There are many advantages to installing tile residential roofing, regardless of which material you choose. Some of these advantages include:
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.
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.
Unlike wood, tiles roofs will never decay.
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.
