Metal Versus Tile Roofing
If you are looking for a premium roofing material that is more durable
and lasts longer than asphalt shingles, a metal or tile roof may be your
solution. However, deciding between these two roof types requires more
thought than just which one looks best on your home. Each roofing material
has its pros and cons.
To determine which roofing material is best for you, there are several
factors to consider, including:
Look and appearance: While metal roofing comes in a variety of colors and profiles, tile continues
to offer the most diverse selection of colors and shapes.
Suitability: Metal panels can be installed on any slope of roof, while tiles cannot
be installed on roofs with certain pitches.
Durability: Depending on the thickness of the metal, most metal roofs are incredibly
durable. Tiles are also built to endure severe weather conditions.
Longevity: Metal roofs that are correctly installed typically last over 50 years.
The lifespan of tile roofs can exceed 75 years, depending on tile quality
and adequate installation techniques.
Wind resistance: Metal roofing panels withstand up to 140 mph winds. Tile roofs also stand
up against strong winds.
Hail resistance: Metal and tile roofing are the most impact-resistant roofing materials.
Sometimes, high profile tiles can be damaged by hail.
Snow and ice resistance: When correctly installed, both materials have a high resistance to snow and ice.
Moss resistance: A metal roof is highly resistant to moss, while a tile roof will require
routine maintenance to keep moss from accumulating.
Maintenance and care: A metal roof requires the least amount of maintenance. Tile roofs should
be inspected and cleaned regularly to prevent problems.
Installation time and cost: The cost to install a metal roof is much lower than a tile roof. It can
also take two to three times longer to install a tile roof.
Walkability: It is generally fine to walk on a metal roof. Tile roofs, on the other
hand, are very susceptible to break when stepping on them.
Are Metal Roofs Noisy?
You may have reservations about installing a metal roof because you have
heard that they make more noise than others when it rains. Let us set
your mind at ease. As long as the roofing materials that go underneath
the metal paneling are installed correctly, a metal roof should not be
any louder than other roof types.
