Of all the roofing materials on the market, tile roofing proves to be one of the most popular options. Tiles are typically made from concrete or clay and used on the entire roof or for decorative facades. Research shows that concrete or clay tile roofs have incredible longevity, lasting over 50 years in some instances.
One of the benefits of tile roofing is that it can be painted to give your property a fresh look. It is recommended that you hire a professional to handle the painting duties though, as it’s not recommended to walk on tile roofing. Be sure to use a high-quality acrylic paint after your roof has been pressure washed and dried. Concrete and tile roofing materials are also resistant to fire, hail, and moisture.
Tile roofing is commonly utilized on condominiums, townhouses, themed hotels, and resorts. Given its beautiful, rich look, it’s a go-to option. With that said, tile roofing is more expensive to install and replace than other materials. It’s also more difficult to maintain and repair.
