Although tile roofing is a bigger investment than some other roofing types, there are many reasons you should consider a tile roof replacement for your home. As a company who specializes in clay and concrete tile roofing we see the benefits homeowners gain from tile roofs regularly. If you are looking for a reason to choose tile over another roofing material, here are five great ones.
Tile roofing is naturally insulative. There are two reasons, the material itself and the lighter colors. Although not all tile is lighter in color than all asphalt, for the most part the lighter colors of tile roofing reflects more of the sun’s light helping to keep your home cooler. The fact that both clay and concrete tile roofing are excellent insulators can reduce both your heating and cooling costs. Reduced heating and cooling translate into lower utility bills and energy efficiency. And that insulative property also helps with sound if you’re around the airport, you may find your home is quieter!
When your new tile roofing is installed by a professional tile roofer, you will have one of the strongest roofs available. Current installation methods help tile hold up to winds up to 130mph. It can stand up not only to wind but hail, tree branches, and other flying debris. A stronger roof means better protection the next time a major storm comes through Orlando.
When compared to asphalt shingles, tile roofing generally lasts twice as long. Not only will you not need to think about a roof replacement for decades but you’ll have less general maintenance. When you don’t want to replace your roof again, consider tile roofing.

We all want to take pride in the way our home looks and few roofing materials look better than tile. It looks great the day it’s installed and for decades to come. Tile’s vibrant colors and unique designs make it one of the easiest ways to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Because tile is made from natural and sustainable materials, it is the most environmentally friendly roofing materials. Additionally, it can be recycled at the end of its useful life so it doesn’t end up in a landfill like some other products. Because homeowners use less electricity, your carbon footprint with tile is less than asphalt.
