Tile Roof on a Home and
BusinessOnce limited mostly to the
southwest United States, tile roofing is now becoming more popular in other parts of the country
for its many benefits over asphalt shingles. From the tile underlayment to tile roof leak
prevention to the roof tile enjoying a far greater lifespan, more people are looking at tile
roofing as a permanent solution for their homes.
The distinctive appearance of tile roofing is certainly one of the main attractions. Colorful and
beautifully enhancing the appearance of the home, tile roofing can certainly bring out the best in
your home’s appearance. However, there are two considerations about roof tile that have held people
back in the past, the initial installation cost and the weight of the tiles themselves that have
previously led to reinforcing the roof in order to handle the additional weight.
Today however, tiles
come in much lighter weights that do not require additional reinforcement of the roof, meaning
that this is no longer a cost consideration for those who are considering using roof tile on
their homes. As for the initial installation cost itself, there are other positive
considerations to make before making your decision based entirely on your out of pocket expense.

it traps more heat in the winter and keeps the cool in the summer. This means saving money
on your electric bill no matter what part of the country that you are in.

have the ability to carry adaptations for cloaked attic vents, hip starters, apexes, bird stops
and many other features that make them perfect for adapting to what you want. The very nature of
tile means that you can select from dozens of adaptations to make your home look more unique and
The high quality and
durability of roof tile makes it the perfect choice for those who want to only have to install a
roof once and enjoy it for a lifetime. From preventing tile roof leak which can damage the
interior of your home to being fireproof to being far more resistant to what Mother Nature can
throw at it, no wonder more people are selecting tile roofing.
