Tile roofs have been around for thousands of years. The tiles themselves are made from clay, ceramic, concrete, or slate. Each tile is secured to the roof deck by nails. Much like a shingle roof, a tile roof is completed by starting at the bottom or lowermost part of the roof, securing a row of tiles, then overlapping the next or second row of tiles over the first.
Tile roofs have several advantages, as well as some drawbacks. The benefits of a tile roof include durability, being able to withstand hailstones as large as 2 inches, longevity, a Class-A fire rating, high-wind resistance, recyclability, and a low cost over the long term. On the other hand, tile roofs are expensive to install and repair in the short term, very heavy, often requiring structural reinforcement and brittle.
