Tile is one of the most popular roofing materials in the industry. Apart from its distinctive beauty, a tile roof offers excellent benefits that other materials can’t beat. So if you’re planning to invest in a new roof, Sterling Exteriors highly recommends considering tile.
In today’s post, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions about tile roofs:
What Can I Expect in Terms of Performance?
Both clay and concrete tile roofs are extremely durable. With proper installation, they can last up to 50 years or even longer. They work well in any climate as they can resist the harshest conditions, including wildfires, strong winds and hailstorms. That’s why most manufacturers back them with warranties of at least 50 years.
What Are the Maintenance Requirements
Under typical conditions, tile roofing only needs minimal upkeep. Its maintenance is mostly restricted to gutters, venting and protrusion flashings. Other roofing systems require coating, cleaning and sealing—things you don’t have to worry about with a tile roof. With tile’s low life-cycle cost, you can save a lot of time, money and even worry in the long run.
How Long Will Its Color Last?
This depends on the type of tile and the method of coloring. Colors created by adding pigment will last indefinitely. Take note, however, that tiles may experience varying degrees of color softening due to constant exposure to the elements. Nevertheless, they retain their timeless beauty better than most roofing materials. Most roofing manufacturers guarantee their tile roofs against fading for 50 years.
