How Long Do Tile Roofs Last?
Tile roofs have been a top roofing choice for centuries. They are extremely durable and can withstand extreme climate conditions. However, how long do they actually last?
Clay tile roofs are a popular choice for roofing. They tend to run on the more expensive side, but the money spent is well worth it. One question that is imperative to ask when determining the life of a roof is how well will it hold its color? After all, nobody wants to have an old, worn out roof that is faded and looks shoddy. Well, since clay tiles are crafted from natural sources, they hold their color extremely well. This can mean protection against color fading for up to 50 years in some cases.
Clay tiles are also extremely durable. They perform well in the summer due to the natural ventilation they create. They are also heavier than other roofing materials, but this adds to their strength, which helps protect your roof from hail and other extreme weather conditions. This weight and strength also help the roof last a long time. They can last for more than 50 years, with very little maintenance required. It is no surprise why clay tile roofs are such a popular choice.
