough, water-shedding outer shell with the underlayment working as an extra shield, and can resist damage from hailstones as large as 2”. The tiles are designed and tested for 150 MPH wind speeds.
