Tile roofing is an appealing roofing option commonly featured on sloped roofs. This roofing material is extremely durable and capable of lasting numerous decades when installed correctly.
While tile materials are more expensive than other options, many property owners believe their aesthetic, durability, and longevity more than justify the price. Additionally, the extended lifespan of this long-lasting roofing material results in a comparatively low cost in the long run.
Tile roofing is an excellent choice for roofs that experience extreme heat or exposure to salty air. Many styles are also efficient at shedding rainfall, making tile roofing ideal for Denver properties with the fast bursts of heavy rain fall.
Tiles are available in a vast array of colors, profiles, and shapes that give any building a distinctive, beautiful roof. Although often associated with the coastal styles, clay and concrete roof tiles can match any style of architecture, including colonial and contemporary.
The clay tiles are environmentally friendly as they are made from natural material and cannot suffer damage from fire. Their shape protects against strong winds while also creating an air pocket that insulates the home.
The most common clay color is Terra-Cotta, although potential clay tile colors include all of the natural earth tones of white, yellow, orange, and brown. Other colors are possible with the addition of enamels to create ceramic tiles.
Concrete tiles can simulate multiple different styles with a variety of profile options, and a paint-like material can finish the exposed surfaces of the roofing. Concrete tiles also features additional water locks to prevent leaks.
Tile roofing is exceptionally heavy and challenging to install. Potential buildings must possess a substantial roof structure capable of handling the weight, which can reach thousands of pounds, and buildings may require structural reinforcement. Tiles are also best suited only for roofs with relatively steep slopes.
Installation of the tiles requires professional contractors with extensive experience as tile roofing requires meticulous measurement and placement in a specific pattern to ensure that no moisture penetrates the roof. The tiles need to be cut precisely to form all of the corners of the roof and any intersecting parts of the roof. Our tile crews are experts at getting the perfect fit for any type of tile roofing that comes out looking amazing.
Tile roofing boasts a long list of benefits unrivaled by nearly any other material, the most easily noticeably being natural aesthetics. The beauty of tile roofing has held value for thousands of years while reliably maintaining its color and shape for a an exceptionally long lifespan.
The roofing material’s prominence in certain climates also results from the tile’s excellent energy efficiency. Tile roofing features exceptional thermal properties that reduce heat loss or gain due to the natural air ventilation under the roof, creating a heat transfer barrier and lowering energy costs.
Tile roofing offers unique lifetime value as a substantial investment for customers seeking the premier roofing material for their building. After installation, tile roofs are incredibly easy to repair and require practically no maintenance. Houses that utilize this roofing material enjoy higher appraisal value and can typically sell at higher prices.
