Compared to other roofing types, tile roofing is extremely durable, handling higher forces without cracking, puncturing, or damaging. Especially living in South Florida, tile roofing can withstand higher wind speeds during hurricane season. Because of its durability, tile roofing has a significant lifespan, protecting your home for years to come. The main reason for its rise in popularity, tile roofs feature an aesthetic that cannot be achieved by other roofing materials. Tile is a timeless material that not only looks good on its own but can add a layer of elegance to your home.
Furthermore, since the tiles are individually installed, the airspace around them creates natural ventilation that provides a thermal barrier from heat transfer to the roof deck. This ventilation helps save you money on your energy bill. The tiles also don’t require chemical preservatives and can be recycled, so tile roofing not only saves you money, but it is environmentally friendly!
Tile roofing also is impervious to rotting or insect damage. Compared to other roofing materials, tile roofing will not decay. This advantage helps homebuyers have greater peace of mind by not worrying about costs that result over time living in South Florida’s hot climate. Another benefit to tile roofing is that it is low maintenance! Because of its strength, homeowners aren’t always forced to go and try and perform DIY roof repairs or have to hire a tile roof repairer. Finally, choosing tile roofing provides homeowners with numerous choices of tile material, including clay, concrete, or slate tiles. Then you can choose various colors and styles to match your home or appear to look like traditional shingles or wood.
