Tile roofs have been around for thousands of years and with good reason! As one of the most beautiful and popular roofing options for Arizona homeowners, tile roofs offer incredible protection and style. These are not the only advantages of having a new tile roof installed on your home. 

A tile roof can be made from clay, ceramic, slate, or concrete overlapping tiles that are secured by nails. When properly installed, tile roofs can last upwards of 50 years. The long lifespan isn’t the only advantage of a tile roof. Craven Construction is here today to discuss the top ten advantages of a tile roof for an Arizona home today. 

What are the advantages of a tile roof?

1. Durability

Considered the most durable of all roofing materials, a tile roof can withstand the toughest of weather that Mother Nature throws at it. Tile roofs can be resistant to water, fire, wind, UV rays, insects, and rodents when they are professionally installed. Choosing to install a tile roof comes with the incredible advantage of durability, which is extremely important when preparing for resale. 

2. Longevity

Along with durability comes longevity. Tile roofs have a lifespan of upwards of 50 years. This advantage can be incredibly significant as a new tile roof could likely be the last roof a homeowner needs to install. Tile roofs outlast and outperform almost any other roofing material, which gives them a massive advantage.

3. Fireproof

A tile roof is safer than traditional roofing materials when it comes to being fireproof. A tile roof is specifically designed to allow air to circulate under the tile, which in turn, reduces heat transfer to the attic space during a fire. Clay and concrete tiles have a Class A fire rating and are non-combustible for your safety.

4. Wind Resistant

Tile roofs provide a great line of defense against wind and can help reduce property damage caused by wind. Again, the design of a tile roof will allow for natural ventilation under the tiles that help relieve wind stress. Roofing tiles have been tested and can withstand wind speeds up to 125 mph, higher than that of any other roofing material. 

5. Recyclable

Tiles used for roofing are mineral-based, nontoxic, and can be recycled. This is a large advantage over some other roofing materials, especially asphalt shingles that are commonly found in landfills. If you are interested in an environmentally friendly roofing option, a tile roof is a way to go. 

6. Breathable

Proper ventilation is a large part of a successful roofing system. Luckily, tile roofs are naturally ventilated and this can be a great advantage, especially for living in Arizona. A ventilated and insulated roof allows for a cooler house during the summer and a warmer house in the winter.

7. Low Maintenance

Every roofing material will need maintenance at some point in its life. Luckily, a tile roof will not require too much and if it does, it is much less than any other type of roofing material. With less of a need for maintenance, a tile roof also comes with the advantage of lower long-term costs. 

8. Energy Efficient

Another significant advantage of a new tile roof is that it is energy efficient. Tiles used for roofing are naturally thermal resistant while also providing a thermal barrier. These two qualities reduce heat and UV ray absorption into the roofing material, roof deck, and home. The less heat that is absorbed, the less your HVAC systems need to work to keep the house cool, and in turn, this can lower your utility bills. 

9. Versatile

Modern technologies have given tiles the advantage of being very versatile. Available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, profiles, and sizes, tiles can be created to complement any style of home. Regardless of your taste, you have the advantage of having a tile roof installed on your home. 

10. Solid Investment

There is no denying that a tile roof will cost more than any other roofing material. However, because of their significant advantages, a tile roof is also considered a solid investment. Quality, aesthetics, efficiency, and sustainability are incredibly attractive to homeowners. If you ever consider selling your home, a tile roof is also attractive for buyers.
