Are you considering replacing your tile roofing? do you know what kind of tile roof you currently have? there are more obvious types of tile roofing materials than others.
In the San Antonio area you'll find a very obvious territory style tile roof. you'll recognize them from the Mediterranean classic look that's been around the San Antonio area and a part of the culture for many years.
In fact as you navigate around the city you will notice some of the historic districts that have kept that very same looking feel that has become the part of a very iconic San Antonio.
These traditional terracotta tile roofs have been around and used for centuries now. There are tile roofs that have lasted for well over 100 years in places like Italy. In some cases individuals have deconstructed the tile roof and reconstructed it here in the United States.
Tire roofing can be a versatile and beautiful style of roof and often can be used to create a beautiful curb appeal and a Mediterranean look. Although, tile roofing on the front end can be considerably more expensive over the long term because of its long lasting durable qualities it actually might be more cost-effective if you were to average out the cost of other roofing materials such as asphalt that has I'm not shorter half life.
of course in the cases of the 100 plus year old tile roofing houses that have lasted in Italy they've obviously not seen a spring in San Antonio Texas and the hail that we can produce here.
Although it is safe to say that the tile roofs that r throughout Italy and Spain definitely do get hit with weather that could be very damaging.
One of the great things about tile roofing is the fact that in some cases where there is damage simple tiles can be replaced easily and with less expense comparatively to a cheaper asphalt shingles that would not be able to take the same street as clay tile roofing.
What are the other factors that is often overlooked about tile roofing is the redeeming factors of heat transferance and it's ability to equally cool and warm the house. Think of the old style Adobe houses that you would see out years ago perhaps in an old movie or an old black and white picture. These people knew the importance of creating the stick walls that would absorb the days heat and then irradiated back to the night. This type of technology is a tried-and-true ancient technology that helps with energy preservation. When it comes to 100% organic clay tiles you can't get any more eco-friendly than that. Obviously asphalt is oil and that is supporting an industry that we are hoping to get away from in the future but for now it is a solution for many people and when it comes to a roofing material it seems to work for now until we can find a way to become more green and recycle better. As for now Clay tile roofing is 100% recyclable whereas in some cases asphalt shingles although could be recycled in many municipalities they do not have the proper systems in place to recycle asphalt shingles so often they go dumped on the side of the road or dumped in another eye sore place that just makes you want to freak out because if you're anything like me the idea of wasting something and then creating an isotope just is not where I want our future to be.
