Clay tiles have been used for roof applications for homes and other structures for thousands of years.
They work well with different types of homes, including homes with a Mediterranean or Spanish design style to offer a rustic touch. But it isn’t just the design that has us here at Mark Kaufman Roofing crushing on them. If you are considering replacing your roof or even if you aren’t, here is why we think you should consider a clay tile roof for your North Port, FL area home.
Clay Tiles Last Longer
There’s no coincidence that thousands of years old clay products are routinely found almost intact at archeological digs. They last so long that they are can often be found atop churches throughout Europe and the United States, today. Clay roof shingles can last for decades, and often come with long warranties. These shingles are extremely durable and ideal for homes in the Florida area.
Having clay roof shingles installed on your home can actually increase its value. Not just because of their curb appeal, but also because of their fire resistance. They also make your home more energy-efficient because they insulate your home while allowing air to circulate underneath. Clay tiles help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
We also recommend clay shingles because they:
- Stand up to extreme weather, including hail, heavy rain, and strong winds
- Won’t rot like asphalt shingles can do over time
- Resist insect damage
- Are very low-maintenance
Reliability That Gives You Peace of Mind
If you are a snowbird, or only use your home for vacations, having a clay roof can give you peace of mind when you are away from it. Because they are so durable, the likelihood of you coming home after months away to water damage from a roof leak is greatly reduced. You no longer have to worry about having someone check your home regularly for roof leaks while you are away from it.
Worth the Expense
Clay roof shingles are available in more styles and colors to make your roof a work of art. While you might pay a little more up front for your roof, it could possibly be the last roof you ever buy.
