The vast majority of roofs in the United States are asphalt shingle roofs. It only makes sense given their affordability. However, could tile roofing be the better option? In this video, you will learn more about tile roofing and why it could beat out shingles and metal roof.
While shingle roofs are affordable, tile roofs have something else going for them. Tile roofs are great because they tend to be much better quality.
For example, they can last significantly longer than shingle roofs. Plus, tile roofs reflect heat while shingle roofs absorb heat. This means that a tile roof may end up saving you money on your electric bill year after year because your air conditioning system will not have to work as hard. By some estimates, a tile roof may be 8% more heat efficient than a metal roof. This means that there will be 8% less heat coming from your roof each year. This is a lot of heat reduction when you consider how big your roof is and how much surface area it has to absorb energy from ultraviolet light. This is just one of the many reasons to consider tile roofing.
