If you’re building a home, moving into a new property or simply looking to make some home improvements to your current property, you may be tempted to upgrade the material used for your roof. When it comes to roofing, there’s a whole host of different materials to consider and they often have different properties and benefits. Here, we discuss the specific benefits of choosing concrete or clay tiles.
Something to pay attention to when choosing the material for your roof is how much longevity the material has. Both concrete and clay tiles perform well in this category, as they provide natural ventilation and water resistance. Clay and concrete tiles are expected to last between 50 and 100 years, although you can extend their lifespan with a protective coating from Kingdom Coatings.
As well as lasting for decades, tiles are also relatively energy efficient, so they will cost you less on your annual energy bills once they’ve been installed. The materials used have natural thermal resistance and the overlapping of the tiles to create the roof also creates ventilation that helps to form a natural thermal barrier. This ventilation that occurs underneath the tiles, combined with a pitched roof, creates a cooling effect in the summer and retains heat in the winter.
Finally, tiles retain their strength even when faced with extreme weather like high winds. If you live in an area of the country that routinely gets battered by strong winds and storms, tiles are certainly a choice to strongly consider as they can withstand winds of up to 150 miles an hour.
At Kingdom Coatings, we can give your concrete or clay tiled roof a brand new lease of life with a protective coating. This coating can restore your roof’s appearance and functionality so it will be almost as good as new.
