Versatile Tile

If you have a tile roof, you know its benefits. And, while it’s durable, it is still vulnerable to damage, especially from inclement weather like hail.

For tile roof installation or repair, you have plenty of options to choose from. Here are just a few of the most popular types:

  • Concrete: Highly durable, these roof tiles are some of the most common on the market today. Requires a roof structure that can support heavy weight but they are also highly fire resistant. These tiles are also highly versatile and can be shaped to look like other roofing materials including wood tiles.
  • Spanish tile: A popular design with prominent curves and dips, this tile, also known as barrel tile, can be made of clay, metal, or even synthetic materials. They come in a variety of colors from classic red or orange to varying shades of green.

When you install a tile roof in the Texarkana area, you will get a roofing system that’s attractive and valued for its weather resistance and durability. Tile roofs are particularly resistant to severe weather such as hail and ice, and interlocking installation makes them resistant to leaks. Tile roofs come in a variety of styles, shapes, colors, and configurations suitable to a variety of residential home designs. Their attractiveness will improve curb appeal and increase the value of your property.

Tile roofs will generally last longer than shingle roofs. You can expect to replace a shingle roof within about 20 to 25 years, whereas a tile roof can last anywhere between 50 to 100 years, depending on the material used and how well the roof is maintained.

One caveat about installing tile: Tile roofing, in general, is much heavier than shingles, and some roofs may not be able to hold them without added support. If you wish to install a tile roof, we can help you determine if your roof can support it and what needs to be done to put it up.

Energy Efficient Roofing

These roofs are highly energy efficient and put less strain on your HVAC system, thus saving you money on your energy bills. The materials used have a natural resistance to heat, which is why they are often seen in warmer climates. But, the way they are layered on your roof helps with roof ventilation because natural air spaces are developed. This natural ventilation, research has shown, can reduce heat transfer from the roof deck to the attic by 70%. Another appeal of tile roofing is its eco-friendliness. All of the roofing materials used in a tile roof are completely recyclable. They have no chemical preservatives or harmful toxins.
