Clay Tile Roofs

When it comes to selecting the best roofing type for your home, know that terracotta/clay roof tiles have been used for centuries as a roofing material due to their durability and natural beauty. These tiles are made from clay and are fired at high temperatures to produce a hard, dense, and weather-resistant surface that makes them a great choice for a durable and long-lasting roofing material. Sometimes also referred to as ceramic roof tiles, this material is a very popular choice for many homeowners looking to add a touch of elegance and durability to their homes.

As a leading 5-star roofing company, we specialize in the installation and maintenance of all types of tile roofs, and we understand the many benefits that they provide. Some other advantages that are associated with installing this type of clay roofing material include:

  • Durable and Long-Lasting: One of the main features of clay roof tiles is their durability and longevity. This classic style of roofing can last for decades, even centuries, with proper maintenance and care. They can withstand extreme weather conditions, including high winds, heavy rain, and intense heat. Since they don’t rot, they are also resistant to pests. Likewise, since they are non-combustible, they are highly resistant to fire, making them a safe option for homes in areas prone to wildfires.
  • Low Maintenance: A ceramic tile roof is also easy to maintain. For instance, they do not rot or attract pests. They can be cleaned easily with a mild detergent solution and a soft-bristled brush. They are resistant to fading and discoloration, so they will retain their original color for many years. They also do not require regular painting or staining like other roofing materials.
  • Attractive Look: Another advantage of these roofing tiles are their aesthetic appeal. Terracotta tiles come in a variety of colors, styles, and shapes, making it easy to find a style that complements the architecture of your home. They also have a unique texture that adds character and charm to any home.
  • Eco-Friendly: This product is also environmentally friendly, as it is made from natural materials and is recyclable. It also has a low impact on the environment during its production and use.
  • Energy Efficiency: Another advantage of this roofing system is its ability to cool the attic space, this is due to the natural ventilation that occurs through the tile, which can help to reduce energy costs. Additionally, it is available in a variety of colors and styles, making it easy to find a design that complements the overall aesthetic of the home.

Despite the many benefits of clay roof tiles, they also have some disadvantages.

  • One of the main drawbacks is their weight. They are heavier than many other types of roofing materials and may require additional structural support for the roof. This is something to consider when choosing this material for your home, and it is important to consult with a professional roofing contractor like us to ensure that your home’s structure can support the weight of the heavy and dense terracotta tiles.
  • Because their installation is very labor-intensive, they can be more expensive than other types of roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles. However, the long-lasting durability and aesthetic appeal of a clay tile roof make it a worthwhile investment for many homeowners.
  • Another disadvantage is that terracotta tile roofs are brittle and can crack or break easily if they are not handled properly during installation or if they are subjected to heavy impacts. They are also not recommended for areas with heavy snowfall or high winds, as they can be easily damaged. In addition, clay tile roofs require regular maintenance to ensure they last as long as possible. This includes regular cleaning and inspection to ensure they are in good condition.
  • Roof tiles made from ceramic or clay can also be difficult to install. They require a skilled professional who has experience working with this type of material. This can add to the cost of installation, but it also ensures that the tiles are installed properly, which will help to prolong their lifespan.
When it comes to installing a new tile roof, clay can be a great choice for those looking for a long-term roofing solution for your next project, but it is important to work with a professional roofing company like us that has the necessary skills in working with this material and to ensure that your roof is properly installed and maintained.
