Many Different Types Of Roof Tiles To Choose From



When it comes to roofing a home, a person is going to be faced with a lot of choices as to what to roof his or her home with. Of course, it's going to be roofed with tiles, however, what kind of tiles? There are all sorts of different kinds of roof tiles to choose from and not all of them are beneficial to have on one's roof in the long run. That being said, this article will help by discussing three of the best roof tile types people should use in order to properly roof their home.
First off, there are cement tiles. These tiles are great for a wide variety of houses because they mesh well with just about any style of home since they can come in a variety of colors as well as styles. Some of the best features of cement tiles include the fact that they're fireproof, so they can last a very long time because they are so durable. However, the only real drawback to cement tiles is that they are really hard to install and repair, which means that people generally cannot install these tiles themselves.

Secondly, there are metal roofing tiles. These tiles can be made out of a variety of metals, such as steel, aluminum, copper and even tin. They go well on all sorts of different houses because they can come in a few different designs and many different colors. What makes metal tiles so special, though, is the fact that they are extremely durable and that is what places them at the top of a person's list real fast. These tiles usually don't have to be replaced for about fifty years and can withstand even the harshest weather.

Lastly, there are synthetic roofing tiles. These tiles are great because they can come in a wide variety of designs and colors as well. They are usually made using either rubber or polymers combined with fillers. These tiles are very light and can be put on an existing roof, which makes it easier to have them installed. To add to that, they don't have to be replaced very often, either, as they often come with a fifty year warranty. In the end, there are a lot of different roof tiles types but cement, metal, and synthetic roofing tiles are three of the best to use, especially for the prices people can find them for these days.
