Tile roofs come in many different types, styles and materials. For many, a tile roof is a finishing touch on a high-end construction project that has a distinct quality look. Tile is also an excellent choice to match certain home styles such as mission and Spanish style homes. Some homeowners can’t imagine their home with anything but tile roofing. The most common roofing tile is manufactured from concrete, but they also come in other materials such as traditional clay, metal, stone coated steel and fiberglass. In some cases, people even use real stone or slate tiles although this isn’t common as the cost is high.
More About Tile Shingles
Most styles of roofing tiles come in a wide selection of shapes, textures, styles and colors. The most common and cost effective type is the standard concrete tile. These tiles come in a smooth or textured finish and some have a staggered leading edge to mimic the look of a wood shake. Concrete tiles are also made in different shapes such as corrugated or barrel/Spanish to perfectly match the style of the home. Tiles are also known to be durable and typically have a long service life.
