The Benefits of Tile Roofing

Clay roofs are known to withstand high winds, hail and even fire. Tile roofs will never decay and are impervious to insect damage and rot. Tile roofs are energy efficient and help maintain internal home temperatures. Because tile roofs are made from geological minerals, they’re every environmentally friendly, since they can be returned to the earth after they are removed. This brings us to the most beneficial attribute found with clay roofs. Tile roofs rarely require maintenance, repairs, or leaks, and can easily last 100 years

In the central Texas climate where extreme heat, occasional hailstorms, and the odd random freeze can affect our homes, it’s crucial to have a durable roof. If you’re looking into building or replacing your roof, you may want to consider tile roofing. 

Gorgeous and long-lasting, tile roofs have many benefits when it comes to your home in Austin, Elgin, or elsewhere in Texas. Tile roofing is notorious for holding up against hot climates, which is why you will see many of them throughout Florida, Texas, California, and more of the Southwest. Clay roofing tiles are also especially energy efficient during the hotter months, giving you thermal protection that allows hot air to escape easily and cools down your home. This requires you to put less pressure on your AC.

Clay tile roofs require less maintenance than many other types of roofing like shingle roofing or metal roofing. Other than occasional cleanings, you aren’t required to do yearly maintenance or inspections to keep your roof long-lasting. Tile is also more impervious to damage from rot, insects, hail, high winds, and more. It is rare that a tile roof leaks, and it will never decay like wood or other materials might. 

Of course, there are a few cons to balance out the pros of tile roofing. For one, tile is more expensive than many other materials. While most would argue it’s worth spending more to ensure such a long-lasting roof, the cost may not fit into your budget. Clay tile costs more than concrete, so if you need a more cost-efficient version of a tile roof, maybe it’s time to spring for  concrete tile. Tile is also very heavy, and can crack or break under a certain amount of damage. You’ll need to be sure the framing and structure is extremely solid under your tile roofing. It also requires more difficult installation. The tiles are brittle, and may not be suitable for every roof and their various slopes.  However, under the right conditions, a professional Texas roofing company will gladly fit your roof with sturdy, beautiful tile.

You can get tile roofing in a variety of stiles, such as Spanish style, Scandia tiles, Roman tiles, French, or Barrel tiles. Talk with your local roofing professional to figure out what the best style is for your exact roof shape. Depending on how you want your home to look, your budget, and the slope of your roof, some styles will be better suited to you than others. It’s important to seek out good-quality, professional roofing services to install tile roofing and ensure a long-lasting, attractive, energy-efficient roof for your home.

Tile Roofs 101

Tile roofs are perhaps the most suitable for salty, coastal regions and areas that experience hot weather. In Central Texas, we have a prevailing SE wind that comes off of the Gulf of Mexico that most days is blowing brackish, humid air all the way to the central Texas region. Additionally, tile roofs can be practical for areas that receive lots of rain in a short amount of time. Texas also has this type of weather in March and April, and sometimes in October. Roofing framing needs to be extremely sturdy to support the weight of tile roofs, so be sure to consult with a professional like Bill Sprauer Roofing before considering the construction of a tile roof in central Texas.
