What Is Clay Tile Roofing?

Clay tile comes in a variety of colors, grains, and thicknesses and provides a stunning addition for homes or businesses in a variety of styles. Natural clay tile has an exceptionally long lifespan,  outliving many other roofing materials and sometimes even the structure itself. Clay is also fire and pest resistant and requires little maintenance. However these tiles are fragile, so walking on them for maintenance checks can be a challenge.

Clay tiles are also resistant to elements and harmful UV rays. Clay tiles are composed of natural materials, making them 100% recyclable when removed and can be used for other projects.

Benefits Of Clay Tile Roofing:

  • Longevity – commonly lasting 75-100 years

  • Aesthetically pleasing, adding warmth to any structure

  • Fire and pest resistant

  • Stands up well to severe weather conditions

  • Great ventilation and insulation properties, keeping energy costs down

  • Reflectivity

  • Minimal maintenance required

  • Environmentally friendly

Drawbacks Of Clay Tile Roofing

A downside to clay tile is the fact that it is extremely heavy. So heavy in fact that additional roof support may be required to be able to handle the weight. More expensive than other roofing tile options, clay roof tiles are extremely fragile and installation can be more complicated. It is also important to note that maintenance for clay tiles is extremely low, but more challenging due to clay tile fragility – making painting and gutter clearing more difficult.
