Tile roofing is extremely durable, energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and requires low maintenance. This type of roofing usually uses two types of materials—clay and concrete—both of which have an average warranty of 50 years. If you’re looking for the longest-lasting option, we recommend going with clay tiles, which can outlast concrete tiles.
Concrete and clay tiles are different from each other, and it’s important to understand them in order to decide what type best works for your building or home. Concrete tiles absorb twice the amount of water compared to clay tiles, can weigh about 40% more than clay, and don’t retain their color as long. Additionally, clay tile roofing tends to last 100 years, whereas concrete tiles usually last an average of 30 to 50 years.
