Clay and slate roof tiles offer the ultimate curb appeal and long-term protection for Florida homes and businesses.
Slate and tile roofing options are popular throughout the state of Florida for several reasons. Two benefits New Image Roofing finds most notable are aesthetic appeal and service life. If you want to give your home a timeless look that lasts, you can’t go wrong with clay roof tiles or slate roofing shingles.
Both roofing materials are often referred to as “lifetime roofs” because of their longevity. When adequately installed and maintained by New Image Roofing, a tile roof’s lifespan is 100 years, if not longer. If you’re looking for unrivaled longevity, slate roofing’s lifespan is up to 150 years. When comparing slate and tile roofing systems to more traditional materials, concrete tiles reach about 50 years and asphalt shingles up to 20 years.
Clay tiles and slate shingles also provide a timeless look that enhances Florida’s beautiful architecture. The distinct look and feel of terracotta pops on stone and brick homes and buildings. Natural slate is one of the most distinguishable roofing products in the industry. The versatility of style and color options make it an ideal choice for almost any architectural style.
Along with enhanced curb appeal and longevity, New Image Roofing finds both slate and tile roofing offer tremendous benefits, including:
- High wind resistance
- Complete fire resistance
- UV ray resistance
- Insect resistance
- Hail resistance
- Eco-friendly material and recyclable
- Energy efficient
- Low maintenance
New Image Roofing installs clay and concrete tiled roofs in various shapes and sizes. Most common are Mission, French, interlocking, and Spanish style roof tiles. When you picture a clay roof tile in your head, you likely think of reddish-orange barrel tiles. However, they are available in multiple colors.
As varied as the options for clay roofing is, there are even more types of slate systems. New Image Roofing can help you choose between graduated, standard, random width, staggered butt, mixed color, textural, and inscribed slate roofing. Recently, synthetic slate roofing has grown in popularity compared to real slate because of reduced costs, improved durability, and customization.
