Tile is another classic and iconic roof material that comes in many colors and architectural styles. Often, the lifespan on a tile roof can exceed 70 years and outlasts the other roof accessory products (like flashings and underlayment). Tile roofs are the most energy efficient roofing because the loosely laid tiles allow air to circulate under them. Tile is resistant to fire and moisture which means they will not rot out. Tile is expensive to install, as each piece has to be hand laid. Similarly, repairs to tile roofs can be more costly.
