Tile Roofing On Long Island, NY
Spanish Clay Tile roofs are common on commercial properties. Their unique style looks the best on Mediterranean types of buildings.
Clay tile is most often thought of in the traditional "S" or "Spanish" tile look but clay can now be made in several other patterns as well.
Tile is a very resilient material and is able to withstand some of the harshest elements such as hail, wind, and fire. The one drawback to tiles is their weight; they are very heavy, and require certain structural standards for the frame and decking of the roof.
Spanish clay tiles have a great life expectancy, with a minimum duration of 40 to 50 years. Tiles may need to be predrilled and nailed if you have a steep pitch roof, or even supported by metal brackets. Tile roofs offer one of the longest warranties in the roofing industry. Most tile manufacturers (both clay and concrete) will offer a minimum of a 50 year limited warranty on their products.
