Tile roofing is a popular choice for many homeowners in Modesto. Tile roofs are long lasting, and can be quite beautiful to look at! They are also strong enough to withstand the weight of snow and ice during winter storms. The installation process varies depending on the type of tiles you choose, but we will talk about that in more detail below. We’ve compiled a list of some pros and cons associated with tile roofing services so that you can make an informed decision before choosing this type of roofing for your home or business.
The installation process of tile roofing depends on the type of tiles you choose. If they are interlocking, then installing them is fairly easy and can be done by a skilled DIYer. In order to install these types of roofs there must be an underlayment installed first such as plywood or OSB board. This will provide extra support for your roofing material so that it doesn’t sag over time due to heavy snowfall in winter storms. For clay tile roofs, this process can take anywhere from one day to two days depending on the size of your house--so make sure you get enough help!
Pros and Cons of Tile Roofing
Just like any other type of roofing, tile roofing has its pros and cons. The biggest pro is that it can last a long time--with some types lasting 50+ years! This, of course, depends on the type you choose for your roofing material. Clay tiles are generally considered to be very durable and have a low risk of leaks since they're fairly watertight from start to finish. On top of this, clay tile roofs are also fireproof which means that if there's an issue with fire safety in the area or at home (like a chimney) then these may be best suited as their longevity will prevent any damages due to heat exposure over time. This is not to say that there's ever going to be a safety issue but in Modesto, CA you can never be to sure so... 😉
