While clay roofing tiles aren’t the most popular roofing type here in Nebraska, there has been a growth in popularity. Here at Lincoln Roofing Company, we have had the opportunity to install a large number of these roofs over the last few years, and we have become experts at the craft.
The thing that makes tile roofs so unique is that they are fire-resistant. Having that benefit makes all homeowners happy, but it’s especially exciting for those of you who may live in an area that experiences a lot of wildfires. The water-resistant element of the roof comes because the tiles are built overlapping each other, which gives the tiles the ability to shed water. Clay tile roofs are very versatile and will last you a long time, making them a great option.
The one drawback to this style of roof is the price. Clay tile roofs are a costly style to install, but they also have a lot of unique features that make the cost worth it. This roofing style is very reliable and has proved that for many years. Clay tile roofs also look very appealing. Your roof will be looking beautiful and elegant, should you choose this option.
The installation process of a clay tile roof is relatively simple. The tiles are held to the roof using wire, individual clips, concrete, ballast stones, or metal clips. On some tile roofs, different kinds of nails can also be used, such as aluminum nails, steel nails, or stainless steel nails. A third way the tiles can be held down is by using lugs or nibs. This installation process is very common and is visible from the road if you’re looking as you go by the house.
