Clay & Concrete Tile Roofs
Tile roofs come in many styles, and each has its own preferred applications and beauty. An exotic sense of romance is associated with clay and concrete roof tiles. Tile complements everything from traditional to modern architecture. Tile commonly appears on Florida Spanish, Mediterranean, Historic, or Contemporary inspired homes.
In addition to their beauty, tile roofs are extremely durable, lasting for centuries in some cases. Whether made of fired clay or concrete, individual tiles are often molded in a barrel shape, and reinforcing their strength is tile roofing’s interlocking mode of installation.
Benefits of Tile Roofs:
• Durability & Investment
Clay roof tile has been used for centuries worldwide and for good reason. Both clay roof tile and its modern partner, concrete, are not only beautiful but also extremely durable. With proper building design and installation, tile roofs can last 50 to 100 years or more. In fact, in Asia and Europe, many structures with clay roof tiles have remained not simply intact but also functional and beautiful for centuries. They do not rot in wet climates and are not susceptible to destruction by pests. They can be used in any climate or region and can withstand the severest weather conditions, including fire, wind, and snow. For these reasons, most roof tile manufacturers offer warranties of at least 50 years. It can raise your roof value as much as 50%.
• Weather Resistant

With the continuous growth of tile roofs and demand for green products, tile roof sales are expanding rapidly nationwide and here in our local region.

Flashing and underlayment are the roof’s foundation. Whether the roof is slate, Spanish clay tile, or Cement tile flashing and underlayment are the keys to the longevity of your roofing system.
