4 Benefits of Switching to Tile Roofing

4 Benefits of Switching to Tile Roofing

Reroofing with clay or concrete tiles is an excellent investment. For many reasons, you couldn’t go wrong with either of the two materials. If you ask Krech Exteriors, here are the best benefits of covering your home with tiles:

1. Impressive Toughness

Any experienced roofing contractor would say that clay and concrete tiles are immune to any force of nature. When installed and maintained properly, they would stand up well to high winds and sizable hailstones. When fastened according to their requirements, tiles deliver exceptional seismic resistance, which allow them to withstand earthquakes. Most importantly, they’re proof against fire; as a product and a system, they have a Class A fire rating. No wonder many centuries-old tile roofs have remained intact until today.

2. Minimal Maintenance

Thanks to their incredible durability, tiles don’t develop damage easily. But even if they do, they’re quite easy to repair since they’re individually installed. Of course, you need to hire a contractor with specialist knowledge about tile roofing to ensure quality work.

3. Natural Energy Efficiency

In more ways than one, tiles can keep your heating and cooling costs low in the winter and summer, respectively, year after year. According to independent testing done at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, tiles have delivered better reflectivity than most popular roofing materials. They don’t absorb as much heat and reduce thermal transfer by up to 70%. Plus, they allow natural airflow under each individual piece. The ventilation creates a heat transfer barrier to help insulate interior spaces.

4. Old-World Beauty

Although many economical alternatives exist to emulate the look of tiles, nothing can still beat the original. Authentic clay or concrete tiles can give your home an upscale appearance, lending it head-turning curb appeal. They’re available in a variety of colors, profiles, and styles to match the aesthetic of practically any architecture, including those that don’t traditionally use tiles.
