The Top 4 Advantages of a Tile Roof

tile roofing benefits

Throughout the Fort Lauderdale region of Florida, tile roofing is practically a part of the landscape.  It gives a unique and identifiable look to residential and commercial buildings.  Although tile roofs are initially more costly to install than asphalt shingle, metal or wood shake roofs, but also last much longer and provide a number of distinct advantages. Let’s take a look.

Tile Roof Advantages

1. Long lifespan

While the cost of tile runs higher than asphalt shingles or wood shakes, it lasts two to three times longer: 50 to 70 years or more! This incredibly extended lifespan saves the cost of material and labor several times over.

2. Versatility

Roofing tiles come in a wide array of styles and colors, ranging from bright Spanish red to rustic grey slate. A1 Property Services can assist you in choosing the color that will best accent your home’s architectural theme.

3. Colorfastness

Concrete and clay roof tiles feature color pigmentation that extends throughout the material, finished with a dense color glaze. While clay tiles tend to hold their color better than concrete, both materials offer significant curb appeal over other roofing materials.

4. Energy Efficiency

The eco-friendly composition and value of tile roofing cuts down on the amount of direct heat transfer permitted into home.  When combined with proper attic ventilation, a tile roof can help to greatly reduce air conditioning requirements during summer’s heat.

A tile roof adds both beauty and value to a home in the Florida area.  For more information about the benefits of this great roofing type and whether it is right for your home, contact A1 Property Services. We service the roofing needs of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and the surrounding area.
