Consider Tile Roofing for Your Roof Replacement
If you’re in need of a roof replacement, tile roofing is a popular choice in Orlando for many reasons. Not only does it look great, but it is energy efficient, lasts a lifetime, and is environmentally friendly.
Concrete Tile vs. Clay Tile
As you consider a tile roof for your home, you’ll quickly discover that there are two primary types of tile materials, clay and concrete. Both offer the same benefits of being an excellent insulator, having a long lifespan, and being able to withstand Orlando weather.
There are a few differences between the two. Clay tile is made by baking the clay in a mold while concrete roofing tiles are made by mixing cement, sand, water, and a color stain and using a pressure treatment to form the shape desired. Because clay tile is actual clay, the color pallet is limited to earth tones. Clay tile is also more limited in its shape because it is only available in the shapes that can be made in the molds.
Homeowners who live in Conway, Winter Park or other neighborhoods along the Orlando Airport flight paths, may want to consider concrete roofing tiles because they insulate better than other roofing materials because they are extremely dense. Concrete tiles are also less expensive than clay tiles.
