by Daphne Construction in Roof | 0 comments

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. While there have been different types of roofing used over the times, tile roofing has always been used to some level. The most important thing to know, is that the foundation of the home or building needs to be laid out to support the weight of this type roofing. You can always add this type of roofing at a later time; however, if the support is not strong enough, support beams may need to be added first.


Here are some of the reasons you may want to have tile roofing installed on your new home.

Design options

Tile roofing is typically made of either clay or concrete tiles and is made in a wide array of colors and designs. The colors can range from light to dark shades or even be multi-colored. The tiles can match virtually any architectural style. An emulate traditional barrel style is most preferred. Statistically, due to their durability and visual appeal, homes using tiled roofs sell faster. Having tile roofing even increases the value of the home or building as more credits are given on the appraisal.


Tile roofing has a long-term durability. This type roofing has a lower life cycle cost compared to other type roofing materials. This type roofing is rated Class A fire resistance. Other known advantages include the wind resistance levels. This type of roofing is designed to meet high wind speeds of 150 MPH, and could protect you and the home during a tropical storm or hurricane. Tile is also less resistant to hail damage, which could lead to leaks. As mentioned previously, a well-cared for roof of this type can last for over 100 years.
