Facts about tile roofing—part I

Did you know that tile roofing is the most popular roofing product in the world? Even if you didn’t, Accent Roofers, one of the best roofers in Austin, TX, knows this fact. They offer the finest in tile roofing because they know its value.

Tile roofs are durable beyond compare. They are designed for long term performance. A tile roof’s modern engineering design gives it the best natural water shedding and ventilation compared to other roof types. Excellent water shedding is important where rain storms are frequent and high quality ventilation is important in warm to hot climates. Tile roofs have a higher weight tolerance and strength that can meet the anticipated loads of today’s design requirements in any climate. While many people think of tile roofs only in warm climates, they are just as good in cold climates where they can reduce ice damming and hold a heavy snow storm’s worth of snow without difficulty. When weather is highly variable tile roofs can be a best choice.

Tile roofs done by Accent Roofers are available in many colors, shapes, and sizes. With modern innovations, concrete and clay roof tile manufacturers are now able to create tiles that fit many different architectural styles. From authentic Spanish or Mediterranean to New England Colonial or historic buildings, tile roofs can be made to match the style. Even contemporary buildings look good with a tile roof, not only certain regional styles. Roof tiles can be flat or round. They can be made to simulate wooden shakes or they can be made to replicate centuries-old roofing materials. It is amazing what can be done with tile roofing.

Tile roofs maintain their color while many other types of roofs will fade easily from sun exposure. Colors in tiles come from the clay used in making clay tiles or from iron oxide pigments in concrete tiles. Both are quite durable. Color softening due to extended exposure to the elements can occur, but it is of a lesser degree than most other roofing materials. Some clay roof tile manufacturers actually guarantee their tiles against fading for 50 years!

The weight of tile is important. It gives the homeowner enduring protection while not developing problems. Most homes built recently are strong enough to support the weight of a tile roof. Light weight tile is also available for use in reroofing older homes.

Tile roofs are easy to maintain and require minimal maintenance. Single tiles are much easier to repair than other types of roofing materials. Because of easy maintenance and their durable long lasting protection, more and more people are choosing tile roofs when reroofing.
