Redesigning with Roofing Tiles for Shallow Roofs

In fact; with the right type of roofing tile, shallow roofs can be made stronger and look better than before.

There is a near-unlimited array of roofing tiles made available for today’s roofing market, and most of these are specifically designed from more conventional roofing materials. Outside of these standard roofing tiles there are specialty roofing tiles for shallow roofs; made from clay, ceramic, or cut stone, these tiles are especially designed to correct the problematic aspects of shallow roofing in climates which are ill-suited to roofing of such nature, and to provide more aesthetic options for homeowners and builders.

Most tiles for shallow roofs generally possess a more curved or rounded feature in contrast to other roofing tiles that flaunt flat or otherwise wavy surfaces, such as shingles. Curved and rounded tiles allow for water to flow down easily unto a drainage pipe and off of the roof itself more efficiently. These also prevent the innate nature of water to collect and pool in a certain areas of the roof, something which shallow roofs are notorious for doing.

Because shallow roofing tiles are more of a specialty product than a general one, it also requires a specific type of installation that may often differ from how other, more conventional roofing tiles are installed.

Ceramic roof tiles offer additional waterproofing benefits as well as a far more refined surface that allows water to simply ‘glide’ off. This helps to prevent the possibility of water stagnation and build-up on the roof, which is bad for your roof overtime.

To discover the best type of roofing tiles for your shallow roof; it is recommended to consult an expert roofing company.
