An Appleton tile roof is not something you see a lot of these days but has gained popularity over the years and for good reasons. A lot of times you see tile roofing in warm climates or on very wealthy people’s homes but today anyone can have them and not break the bank in the process. Here are some pros and cons to an Appleton tile roof.
- Tile is very resistant to any weather conditions, here in Appleton we experience very hot summers, freezing winters, and the occasional thunderstorms and tornadoes. These can be stressful on normal shingle roofs but with tile, it’s not always the case. They can withstand high winds, hail, and even fire making them great for a variety of weather.
- Tile roofs can last for a very long time upwards or even over 50 years. Due to their strong characteristics, these can keep them looking great throughout those long years.
- Tile roofs can be customized in many different ways, from shape and size to color and material. This will allow you to get exactly how you want your roof to look.
- Tile roofs also require very little maintenance due to how durable and resistant they are.
- Tile roofs are beneficial to the environment because they are made out of clay or concrete as opposed to the traditional asphalt shingles.
- Due to their durability and material your Appleton tile roof may need more structural reinforcement to withstand the weight. This can raise the price of installation.
- A tile roof is more expensive than its rival asphalt shingle due to the weight of the material, the skill required for installation, and material cost. While it’s been on the fall in recent years it is still something to consider throughout your entire life at that home.
- Skilled installation is required due to how the tiles have to be laid and not too much pressure can be applied to them at that time.
