One of the most used tiles for roofing and is a man-made material so it creates a strong alternative to natural tiles. They are widely popular because they are well-known for being durable and long-lasting. Concrete tiles also contain water locks which prevent water infiltration and are resistant to hard types of weather like hail and wind. They also last for a very long time, with a life expectancy of around fifty years.
Clay is a popular choice because it not only looks good due to its unique look, but clay tiles offer a high-performance. The orange colour of clay is vibrant and ages well, so it doesn’t fade. Like concrete, they are also good in bad weather.
Unlike clay and concrete, slate is on the higher end of cost, but they are a valuable investment and as a result last a lot longer and require very little maintenance during their life span. They also provide excellent fire protection, as well as being both storm and wind resistant. They also absorb a miniscule amount of water. Slate also tends to vary widely in colour pigmentation, but most slate tiles are often grey, as well as green or purple.
