When it comes to residential roofing choices, there are many options to choose from, one of the best roofing materials on the market is clay roof tile. The three main reasons why clay roof tiles are a fantastic option when it comes to choosing a roof for your home are that they are impervious to insect infestation, long-lasting, and generally weatherproof.
1. Clay Roof Tile is Impervious to Insect Infestation
If you shrugged your shoulder and said “meh” when you heard insect proof as the first accolade of a roof, then it’s pretty clear you’ve never owned a roof that had a termite problem. In North America, termites cause an estimated five billion dollars in damages per year. Having a roof that is not susceptible to the scourge of an insect infestation is a pretty big deal.
2. Clay Roof Tile Last a Very Long Time
It is common for a clay tile roof to last from fifty to one hundred years, there are clay tile roofs in working order today that are even older than that! The beauty of a roof that will last for so long is the cost savings involved in not having to worry about replacing the roof for your entire life. Not to mention the bragging rights of telling your friends that you live the clay roof tile worry-free life, find joy in the little things in your life people!
3. Clay Tile Roof is Weatherproof
I said that clay tile roofs are generally weatherproof because even a clay roof is not going to be able to stand up to a catastrophic hurricane or a tornado! That being said, clay roof tile will be able to withstand the various types of punches mother nature will throw. As the weather cools down, the clay tiles will shrink accordingly, and as the weather heats up, they will expand without issue.
