Residential Roofing Benefits of Clay Tile
There are many advantages to installing tile residential roofing, regardless of which material you choose. Some of these advantages include:
Long-lasting Residential Roofing
A tile roof can last over 100 years. Clay and concrete tile roofs have been known to withstand hail, high winds, and even fire. Once you install tile, you may never have to install another type of roofing again. Just in case, some manufacturers may offer a 50-year warranty for roofing.
Plenty of choices
Clay, concrete, and slate tiles come in a wide variety of colors and styles to match any home style, from Medieval to Contemporary European. Some styles even resemble traditional shingles or wood shakes.
Impervious to rot and insect damage
Unlike wood, tiles roofs will never decay.
Environmentally friendly material
Tile roofs are made from earth minerals, not chemicals, and can be ground up and recycled when they are removed.
The heavy thermal mass of tiles will help regulate indoor temperatures.
Leaks are almost unheard of, and it is very rare for tile roofs to require repairs or maintenance unless they break due to heavy impact.

Benefits of Residential Steel Metal Roofs
Metal roofs can last 40-70 years, depending on the material. Traditional asphalt roofing materials have an estimated life expectancy of roughly 12-20 years.
Durability of Residential Roofing
Some metal roofs can sustain wind gusts up to 140 miles per hour, will not corrode or crack, and may be impact-resistant (depending on which metal you choose). In addition, metal roofs don't need the periodic costly maintenance that other residential roofing materials often require. However, they should be inspected periodically to make sure no repairs are required.
Metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames during a wildfire or lightning strike.
Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which can reduce cooling costs by 10-25%.
Metal roofs not only have 25-95% recycled content, depending on the material used, but are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. In contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up as part of the building-related waste stream — up to 20 billion pounds per year.
