FAQs About Tile Roofs

Buying a new roof can be a stressful endeavor; nobody feels comfortable spending that amount of money without putting a lot of time into research. Any customer in the market should talk extensively with their roofer before any purchase. However, it can help to get some information before hand. So, we’ve presented a few FAQs about tile roofs:

Don’t they cost a lot?

While they do cost, usually, about twice as much as wood shakes, they also have a much longer life-span. Because of this, the overall cost comes out the same or less than other roof types.

How long do they last?

They last a long time; they’ve been discovered in neolithic China, and many ancient buildings with them still remain today. A properly installed tile roof will often last longer than the building it got put on, if properly kept up.

Do they come in other color options besides red/orange?

Yes. Modern production procedures now allow us to create a wide variety of tile roof colors. Whether you want earthy or vibrant tones, they will be available to you.
