These advantages are why our roof installers perform so many tile roof installations. From practical and common-sense applications to pure aesthetics, tile is a material well-suited to homes throughout the region due to its durability and unique look. If you need a new roof, it might be time to look beyond ordinary materials and consider tile.
The Benefits of Tiled Roofs on Houses
Tiled roofs offer a wealth of benefits, some of which are unique and separate tile from its counterparts. These qualities are why SRD Roofing’s customers elect to install the material over others. While they’re most commonly used in areas experiencing hot water or exposure to sea air, there’s no reason Ogden and Brigham City, UT clients shouldn’t consider tile for their roof because they:
Last a long time:
A tile roof can last up to 100 years under the right circumstances, and many manufacturers include a 50-year warranty along with the tiles. Clay and concrete tiles stand up well to the elements, including hot, high winds, and even fire. They’ll stand up to the brutal winter conditions in Utah as well.
They’re impervious to rot:
Unlike wood tiles and other roofing materials, tiled roofs do not suffer from rot or damage from burrowing insects, making tile a valuable choice over many of the alternatives available to homeowners. Plus, tile doesn’t decay on its own.
Tile is environmentally-friendly:
Tile isn’t crafted from synthetic or chemical components. Instead, it is made from easily pulverized and recycled natural materials. Because they’re made from earth-bound minerals, homeowners can feel at ease in the knowledge they’re reducing their carbon footprint and contributing to sustainability.
It is an energy-efficient material:
Tile roofs offer extremely high thermal capabilities, which means they trap air in your home quite well. Homeowners should be seeking superior insulation, and a high-quality tile roof is a perfect way to get this done. Doing so results in lower energy bills.
Tile roofs are low maintenance:
It is very rare for tile roofs to leak and quite uncommon for the individual tiles to break (unless struck with overwhelming force). As a result, homeowners have little to worry about when it comes to maintenance or repair tasks.
They offer varied choices:
Clay, concrete, and slate are all possibilities. Each offers its benefits, both practically and aesthetically-speaking. You can accomplish a variety of design styles by utilizing the natural beauty of each style, including medieval, contemporary, and European.
The Structural Requirements for a Concrete or Clay Tile Roof
Tiles are much more substantial and bulkier than asphalt. As a result, some stipulations govern whether tiles are the right choice for your roof. When we visit your property for an assessment, we’ll carefully examine your roof to determine whether the roof can handle the weight the tiles will place on it, as well as other key factors, such as:
- Tile roofs require a slope of at least 4 to 12 inches.
- The tiles need to be cut to fit around flashings, chimneys, and other obstructions, requiring the labor of a professional.
- Tile is a permanent roofing system, and as a result, what lies underneath must be equally stable.
- If the underlying surface is compromised or lacks structural integrity, it will need to be ripped up and reestablished to provide a solid base for the tiles.
- The underlayment must be waterproof for the tiles to be effective.
- We must take the structural makeup of your home into account because concrete tile is 600 to 1,200 pounds per square, and clay tile is 1,000 to 1,500 pounds per square foot.
- If the home is not capable of handling the load, an SRD Roofing professional might recommend reinforcing technology.
