Hillsborough Roofing Systems

Hillsborough roofing systems states that one of the best ways of increasing the value of a home is by using a cement or fired clay tile roofing. The reason for this is tile roofs are much more durable and classy looking than some other roofing options. The existence of some century old homes in Europe that still have its original cement or clay tile roofing is sufficient proof of the durability of this roof.

Clay tiles are also available in various colors and architectural styles which you can choose from to match the design and architecture of your home. Many insurance companies reduce premiums for all houses that have tile roofing as tile roofs are fire retardant and provide added safety and protection to any house. So in a way, you stand to save money while enhancing the security of your home by installing tile roofs.

Besides being fire resistant, Hillsborough roofers claim that this roofing is also impervious to high winds. While winds as strong as 125 mph can easily strip off most roofing, it cannot strip off concrete and ceramic clay tiles.

Of course, like everything else in life, there are some disadvantages associated with tile roofs. The most obvious disadvantage is the fact that it is much more expensive, when compared to other roofing materials. However if you consider the added protection the tiles offer your home, its increased price is sort of justified.

Clay ceramic tiles are the most expensive

Clay ceramic tiles are more expensive options while custom-glazed and premium clay tiles cost three times its rate. So if you plan to convert your roof to tile roofing, make sure your pocket is ready too.

Moreover, as concrete and clay tiles are heavy, they need trusses and rafters for its installation, to ensure your roof can bear the weight of the tiles. All this eventually adds additional expenses to laying tiles for your roofing needs.

tually adds additional expenses to laying tiles for your roofing needs.

However if you are looking for longevity, beauty and added value to your home, then these benefits greatly outweigh the increased costs of tiled roofs. Though you have to initially pay more for tile roofs, Hillsborough roofing systems remind you that based on the material, they can last more than 50 years. It is up to you to decide if you should pay less for a short term roof, or shell out a bit more for added security and protection to your home for more than half a century.
