The replacement of your roof can be one of the most important home projects you’ll ever undertake. There are many things to consider and you should take some time deciding on your options, as long as there aren’t leaks that require immediate attention. Many homeowners that have an asphalt roof assume that’s what replacement material they have to use. That’s not necessarily true and a new tile roof may better suit your needs.
One of the advantages of tile roofing is that each tile is individually installed, which can make a minor repair on your roof very simple. It can be much less complicated than diagnosing a leak in overlapping asphalt shingles. A tile roof has a natural barrier of air between the tiles and the roof decking that reduces heat gain in the summer and insulates your home in the winter. In addition, they’re made of heat resistant materials that combine with the air barrier to reduce as much as 70% of heat gain compared to asphalt shingles. And they last much longer; some tile roofs are functional for 100 years or more.
Other Benefits of a Tile Roof
In addition to energy efficiency, roof tiles are made of materials that are environmentally friendly. They won’t be taking up space in a landfill as they’re made with recyclable materials and outlast other roofing options that do end up in landfills. There are no chemicals added to them to increase fire resistance, because they’re naturally extremely fire resistant.
Tile roofing is available in many different colors and styles and can increase the curb appeal of your home if you’re thinking of putting it on the market. Enjoy a reduced energy bill, a home with an increased value and a likelihood that you’ll never have to replace your roof again.
