Roofing Options Series: Why Choose Tile Roofs?

If you are looking for a durable and environment-friendly roofing system, tile roof might be the ideal choice. This type is known for its long life span the lack of chemical preservatives during production. There are two types of tile roofs: clay tile and concrete tile. Both have the same benefits, but are produced in different ways.

Here’s Tugwell Roofing to discuss what tile roofing is all about.

Clay Vs. Concrete
Clay tiles are made of baked molded clay heated under high temperatures. These are popular for having a long lasting color and strength. Concrete tiles, on the other hand, are produced by mixing water, cement, and sand. These are also molded under high temperatures. What make them unique are the interlocking ribs that protect the roof from water infiltration.
