Replacing the roof on your home is a daunting task, so it’s understandable that getting a new roof installed is a process you don’t want to go through, repeatedly over your lifetime of home ownership.
To ensure that your next roof replacement brings you the greatest possible long-term benefits, it’s vital to pick a material and roofing company with care.
Here are three excellent reasons to choose a tile roof and have it installed by a reputable, licensed and insured local roofer:
If you want to avoid the time investment of replacing your home’s roof every 15 or 20 years, a skillfully-installed tile roof is a smart choice thanks to its exceptional longevity. When you hire a knowledgeable roofing company that understands proper installation best practices and stands behind their workmanship, your tile roof will need minimal maintenance and can easily last for 50–100 years. There is a good chance you’ll never have to replace again.
A tile roof not only offers a timeless aesthetic that blends in beautifully with our Sun Coast architecture, but its exceptional durability makes it ideally suited to withstand the weather extremes we often experience with our coastal climate. A tile roof is fire-proof and virtually impervious to insects, algae and mold/mildew. Tile roofing also resists moisture absorption and corrosion or other damage from salt air, and thanks to its weight and impact resistance, it stands up well to wind, heavy rain and hail.
Superb Long-Term Value
When you’re facing a major expense like a roof replacement, it’s essential to weigh the potential return on investment for different options. If you just look at the upfront cost of materials and installation, you’ll immediately notice that a tile roof is more expensive than some other materials, like asphalt shingles.
For a more accurate comparison, though, you also need to consider the future savings that having a tile roof can bring you on repairs, maintenance and replacements. There’s also the potential for long-term savings on your cooling costs because a properly-installed tile roof is a superb insulation, so it can help curb your household energy consumption. A quality tile roof adds value to your home, as well, and can make it more attractive to potential buyers when you decide to sell.
