Tile Roofing for the New Home

No matter where the home resides, the roof plays an important role. Having a more durable roof installed when the home is constructed can save you a lot in the end. With tile roofing, you can save on both air conditioning and heating costs, and influence the value of the property. A well-cared for roof of this type can last for over 100 years. According to different sources, tile roofing is one of the oldest and most used types of roofing in the world. In fact, evidence was found that tile roofing was used before 10,000 BC in locations in North America, Egypt, and Rome.
