Are tile roofs worth it?
Do you have a tile roof or are you considering a tile roof? If so there are several things you should know.
Tile roofs are a great option for those looking for a long-term roofing option that is also environmentally friendly. Tile roofs can last for 100+ years. If sections get damaged you can do repairs with reclaimed tiles. Tiles are made of natural minerals instead of harsh chemicals that negatively impact the earth. Yet, unlike other natural materials, tile roofs are impervious to rot and insect damage. Tile roofs also are great at regulating and maintaining the temperature of your home which can save on energy usage and costs. All of these things make tile roofs a great low maintenance option.
However, tiles also have a downside. They are heavy and require a sturdy structure capable of supporting their weight. Tiles also have a steeper price tag than alternative roofing options. Tiles can also be easily damaged when hit with items like tree limbs or even when walked on.
