The Beauty of Clay Tile Roofing for Your Home


The Beauty of Clay Tile Roofing for Your Home

Clay tiles for roofing have been around in America since the 17th century. This is when major fires in Boston and New York prompted the creation of fire codes that encouraged fireproof roofing. Once European settlers began bringing clay tiles over in response to these bylaws, the trend of clay tile roofing really stuck.

Their easy maintenance, low thermal conductivity, and durability sealed the deal, and they became the most popular roofing material for almost two centuries. Moreover, clay tiles have one of the longest estimated lifespans of any roofing material, with some clay roofs lasting more than 100 years. Today, clay tile roofing remains a popular aesthetic style, especially in California and Florida.

Clay tile roofing can add to your home’s resale value significantly

It will come at a cost about two or three times that of asphalt shingles, so it is a big investment. However, buyers will know that there will be very little maintenance involved with a clay tile roof, and that replacement will be unlikely.

A notable consideration with clay tile roofing is that your home’s construction must be strong enough to bear its weight, up to 850 pounds per square foot. If reconstruction is out of the question, however, you can opt for concrete or imitation clay tiles.

Simply put, clay tile roofing is a beautiful choice. When properly installed, including quality flashing and underlayment, you won’t have to replace it in your lifetime, and maintenance will be almost non-existent. And best of all, you’ll be extremely happy you have a clay roof when those high winds start to pick up during a severe weather event.


Is Clay Tile Roofing Energy Efficient?

Clay tile roofs are extremely energy efficient due to certain characteristics working together to reduce heat gain in your attic. These include airflow, thermal mass, thermal emittance, and solar reflectance. This will keep your home warm during the winter and cool during our long, hot Texas summers. In addition, clay tiles are made from natural materials with no harmful chemicals.
