Why You Should Consider a Tile Roof

Modern Tile Roof

A tile roof isn’t just something you see in old European cities. Today’s modern tile roofs are eco-friendly, durable and may just be the perfect choice for your home.


Sure, tile roofs can call to mind traditional Spanish architecture, but the variety available today offers many more options. Tiles can be created to match your home’s exterior or painted in bold blue or even white to reduce cooling costs. Some clay-tile manufacturers guarantee that the color will last for 50 years, according to the Tile Roofing Institute.


Tile roofs are fireproof and are ranked class A—the highest durability rating for a roof. Certain fire insurance companies will even give discounts to people whose roofs have class-A rankings. And weather is no match for tile roofing. Tiles are designed to withstand wind gusts of up to 150 miles per hour. They’re also hail-resistant, more likely to stay intact during earthquakes, aren’t prone to insect invasion and don’t rot.

Environmental Benefits

Clay and concrete tiles are crafted out of natural materials and contain no chemical preservatives. The longevity of tile roofs and their ability to be recycled means they’re less likely to end up in landfills. Some companies create tiles that have Energy Star-approval, which may mean you end up qualifying for tax credits. You can even add solar panels to tile roofs.

Tiles also allow air to flow underneath them and prevent more heat transfer than other roofing materials. This ventilation can lower your home’s temperatures in the summer and help keep your house warmer during the cooler months—slashing your energy costs.

Existing Home Structure

Since tiles are heavy, you’ll want to check to ensure that your home’s current frame can support their weight. If it can’t, you may have to shell out to reinforce your home before installation.


Although tile tends to be durable, installation costs tend to be higher. The material is also brittle and workers who aren’t careful can break it during installation.

Clay tiles are almost twice as expensive as concrete tiles. But those high prices come with lifecycle benefits: clay tiles are expected to last 100 years, and concrete ones should hold up for about 50 years.
