Types of Tile Roofing
Tile roofing comes in a variety of styles, types, finishes, and colors.
At Delta Built Services, Inc., we offer many types of tile roofing in the San Fernando Valley, including:
- Clay: Chances are that if you live in Southern California, you’ve seen a building with clay tile roofing. The most common type is the Spanish, or traditional S, style; however, it can be made in other patterns as well. The installation method depends on whether the tile being installed is one piece, two-piece, interlocking, or flat.
- Metal: While you may be thinking that a metal roof gives your property too much of an industrial feel, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Metal tiles can be preformed to look like any other type of roofing, but with the added benefits and durability that metal gives them as opposed to clay, slate, or concrete. They come in a variety of colors and textures to help make your property stand out from the rest.
- Concrete: If you like the appearance of ceramic or slate tiles, but you want something that offers more durability, concrete tiles may be a great option for you. Although heavier than some of the other materials, they do allow for customization and tend to be much sturdier.
The Benefits of Tile Roofing
In addition to the variety and customization capabilities of tile roofing, there are many other benefits.
- It is long lasting: Because many of the types of tile roofing are weather (wind and heat) and fire resistant, it makes them extremely long lasting. In fact, most tile roofs have lifespans of more than 100 years.
- It is insect and rot resistant: If you’re worried about your roofing materials decaying or rotting, tile roofing is a great option for you. Not only is it less prone to decay, but it is also resistant to many destructive pests.
- It is energy efficient: Tile roofing is able to adjust indoor temperatures due to its superior thermal capacity, meaning you won’t have to spend as much to keep your property comfortable. A most common benefit in colder climates - looking at you Big Bear.
- It is safe for the environment: Because many tile roofs are made from natural materials, they are able to be recycled, which is better for the environment.
- It is low maintenance: Because they don’t often experience leaks, tile roofs don’t need much work or maintenance unless a rupture was caused by a massive impact.
Important Things to Take into Consideration When It Comes to Tile Roofing
While tile roofing is advertised as being waterproof, this isn’t entirely accurate. Tile roofing is simply the decorative layering. The real waterproof quality comes from the underlayment or felt paper that is installed underneath. Unfortunately, this material will disintegrate over time, especially in the warm San Fernando Valley heat. This means that within around 12 to 20 years, you will need to have it removed and replaced.
It’s also important to take the weight of the tile material you select into consideration. Certain materials, such as ceramic or concrete, are heavier and thus they will need to have appropriate structures and framing to handle the associated weight. Fortunately, more and more lightweight tiles are being manufactured to offer more variety and customization options.
