Here are some of the key reasons you should consider them for your roofing material:
A long lifespan
What other types of roofing tiles are available? Clay tiles offer some great benefits, but it’s worth exploring all of your options before you make a decision. Other great options include plain concrete tiles,profile concrete tiles, and slate tiles — all with their own unique benefits depending on your project.
How long will a plain clay tile roof last? Longevity is one of the key considerations when buying roof tiles. Manufacturers typically guarantee that plain clay roof tiles last for around 30 years, but that 60 years is a reasonable service life provided that they’re maintained properly.
How do you maintain a plain clay tile roof? Clay tiles tend to attract algae, so it's important to combat this. We recommend routine debris removal, and also preventing damage by inspecting your plain clay roof tiles after storms. Clearing the tiles and guttering from debris is also important, and we advise that you carry out an annual inspection to catch any problems early.
