Variety is the spice of life. And clay or concrete roofing tiles offer an array of profiles, styles, finishes and colors.
Of the two, clay tiles are more expensive and nowadays concrete can look every bit as upscale. Erase images of a drab gray roof from your mind. Innovations in manufacturing concrete roofing tiles have made it possible to recreate traditional Spanish-style ceramic roofs and other designs.
The second most commonly used roofing material in the United States, concrete and clay tiles add more to a steep-slope roof than curb appeal.
Clay and concrete tiles are highly durable and water shedding. Through rain, snow, high winds, hail and earthquakes, a properly installed tile roof can withstand the elements providing years of worry-free performance. And the benefits don’t stop there. Other advantages include:
- Lasts a Lifetime: According to a 2007 study from the National Association of Home Builders, concrete tile is one of only three roofing materials that will last a lifetime. The other two are clay tile and copper.
- Energy Efficient: Tile roofs help conserve energy in cold and warm climates since air can circulate under the loosely laid tiles making homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
- Value: The improved energy efficiency offered by both concrete and clay tiles transfer to your wallet as more efficient use of heating and cooling systems means lower energy bills.
