Tile Roofing in Phoenix
Tile roofs have been around for centuries. The first ones were reportedly installed in Greece around 3000 BC. Those tiles were made of readily available materials like clay and slate. Modern tile roofing is cast from various media, including concrete and plastic, but the basis of its elegant style and lasting durability is the same.

Homeowners looking to install tile roofing must decide between several shapes. The simplest, of course, are flat tiles laid to overlap. Other shapes combine into curved and flat shapes that make a rain channel. There are vertical block tiles, interlocking tiles and tiles with semi-cylindrical shapes. Tile roofing is a beautiful addition to a home’s exterior style. It carries design elements unmatched by other roofing materials. In addition, the tile’s color is readily adjusted to match the color of any home.
Reliable and safe
The tile roofing used by the ancient Greeks was discovered by archaeologists in good condition. With modern manufacturing processes and the traditional durability of tile roofs, new ones can last a half century.
Roofing tiles are naturally non-combustible, so they are safe from fires. A professionally installed tile roof can prevent any house from catching fire even in the event a nearby home burns or if wildfires strike. Tile roofing is also resistant to mold, rotting, and damage caused by insects, can withstand hurricane-force winds, and does not shrink and expand with temperature fluctuations. It also has reflective properties that increase the efficiency of heating and cooling systems.
