Tile Roofing: A Worthy Investment

Tile and flat roof installed in 2020 by Modern RoofingFor the ultimate coverage in terms of sheer durability, nothing comes close to a tile roof.  Tile roofs are especially popular in dry climates like Los Angeles.  Clay tiles are traditionally made of curved clay, but with advances in roofing technology, they now come in all shapes and sizes.  This makes tile a very versatile roofing material to work with.  Some brands of tiles are even specifically engineered to be lightweight in comparison to their traditional European counterparts.  It puts less stress on the roof’s framework, which ultimately means less stress for the property owner!

Since they’re a significantly stronger and longer-lasting material than shingles, tile roofing can be expensive.  However, it is well worth the initial investment, because a properly-installed tile roof can last for decades.  And if you have a tile roof that needs maintenance, you’re going to want to go with a roofing company that has a strong portfolio of tile installations.  Here at Modern Roofing, we have a team of experienced roofers and contractors who have collectively installed, maintained, and repaired thousands of tile roofs over the past two decades.  We’re dedicated to providing you with a tile roofing experience that will leave you away with a strong peace of mind.

Tiles Come in Many Styles!

Because California fire codes prohibit installing new shake roofs, the only way to safely get this look for your property is using an alternate material.

Fortunately, there are many tile varieties that can convincingly imitate wood shakes.  Unlike shakes, tiles aren’t as prone to catching fire.  Thanks to the versatility of a good tile roof, living in Southern California doesn’t resign you to a specific aesthetic!  Some tiles can closely interlock to conform to the contours of your roof for a sleek, modern look.

Of course, traditional mission tiles are a classic for a reason.  Some tiles in Europe have lasted for hundreds of years–longer than the United States has been a country!  The underlayment does deteriorate over time and occasionally need to be replaced.  However, the tiles themselves can last for generations if the property owners take good care of them.  This can save property owners lots of money in the long run.
