The Comprehensive Guide To Types Of Tile Roofing

2 min read

There are many types of tile roofing that you could consider for your home. Choosing the right one will often come down to consulting a specialist as well as deciding on what will look the best and most functional for your property. Here are some of the most popular types of tile roofing for your property:

Clay Roofing Tiles

Clay roofing tiles are popular because they are durable against heat and they are also extremely resistant to rot. Clay tiles hold their value over time and they come in a wide range of color options. Featuring a long lifespan and fire resistance, these are resilient tile options but they can require some improved supports for your roofing structure and they can be more expensive than some other tiles on the market.


Concrete roof tiles are reasonable to produce and install and they are less prone to breakage. They are highly durable solutions and they are available in many styles. Concrete is a great modern choice and it can be less expensive to install than slate. The only con to installing tile is that they can be very heavy and they might require structural supports.

Bituminous Roof Tiling

Bituminous roof tiles are made out of cellulose, fiberglass, and basalt chips. They are cheap to install and they likely don’t require an upgrade to your roofing structure. These types of tiles are less prone to leaks and they come with specialty textures that make them perfect for reducing wear. They do lose some durability when compared to other roofing tile varieties, however.
