Roofing Information

 Tiled roofing has been in use since Roman times. Concrete tile roofs are the most indistructable roofs available. A well installed concrete or clay tiled roof will outlast all other types of roofing. This type of roofing also requires the least maintenance. The classic style of a tiled roof adds a distinct and superior finish to any home. Due to their durability and superior performance, homes with a concrete tile roof often command a higher re-sale value. Monier concrete roofing tiles have a performance guarantee of over fifty years. Roofing tiles do not suffer from rust or corrosion as with metal roof types. Concrete tile roofing also has superior thermal and acoustic insulation properties over metal roofing. Unlike metal roofing which requires constant maintenance, a simple wash down once a year will keep a concrete tiled roof free from debris. Due to the nature of the roofs and safety issues, it is advisable to call in a licensed roofing contractor to complete this work for you. Click here to view our homepage.
