Clay tile roofing is one of the oldest and most used types of roofing in the world. If you want your house to stand out, a clay tile roof is the perfect for you. This is a beautiful roof option that should give you a lifetime of beauty & performance.
Clay tiles are produced by baking molded clay into concave shapes that lock together. The strength and density of the clay is determined by the type of clay, as well as the length of time and temperature at which it is heated. Tiles may be glazed and also may have surface texture treatments applied. As a result, there are a wide variety of tile profiles, styles, finishes and colors available. In addition, there may be separate accessory tiles—matched to each field tile design—of various shapes designed for use on ridges, hips, hip intersections and gable ends.
One of the advantages of clay tile is the ability of clay to insulate, keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer. This combined with a natural ability to reflect heat from the sun, clay tiles can reduce the energy required to maintain comfortable temperatures in your home.
The durability of clay tiles is an important factor to consider. In addition to their long lifespan, clay tile roofs require little maintenance. Clay roof tiles are fireproof, as well as free from rot, mold, and water damage that can destroy other roofing materials. They are insect-proof and can be resistant to damage from freezing and thawing.
