Clay Roof Tiles
With anything, we often turn to things that are time-tested as a guarantee of quality. Roofing materials are no different. In thousands of years the purpose of roofs hasn't changed, so why should the materials? There's evidence of clay roof tiles being used as long ago as 10,000 B.C. They're still used today. And if they lasted long enough to be found 12,000 years later, why not?

Replacing your roof is a hassle. It leaves your home exposed to the elements and can take a while to complete. For this reason, you want to do it as little as possible. With clay roof tiles you can be sure it won't be a regular occurrence. You can expect a roof tiled with clay to last 100 years or more. So barring some kind of natural disaster, you probably won't need to replace it in your lifetime. Think of all the money and hassle saved by only having to have your roof done once?
Some types of roof tile may be susceptible to mould and mildew. This means you'll need to spend time cleaning them to ensure they look their best. Not only is this time consuming, but having to be up on your roof for extended periods can be dangerous. Fortunately, if you choose clay roofing tiles, you won't have this problem. Clay is resistant to mould and rot, so maintenance is virtually non-existent. You'll save time and not have to risk your life keeping your roof clean.
Roofs can look bland and boring. Without having a real choice of colours or styles, your roof can detract from the overall look of your home. Clay tiles, however, are available in a range of styles. You can get different shapes and colours depending on what you need. You won't have to worry about colours fading; they're baked in to ensure they last. If you have or are working on a listed building, it's likely clay tiles will be favourable. Because of their historic use, you may need to use them to be consistent with pre-existing style. Any home with a clay roof is bound to impress.
