The Beauty of Clay Tile
Studies show that clay tile roofs have a history dating back to the Neolithic period, about 12,000 years ago. Tile roofs have stayed popular for thousands of years because of their superior beauty and excellent durability. This premium roofing material can be flat or semi-cylindrical. It comes in various natural clay colors and manufacturers can augment these colors with kiln-fired coatings. Colors can include shades of red, brown, beige, and dark gray.
Clay tiles capture the romance of old-world architectural styles, particularly if roofers install them in the traditional waterfall manner. This roofing material can last for generations and grow in beautiful over time. As the tile age, they patinate. This results in unique variations for each tile, and can make your roof look one-of-a-kind. In addition, the color will not fade for 50 years. While traditionally tile is the material of choice for Spanish, Italian, and Mediterranean roofing, we can install tiles that will match any home style.
Other Great Benefits
Aside from its unique beauty, tile has many other great benefits. Tile can withstand 150 mph winds and they have exceptional hail resistance. They are also a sustainable roof material because of their very long life span. The natural air ventilation under the tile also creates a heat transfer barrier that can save you money on energy bills and keep your home comfortable. They are also easy to maintain and repair because we can replace individual tiles if necessary.
