If you need to have a new roof installed on your home, you may be considering installing a tile roof. There are many benefits to tile roofs, compared to asphalt, which is currently the most popular roofing material for residential homes. Here are some of the benefits of tile over asphalt shingles.
Tile Won’t Blow Off When It is Windy
One of the major downsides to asphalt shingles is that they will easily blow off when it is windy out. This is because the glue they are adhered with deteriorates over time. As this happens, the wind can lift the lightweight shingle upward, and blow it off. This is not an issue with tile. Tile is nailed into place, securing it firmly to the sheathing of the roof. And secondly, Tile Roofing in Naples, FL is heavy and strong. This helps ensure wind gusts don’t move the roofing material.
The Sun Doesn’t Damage Tiles
Another of the major downsides to asphalt shingles is that the sun can cause them to shrink or crack. This may not be such a huge deal if you didn’t live in a sunny place. But, when you live in Florida where the sun shines year-round, you need a material that is not damaged by the sun. Tiles do not shrink, crack, bubble or become damaged by the sun, which is ideal for Florida weather.
Tile Gives Your Roof a Unique Look
The last benefit to tile roofing is that it gives your roof a unique look. Tiles are available in a wide array of materials, such as clay and slate, in a wide array of colors, in a variety of textures and in a ton of different shapes and sizes. This allows you to create a unique and distinctive look using the roofing materials you select. The roof is one of the major features of your home. Enhancing it and making it beautiful can help increase the curb appeal of your home or alter the entire look and feel of your home. And that is all made possible with tile roofing.
