Advantages of Roof Tiles against Harsh Weather ConditionsAugust 18, 2016


When in search of the ideal materials to provide your home's roof with adequate protection, no matter what the weather conditions are, you need to consider the advantages of roof tiles of concrete or terra cotta. Tiles such as these are stylish, come in a variety of colours and are highly durable throughout the years. They also will complement a range of house styles from traditional to modern. The biggest benefit of installing these tiles on your roof, though, is the fact that they stand up in all sorts of harsh weather conditions.

Tiles Will Not Fade With UV Exposure

The colours of these tiles are fade resistant under UV exposure. Asphalt shingles, on the other hand, fade a bit each year. This is part of the reason why these shingles need replacing every 15 to 20 years on average while the terra cotta or concrete tiles will last 50 years or longer while retaining a high degree of their colour.

Heavy Winds Will Not Blow Tiles off Your Roof

Tiles are heavy enough to stay in place during high-wind conditions. In comparison, asphalt shingles blow off easily causing the need for replacement after a major storm. With tiles, it is rare that you have an issue with windy weather.

Terra Cotta or Concrete Tiles Stand Up to Freezing Conditions

Concrete and terra cotta tiles endure freezing weather in champion style. They will endure the freezing and thawing cycles that come in the cold weather months without cracking.

Water Will Not Erode or Corrode Tiles

Tiles will not erode or corrode with exposure to water from storms. The last problem you need is your roof wearing away slowly each time rain comes your way. In addition, concrete and terra cotta tiles are both rust resistant.

Roofing Tiles Are Fire Resistant

If you live in an area prone to fires, roofing tiles of concrete or terra cotta are the ideal roofing material for your home since they are fire resistant. You and your family deserve the best protection possible from fire risks and these tiles will provide it for your home.
