Tile Roofing Cost Guide

Tile roofing can be an attractive option that suits the architectural detail of many homes. The longevity of tile, as well as the classic look, are good reasons to choose this route for your roofing material. But do you pay a premium for that longevity?

The True Cost of Tile Roofing

Longevity and tile roofing go hand-in-hand. Keep in mind that a typical roof lasts at least twenty years, while a tile roof can carry a fifty-year warranty. Some tile roofs can last for a century with the proper care and maintenance. Your investment in a tile roof might be a one-time purchase, so it makes sense to choose the nicest tile your budget can handle.

Tile roofing is very durable, though it does have a few caveats. You should never walk on a tile roof, so as to prevent damage. A typical thunderstorm should not damage your tile roof, but severe weather with large hail and significant wind might damage some tiles. When it is time to clean the roof with pressure washing, only a qualified professional should handle the job. Those small issues can add up to a bit of added expense over the years.

The Cost Advantages of Roof Tile

With all that said, tile roofing can be an excellent return on investment. A home with a tile roof typically is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, thanks to the natural energy-saving properties of the material. Also, keep in mind that replacing the occasional damaged tile is always more affordable than replacing the entire roof every ten or twenty years.

Your choices in roof tile are not limited to the common red terra cotta. Today's roof tiles can be made to mimic any other type of roofing, are available in a wide variety of colors, and can be customized to provide the look that you need to complete your home design.

The Bottom Line on Tile Roofing

Roof tile prices cover a wide range, depending upon the tile itself and the skills required of your installer. Concrete tiles may start at $100 per square foot and go up from there, depending upon how customized they are. Clay tiles can start at $300 per square foot, while slate tiles can run up to $1000 per square foot. However, for a roof that can last a century or longer, the initial sticker shock should be eased by the long-term big picture.
