Choosing Roof Tiles for Your Roofing Extension

From plans to projects and picket fences, wheelbarrows, windows and warmth, renovating brings a lot of images to mind.

Renovating and extending can be a stressful, joyous and exhausting occasion. After all, it’s your home and your haven. But have you thought about the most important part of your home?

Your roof is the thing that shelters you and keeps you dry and warm, so it’s important to choose only the best materials when you install new roofing.

Let’s take a look at roofing tiles and why they’re one of the best choices you can make.

Benefits of Roofing Tiles:

  1. Insulation

Insulation is such an important part of your roof. You want a material that’s going to keep you warm in winter, cool in summer and one that will help to cut some dollars off your energy bill. Not only is a properly insulated house a pleasure to live in, but it’s also good for the environment! The less money spent on heating and cooling, the smaller your carbon footprint.

One roofing material that is an effective and efficient insulator is Terracotta tiles. They are actually heat-reflective. This means they bounce away the harsh warm sunlight. This reflection helps to keep your place lovely and cool during those warm summers.

  1. It Pays to Spend!

Although it can be tempting to save some pennies here and there, your roof is one aspect of the house where it pays to spend some money. Try to avoid cheaper roofing materials such as metal and asphalt. Don’t be afraid to get a quality new roof installed for your home! Luckily, tiles are a fairly affordable material. They will also pay you back by being long-lasting, boosting your property value and saving you money on heating and cooling costs.

  1. Reliable and Durable

You don’t want to have to get roof repairs every other year. It’s worth investing in materials that are reliable, durable and sturdy. Terracotta tiles are one option. They stand the test of time and won’t easily break, chip or crack.

  1. Aesthetics

How your roof and home looks is another important factor in your decision. After all, your home is a reflection of you and your personality. Terracotta roof tiles give your place a certain rustic charm. They have a Mediterranean appearance and will certainly turn some heads! They also retain their colour. This means they won’t fade, stain or mark over time. They’ll look just as good in ten years.

Live on the Coast?

If you live on the coast then your home may be prone to salt corrosion and rust. Avoid this issue on your roof. Choose a type of roofing product that is salt-safe and rust-resistant. Terracotta is the ideal solution for this!
