Tile roofs have been a popular choice for homeowners in Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, and Tacoma. They offer an aesthetic appeal, and durability, and are energy efficient. However, many homeowners may not know much about tile roofs. Here are eight things every homeowner should know about tile roofs.

Tile roofs are durable.

Tile roofs are known for their durability and longevity. They can last up to 100 years with proper installation and maintenance. They are made of materials such as clay, concrete, and slate, which can withstand extreme weather conditions such as high winds, heavy rain, and even wildfires.

Tile roofs are energy efficient.

Tile roofs are excellent at reflecting heat, which makes them energy efficient. They can help reduce your home's cooling costs by keeping your home cooler during the summer months. This means you won't need to rely on your air conditioning as much, saving you money on your energy bills.

Tile roofs require regular maintenance.

While tile roofs are durable, they still require regular maintenance to ensure their longevity. Regular maintenance includes cleaning the tiles, checking for cracks or damage, and replacing any broken or missing tiles. Failure to maintain your tile roof could lead to leaks, which can cause significant damage to your home.

Tile roofs are heavy.

Tile roofs are heavier than other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles or metal roofs. This means that your home's structure must be able to support the weight of the tiles. If you are considering a tile roof, it is essential to have a professional assess your home's structure to ensure it can support the weight of the tiles.

Tile roofs can be expensive.

Tile roofs are more expensive than other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles or metal roofs. However, the longevity and durability of tile roofs make them a worthwhile investment in the long run. Additionally, they can add value to your home, making them an attractive option for homeowners who are looking to sell their homes in the future.

Tile roofs come in various styles and colors.

Tile roofs come in a variety of styles and colors, allowing you to choose a style that complements your home's architecture and color scheme. This makes it easy to find a tile roof that fits your home's design aesthetic.

Tile roofs are fire-resistant.

Tile roofs are fire-resistant, making them an excellent option for homeowners who live in areas prone to wildfires. Tile roofs can help protect your home from the spread of fire, which can save your home and belongings in the event of a fire.

Tile roofs can be repaired.

If you notice damage to your tile roof, it is essential to have it repaired as soon as possible. Tile roofs can be repaired, and it is often more cost-effective to repair them than to replace the entire roof. Additionally, repairing your tile roof can extend its lifespan, saving you money in the long run.
