AZ Roofing Tile roofing is a very popular and common choice for homeowners that are seeking to add some aesthetically pleasing attributes to their home as well as a high quality roof that they can enjoy for many years to come. Some Western states in the US feature these types of roofs–and Phoenix roofing presents a good example of a geographical location where tiles can be found on many homes as a substitute for standard shingle roofing.

The most common type of tile Phoenix roofing that you will find are those that are made from clay; generally red clay. One of the main advantages to this type of roofing is that it is very fire resistant, even though the tiles are usually laid upon sealed wood beneath.

There are some other identifiable advantages to tile roofing as well. These types of roofs are resistant to mold, rotting and mildew, as well as insect infestations, such as killer bee hives, which are a common problem for homeowners in this region.

While tile roofs may be a bit more costly then, say, traditional shingle roofs that use tar, there are some other perks to owning them. For one, tile roofs are more resilient to the elements and tend to be longer lasting than other roofing choices. Additionally, even if a few tiles break over the course of a few years, you can have them replaced individually. Let’s not forget how visually appealing tile roofs are, which add some flare to any home they are installed on and work to really tie in the exterior color schemes of a particular house.
