Tile Roofing System
Concrete, clay and slate tiles have special characteristics of improving with age. As such, tile roofs are considered a premium product with a premium cost. Though tile roofs are marked with high initial costs, the longevity and reduced depreciation means the effective cost of tiles, over their life span, is significantly lower than a composition shingle roof.
Tile roofs, in addition to having lower effective costs, also provide thermal efficiency. The natural airspace around the tiles creates natural ventilation to release heat buildup on the roof deck. One of the most popular energy-efficient tile roofing systems is Moiner LifeTile by Boral.
Advantages of Tile Roofing are:
- Environmentally safe products
- High thermal properties
- Resilient to extreme weather conditions
Wood Roofing System
Wood shakes and shingles are made from either red or white cedar. Cedar is unique to other roofing materials because it contains natural oils that ward off bugs, while fighting mildew and degeneration. Wood roofing is also thermal resistant, which helps your home be more energy efficient.
