Clay tile is among the most popular materials for roofing options for any southwest home. Whether you are constructing a new house or are preparing to replace an old roof, clay tile is most likely on your list of material options. A tile roof comes with several advantages including durability and resale value.
We have developed this list to help you determine if a tile roof is an option for your home or building.
Durability & Longevity
Tile roofs are incredibly durable, which allows them to last a long time. The weather in Arizona fluctuates from monsoons to extreme heat and sometimes snow. Clay tiles are designed and installed to withstand all of the Arizona weather.
Tile roofs are the longest lasting roofing material. With professional installation and regular maintenance, they can last up to 50 years. Maintenance would include replacing the underlayment, routine cleaning, and general inspection.
Driving around Arizona neighborhoods, it is no secret that tile roofs are the most popular among homeowners. The color and design of tile roofs match the Arizona terrain and landscape. Many homeowners also love the look of tile roofs because they tend to coordinate with the stucco exteriors. Adding to your home’s curb appeal today can also support the sale of your home in the future.
While tile roofs are durable and add curb appeal, they are also extremely heavy. Before considering a tile roof for your Arizona home or business, consulting a professional roofer is highly recommended. They can provide insight as to weather your home’s structure is built to hold a tile roof. Sometimes additional support can be added to the house to support the weight of a tile roof. This will, though, come with an extra cost when switching to a tile roof.
When considering a tile roof for your home, it is important to understand that it is an investment. Tiles can be expensive and depending on the size of your roof, replacement or a new roof installation can be quite costly. The initial cost may be shocking to some homeowners, but understanding that it is an investment in your home’s future can offset the shock of the cost.
