How Well Do Tile Roofs Perform Against Natural Elements?

Roofers can now install concrete tile roofing on most modern homes. Compared to traditional roofing materials, tile lasts the longest. Its natural water shedding and ventilation features make this roof an excellent choice for warm and cold climates. 

With proper installation, a roof tile should provide excellent resistance against fire, wind and hail. 

Fire

Concrete and clay tile has been found to be safer than traditional roofing materials like shingles, wood shake and metal. A tile roof allows air circulation under the tile, reducing heat transfer to the attic during a fire. This roofing option has the highest fire rating for both the product and the installed system. The Class A fire rating includes a test for the spread of flame, intermittent flame and burning brand. 

Wind

Those who reside in places prone to tornadoes, hurricanes or extreme winds would benefit from tile roofs. It provides one of the best protection against weather-related damage. The design and construction of tile roofs provide high air permeability. This means it can resist severe storms and hurricane-force winds. According to the Tile Roofing Institute, clay and concrete roof tiles can sustain windows of more than 125 miles per hour. As a leading residential roofing contractor, you can count on Jack the Roofer for concrete roof tiles that will stand up to any kind of severe weather. 

Hail

Clay and concrete roof tiles can resist damage from hailstones that are larger than a golf ball. A tile roofing system has two layers of protection against hail. The material itself has a water-shedding outer shell while the underlayment of asphalt roofing paper provides an inner shell that protects the material from large hailstones. 

Concrete tile can be made to resemble wood, slate or any roofing material, but with higher durability.
