Tile roofs are the longest-lasting roofing material, making their life cycle cost the lowest over other products. Required maintenance fills LEED and Energy Star requirements, and they have a significantly higher ability to reduce the transfer of heat up to 70 percent compared to other roofing materials. In fact, natural air ventilation under the tile forms a heat transfer barrier. The result is a warmer house in the winter and a cooler house in the summer. Other features and benefits include:
- Long-term durability
- Wide variety of colors
- Environmentally friendly
- Easy to maintain and repair
- Full range of styles and profiles
- Fire, high-wind, seismic, and hail resistant
There are many different styles of tile roofs to create unique and interesting rooftops, such as flat, Roman, S-shaped, and vertical. Tile roofs are easy to install when utilizing the services of a professional roofing contractor in Clearwater and Carrollwood.
