Asphalt is the most popular roof material throughout the US. It’s relatively inexpensive, durable, and has good insulating properties. However, tile is also an excellent option. Whereas you’ll have to have your asphalt roof replaced every decade or two, a tile roof will likely never have to be replaced during your lifetime. Sure, a tile roof will cost more to install, and tiles are inherently more expensive than asphalt, but there are many advantages to tile, and plenty of people have found that it’s a better option. Here are some reasons why you should consider upgrading your roof to tile.
Practically speaking, tile roofs are more attractive to potential buyers, so if you’re considering putting your home on the market anytime in the next 5+ years, a tile roof is a wise investment. Tile roofs are definitely more attractive than asphalt ones, plus potential buyers won’t have to worry about the cost and hassle of having it replaced anytime soon – maybe not during their entire lifetimes. Asphalt shingles simply can’t match the beauty of clay and concrete tiles, which are available in hundreds of colors and finishes. Give your home real “wow” factor with a gorgeous new tile roof – you’ll be so glad you did!
If you’re looking to purchase a roof that’ll really stand the test of time, clay or concrete tiles are an ideal choice. Tile roofs, when properly designed and installed, can last between 50-100 years – often even longer. Tile roofs aren’t susceptible to pests, and they never rot in wet conditions. They also withstand fire, earthquakes, and the severest weather conditions, including hail, wind, and snow. Many roof tile manufacturers offer product warranties of at least 50 years. Compare that to asphalt roofs, which if you’re lucky, last about 20 years.
Many of us are more aware of how our decisions impact the environment around us than ever before. If you choose a clay or concrete roof, you can feel good about it because both materials are relatively environmentally friendly. Clay and concrete roof tiles are made from natural, renewable materials, plus they’re manufactured without toxic chemicals. Old tiles can be recycled to make new roofs or other products. And remember, tile roofs have to be replaced far less frequently than asphalt shingles, further adding to their green cred.
