Choosing the ideal roofing materials and top-quality roof tiles is not something that you will need to do too regularly. It’s a given that at some point you will need to repair or replace your roof. In some instances, you might be building a new home or commercial building, and then you will have some roofing decisions and choices to make too. It’s important to know which products are best suited, so that you get the best possible return on your investment.
You will find a wide variety of roofing materials available on the market, and each has its own features and characteristics. With so many options available, you can make your roofing decisions based on budget, durability and style/aesthetics. Keep in mind that opting for lower quality roof tiles will simply mean a shorter lifespan for your roof. Investing in top-quality roofing materials will mean longevity, and the fact that your roof can last in excess of 25 years.
When planning the installation of your new roof, there is a lot to be taken into consideration over and above choosing the type of tiles you will use. These factors include the likes of sheathing, underlays, flashing and various leak-proofing methods. It’s also important to consider proper ventilation and insulation.
A well-planned roof that’s constructed of top-quality materials will protect everything beneath it, and it will be able to do so for many years to come. It will also be made from economical and sustainable materials. The first step to making a decision is knowing what’s available. While there are many products available on the market, there are those that have stood the test of time. These are concrete and clay tiles which have been used for centuries.
Clay- and concrete-based tiles are known for their durability and longevity. While these are top-quality roof tiles, they are also quite heavy, so it’s important to know that the underlying roof frame/structure will be able to carry the load. That’s the first step when considering clay- or concrete-based tiles. Once you have the right type of structure, it’s time to start selecting the type or style of tile that will best suit the structure. You will find that both clay and concrete tiles are available in many styles, and some are even designed with finishes that look like other types of roof coverings. Tiling your roof will not be the cheapest option right away, but in the long run, it certainly will be. These tiles last longer, and are fireproof and weather proof too. Unlike other inferior quality roofing products, these tiles will last a long time. They’re the epitome of value for money.
There are many pros to choosing clay and concrete tiles for your building. While they are durable and long lasting, there is so much more to these tiles too. They are also relatively maintenance free, and because of their design, you will have many architectural styles to choose from. When it comes to energy efficiency, these tiles are highly rated, as they reflect the sun effectively. You will also find that when choosing top-quality roof tiles made from concrete and clay, you will benefit from good insulation, as a result of the gap of air between the tile and the roof decking.
