How are Tile Roofs Different from Other Roofs?

The materials used for roof covers have a great impact on the general and final appearance of the house. But in addition to their aspect, we must pay attention to their quality and, of course, to the price.

Each type of cover has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered.

In general, a roof is a big investment, but even more so if it is covered with tiles. Tiles are expensive compared with other roof materials, but Naples’ expert roofers claim they are also some of the best materials you can get, being used for covering roofs in various geographical areas. They are resistant in any type of climate and match well any architectural style due to their appearance and technical properties. They can be installed on roofs with both very high and very low slopes.

One of the biggest advantages of a tile or shingle roof is its durability; such a roof can have a lifespan of up to one hundred years. In comparison, a common asphalt roof is guaranteed for only 15-20 years.

This type of roof is waterproof and also ensures comfortability indoors, while other roofing materials need additional insulation and ventilation.

From an aesthetic point of view, the tiled or shingled roof can be superior to other types of roofs, especially if we talk about ceramic tiles.

On the other hand, the ceramic or asphalt tiles are heavy (approximately 40Kg / sqm), compared to lightweight materials such as cedar shakes or metal sheets.
