The basics of a tile roof
Worldwide, tiled roofing is the most popular type of material used and especially can be seen to prevail in areas such as Spain.
In fact, buildings with a more Spanish-type architecture in the US often have tiled roofing, usually made from Terracotta or slate to suit

Features of a tiled roof

Tiled roofing is constructed with overlapping parallel rows of tiles which provide the following qualities:

  • waterproofing
  • wind-resistance
  • sun & heat resistance
  • structural rigidity

Once of natures most apparent parables for the tiled roof could be the feathers on a duck’s back. Interlaced and neatly arrayed in sequenced rows – duck feathers (much like a tiled roof) provide a necessary layer of proofing against the constant threat of becoming water logged.
What about the tiles?…what makes the difference on from another?
The composite features and qualities of the whole structure (being the roof) are only but a results of the individual working units (tiles) coming together as one and fulfilling their collective roles.

In comparison with alternative roofing structures, tiles carry the following characteristics:

  • heavier in weight
  • stronger
  • greater endurance

…however, as an important point to add, due to being heavier in weight, tiled roofing also puts the structure of your house under more mechanical stress.
As a consequence, houses carrying traditional ceramic or terracotta tiled roofing require structural reinforcements, which are not needed for houses hosting lighter roofs made of alternative material.

Still keen on the traditionally tiled look, but don’t have a structurally reinforced house?

No problem, there are lighter alternative tile materials which are currently gaining in popularity for a number of beneficial reasons – one, of course, being weight.

Tiled roofing generally has a long lifetime value with most roofs not needing replacement within 100 year time frame.
Manufacturing warranties for tiled roofs are usually 50 years plus. This affords considerable investment confidence.

Tiled roofing vs. shingle roofing: For Your NJ & PA Home

What common alternatives are there to tiled roofing?
Shingle roofing is the most common roofing material found in Northern America – NJ & PA is no exception.

Why is shingle roofing so popular?

The immediate benefits of shingle over traditional ceramic or concrete tiled roofing are:

  • cheaper material
  • commonly available
  • easy to install by generalist handymen

…as such, shingle roofs have been a steady winner in the popularity stakes for decades throughout our dear nation’s domestic house building history.

What materials are shingle roofs typically made out of?

On your construction retail travels you will find shingle roofs made of the following material composition:

  • slate
  • plastic
  • composite materials
  • asphalt

The latter option being the most prevalent and widely sourced, especially for its exceptional waterproofing qualities.
Shingle roofs being of a more technologically modern branch of roofing material are more customizable in nature.
You will find they are available in a variety of:

  • colors
  • textures
  • shapes

…and are therefore considered more versatile in their application.

Tiled roofing vs. shingle – Pricing

t depends how long or short you are looking? Asphalt is cheaper in the short run, but a tiled roof lasts longer (over 100 years without need of replacement, if installed correctly.)

Tiled roofing vs. shingle – Climate

Asphalt shingle roofs are known to reflect the sunlight more effectively than tiled roofs. This makes asphalt a beneficial choice for keeping cooler interior temperatures during hotter months. The cost saving advantage here against air cooling equipment is attractive.
Also during heavy snow, asphalt has a greater ability for shrugging off snow load, not allowing the house structure to become burdened additionally during snowy conditions.
Tiles also offer resistance to freezing temperatures during bouts of extreme cold weather. Also, because of having a much higher tensile strength, tiled roofs are typically have the capacity to withstand a much larger snow load.

Tiled roofing vs. shingle – Weight

Traditional tiled roofing on you house rather than a shingle roof will dictate the need for structural reinforcements where necessary.
A shingle roof needs no such support.
Quick round up on the comparison
In short, whilst shingle offers the benefit of a cheaper building material for your roofing project saving you money immediately on budget…
A tiled roof with its longer lasting shelf life of over 100+ years, would be more economical over a lifetime.

A quick glossary of common tiled roofing materials

Metal tiles

  • metal roof tiles are thinner and lighter than their ceramic counterparts – and therefore present these as advantages

Copper tiles

  • this material has been used in roofing for thousands of years and thus has unrivaled durability, however they are expensive to maintain

Slate tiles

  • slate traditionally is a favorite natural tile material, in these modern times it is produced in numerous color variations

Ceramic tiles

  • ceramic within its production process is fired at high temperatures – making the resulting material highly fireproof. These tiles come in a wide range of sizes, shapes and colors

Polymer & sand tiles

  • a combination of a plastic polymer and sand – this composite is less likely than ceramic to break (less brittle), it is also fireproof, weighs less and requires little maintenance

Composite tiles

  • these tiles are comprised of acrylic, metal and stone – they give the advantage that they look like slate or clay tiles, but are lighter than both stone or concrete

Bituminous tiles

  • this is by far the lightest and easiest tiles to install. They come as made of fibreglasss covered in basalt chips or granite. Due to their user-friendly make up, they only require adhesive to install

Concrete tiles

  • concrete tiles are a good ceramic alternative mainly because they are less likely to break, yet are very heavy. You’ll need a reinforced architectural structure to support a roof made from these tiles.

Roof repair can often be completed within a few hours, depending upon the scope of the project. Replacing asphalt roofing is a much larger job and may require a few days. The timeline for both roof repair and replacement can be affected by the weather — rain, snow or excessive wind can cause installation delays.

Asphalt shingles are the leading choice for residential roofing in the United States. Asphalt shingles provide quality, durability and versatility and offer consumers the broadest array of colors shapes and textures. With an enormous range of styles, asphalt shingles can match almost every type of architectural design.
