Denver Concrete Tile Roofing is Beauty
Tiles add fantastic curb appeal. Tile gives the unique ability to “custom blend” which simply means YOU get to help us design your roof and choose complimentary colors that enhance your home. More styles and colors are available with tile than you will see with other roofing materials.
Denver Concrete Tile Roofing is Durability
Properly installed tile roofs can withstand rain, snow, wind, and hail. We use Class A fire rated tiles. Our select tiles qualify for the class 4 impact resistance rating and have been tested to resist hail stones up to 2 inches. And tiles are known to help lower energy costs because they reduce heat transfer through air circulating under the tiles. Tile roofs require minimal maintenance compared to other roofing materials and last for a long period of time while maintaining the original aesthetics that we all love to see. This type of roofing system has been around for centuries so you can rest assured that this is money well spent on a roofing system that you can enjoy for many decades to come.
Denver Concrete Tile Roofing is Affordability
Long term, concrete tile roofing is the an affordable roofing system simply because it is meant to last for the lifetime of the structure. Other roofing materials will require re-roofing at some point and most likely while you still own your home. Only clay tile and copper compare to the life expectancy of concrete tile. We highly recommend this type of roof for those that want little maintenance and high end aesthetics to boot. Concrete tile roofing styles include mission, rounded and flat. Tile roofing systems can be made of concrete, rubber, or clay and are extremely durable.
Although there’s little maintenance necessary, the rafter or truss system for your roof must be able to handle the extra weight. There are reimbursements available for the cost of an engineering report from most tile manufacturers. Most homes can withstand the weight of tile without any modifications but due diligence is always best and having the home inspected when switching from any product to tile is required by most jurisdictions.
Clay and concrete tiles have similar physical properties and installation methods. Concrete tile is typically less expensive to manufacture than clay and it can be made anywhere. Clay tiles must be made near a clay quarry, so additional freight cost can drive the price up depending on your home location, and add to the overall cost of the roof. A well-constructed clay or concrete tile roof should last more than 50 years and provide you decades of enjoyment.
One other feature of a concrete tile roofing system from Roof Worx that will benefit our Denver and Front Range clients directly is its resistance to high winds. High winds are something Front Range homeowners are no strangers to. Due to its resistance to severe weather, concrete and clay tiles continue to be a favorite material among homeowners and businesses in the Front Range. With proper installation, tile roofing is one of a few select roofing systems that are proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles per hour found in the Front Range periodically.
Investing in Concrete Tile Roofing Denver concrete tile roofing can be a more costly type of roof installation as the materials are more expensive and require a solid home to support the load of the concrete tiles, which may require additional structure work (addressed above). However, a Denver concrete tile roofing system will last on your home for years to come, improve the resale value of your home, and is extremely aesthetically pleasing.
