Clay tiles are very popular from centuries ago. As compared to any other types of roofings, clay tile roofing has a greater life span. It does not affected by or harmed by insects, does not become burn or rot. Also it is protected from harmful UV rays and is highly resistant to wind because of their weight. Clay tile comes with different varieties of colors and styles and requires a very little maintenance.
Clay tiles have some drawbacks also. Due to larger weight, we have to use more strengthen materials for their support underneath. It increases installation cost. If it is doing for the first time, first we need to make it sure that our roofing has the strength to withstand the total weight.
Next thing is the cost of each tile. It is comparatively more than any type of roofing materials but one fact we have to consider is that they should never need replaced after installation.
