Upkeep, cost and sustainability
A tiled roof has one of the lowest life-cycle costs of any type of roofing material. This is due in part to the longevity of the roof tile – centuries old roof tiles are still in evidence today.
Concrete and clay tile roofs are a permanent solution for your roof, and are intended to last the lifetime of the home they protect. Although there is an initial cost to install a new tile roof, when looked at across its lifespan a tile roof is one of the cheapest roof options available.
They have the ability to keep houses warm in winter and cool in summer due to the natural air ventilation under the tile, which allows for air circulation and a produces a natural heat transfer barrier.
Tiles are environmentally positive products. The materials required to produce tiles do not deplete scarce natural resources, and they do not contain any chemical preservatives. Their long life reduces the need for re-roofing, and avoids clogging landfills, as most tile waste can be recycled.
One of the best methods of tiling a pitched roof is the plain tile. Plain tiles are available in both concrete and clay - in a variety of sizes, and indeed in a variety of colours. Clay tiles are less porous than concrete tiles, and therefore less prone to staining, they are also more durable than their concrete equivalent. Concrete tiles are usually a slighter cheaper option, and are often designed to look like clay tiles both in colour and texture.
Pantile, Roman, Double Roman and Regent are among the traditional profile tile designs. Interlocking clay or concrete tiles, with a distinct ridged profile which gives a specific ‘look’. The weight of the tiles is often a consideration when re-tiling an existing roof, with concrete tiles on average being 40% heavier than their equivalent clay tile.
