Tile roofs are very common throughout Southwest Florida. Tile roof’s unique design combined with their strength, long lifespan, and overall durability provide some great benefits to all homeowners. Additionally the aesthetic appeal a tile roof provides a home is often unmatched in comparison to other roofing types.
Tile Roof Information
Typically made from concrete or clay, tile roofs provide a unique looking structure that is strong as well as durable. They’re often shaped into a few different styles including curved, flat, fluted, and interlocking. In Florida, tile roofs are a great choice for any home because of how well they hold up in Florida’s harsh weather conditions. Furthermore clay and concrete tile roofs have been known to withstand hail, high winds, impacts from debris, and even fire.
Due to their design, leaks in tile roofs are almost unheard of, and tile roofs are all but impervious to rot and insect damage, meaning you won’t have much maintenance to do as a homeowner. Tile roofs are also incredibly long lasting. Depending on the material they are constructed from, tile roofs can last 50+ years. Finally, tile roofs have been proven to be energy efficient due to the natural flow of air beneath them. In the summer, you may be able to reduce your cooling costs with the installation of a tile roof.
The only downside when constructing roofs with tile are the high cost and the difficult and lengthy duration of installation. Average tile roofs can range anywhere from $675 to $1400 per square foot, and while this is offset by the tile roof’s long lifespan, it’s still a large upfront cost for a roof. Repairs for tile roofs are also quite expensive compared to others, due to the intricacy in which they are installed.
Installing a tile roof requires a professional that knows exactly what they’re doing. Tiles need to be measured, cut, and laid in an exact order, to ensure water and moisture cannot get through the roof. It’s a labor intensive project that requires precision and skill. Another downside to tile roofs are the tile’s weight. With enough force, a tile may crack or break.
