Spanish tile is now made from a variety of materials.
The traditional materials used in the production of Spanish tile are terracotta and clay. Today, there are even more options to choose from. Ceramic and concrete are becoming very popular choices for South Florida homeowners. There are also rolled metal options that improve durability like sheet metal and the ever-popular copper.
Terracotta and clay Spanish tiles are that traditional red-hued roof you see on most homes. These tiles were first used by California Spanish missionaries in the 1700s. They have only grown in popularity, gracing everything from government buildings to estate properties to residences all over the country.
Ceramic and concrete tiles allow for more customization to your roof.
This material can be dyed in a variety of color choices. You can go with the traditional bright red or vibrant orange or opt for goldenrod yellow or sage green tile. These options make it so you can customize the look and feel of your home.
There is also the option to go “outside the box” and choose sheet metal or copper for your Spanish tile. These materials are rolled into that classic curved shape to replicate the appeal of Spanish tile. The added benefit is strength and durability. And if you go with copper, the patina that grows over time will add a sense of sophistication and style to your home.
Spanish tile is simple in design and function.
The intent for the curved shape in Spanish tile is not only aesthetic but functional. When installed on your home, the shape of the tiles creates channels that encourage water to flow down into your gutter.
Spanish tiles are perfect for climates that experience torrential downpours. It’s as if they were made just for South Florida tropical weather!
The average life span of these tiles is over 50 years. Making it a clear choice for a long-term solution for any roof structure.
Tile is one of the most durable roofing materials you can have installed on your home. Spanish tile will not rot, and it is fire-resistant. It is impervious to rodents and pests as well. They are perfect for insulating your home and keeping the summer heat off, saving you on your electric bill.
