Although Tile roofing systems are one of the most popular type of roofs for residential areas, they are also used as commercial roofing systems.
Tile roofs are sought after because of their proven performance and virtually limitless variety of colors and styles.
Tiles are typically created using concrete or clay and, thanks to modern innovations,
tile roofing can be used to suit many architectural styles such as authentic Spanish, Mediterranean and New England Colonial, historic or contemporary.
They can also be created flat, rounded or can even emulate other roofing materials such as wood shakes.
Clay and tile roofs are one of the most cost-effective choices for roofing systems because of their long lifespan.
A typical lifespan for a tile roof is 50 to 100 years or more with some manufacturers offering warranties that vary between 50 years to the life of the structure itself.
All roofing systems require maintenance and some climatic regions have special issues to address regardless of the type of roof.
However, under normal conditions, tile roofing systems are low maintenance and such maintenance is typically restricted to gutters, protrusion flashings and venting.
Also, due to its natural weather resistant qualities, concrete and clay tile roofing systems have been proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles an hour with proper installation.
However, as with any roofing system, proper installation is a key to extending its lifespan.
