Tile Roofs vs Shingle Roofs

Many people often have questions when choosing which roofing materials to invest in. Should you upgrade to a tile roof? Here are just a few reasons why a tile roof is an excellent investment.


Tile roofs offer a level of curb appeal that simply can’t be reached with minimum standard materials. Asphalt shingles can offer some protections against the elements, but they aren’t exactly visually appealing. Today’s tile roofs come in a wide range of styles to suit any décor, from old world Spanish to sleek and modern, our experts can help you choose a beautiful tile that will instantly add value to your home or commercial investment.


One of the most important characteristics of tile roofing is the quality and durability of the materials. Asphalt shingles can be easily damaged by high winds and hot weather, frequently splitting or chipping in a relatively short period of time. Tile offers an incredible advantage, by creating a strong barrier against rain, wind, sleet, snow and almost anything mother nature can throw at it. Tile roofs have a lifespan of a hundred years or more, while shingles are lucky to endure 10 to 20 years of exposure to Florida’s extreme climate.

Cost Over Time

Many homeowners opt for asphalt shingles because they prefer the lower cost. However, if you’re considering the long-term cost of caring for an asphalt vs tile roof, the tile will come out on top. Families and businesses that choose asphalt roofing materials will need to replace their entire roof approximately five times before a tile roof would need to be redone. Also, asphalt shingles will likely need more repairs between the total replacement. In addition, property owners also lose the increased home value that a tile roof can provide, creating even less return on the overall investment. When considering all these factors, a tile roof is the most cost effective option for those who want to enjoy true return over the next several decades.
