6 Benefits of Clay Tile Roofing

Clay roof tiling can provide homeowners with a durable and aesthetically pleasant exterior. Some clay roofs can last for a century, and many require only a minimal amount of maintenance. That makes clay a viable option compared to similar materials like terra cotta, fired clay, molded concrete or slate.

 

Clay tile roofs have many attractive characteristics and properties including:

1. Longevity

Clay roof tiles have a longer lifespan than many other materials. These roofs can have a service life as long as a hundred years.

2. Low Maintenance

Compared to other roofing materials, clay tiles require less maintenance, which can lower the total cost of ownership.

3. Durability

Clay tiles do not rot and they're fire and insect-resistant.

4. Insulation

Air freely circulates beneath these tiles, which regulates rooftop temperatures, helping maintain temperatures inside the home.

5. Weather resistance

Other materials expand and contract to a greater degree when extreme conditions occur. In contrast, clay maintains the roof's integrity by withstanding the most extreme hot and cold weather events. They are also able to resist the harmful ultra-violet radiation from the sun.

6. Aesthetics

The style for clay tile roofs is inspired by Spanish and Mediterranean designs. This appearance complements a variety of sidings. For example, a clay tile roof can enhance the look of brick or stone sidings, making it compatible with the most trending design styles for homes.
