If you are trying to choose materials for a new roof, you may find it isn’t all that easy. Metal roof or roof tiles both have their advantages and disadvantages. Depending on where you live and your climate also makes a difference.

The sole purpose of a great roof is to keep your home and possessions safe. You want a dependable durable roof that will last for many years and stand up to the elements.

Metal Roof or Tiles

While both of these roofing materials come with plenty of advantages, these advantages are only as good as the installation. Always hire professional roofers for all your roofing needs.

Resistance and Durability

A good roof will stand up to all sorts of severe weather like rain, snow, hail, and wind, plus pests and other incidents.

Metal Roof

A professionally installed metal roof will withstand high winds and resist moisture, mold, and pests. Metal roofs will not catch fire and are also energy-efficient.

Tiled Roofs

Tiled roofs are also very durable. They are resistant to water and moisture damage, fire and pest-resistant, and will not become damaged from severe temperatures.

Design

There was a time when a roof was simply a roof and it looked like most after roofs. But, now roofs can be made to look like many other roofing materials while maintaining costs and durability.

Metal

Metal can be made to look like many other types of roofing materials, and pre-painted to increase its durability and appeal. Metal roofs can resemble clay, concrete, and tiles.

Tiles

Tiles are available in all types of materials, and can also be made to look like other materials. This is highly appealing, as various materials are very expensive and not always as dependable.

Longevity and Maintenance

Ideally, you want a roof that will last your lifetime and require very little maintenance.

Metal Roof

If your metal roof is professionally installed, you can expect it to last upwards of 70 years. This will depend on weather and maintenance. Metal roofs require very little maintenance and should be inspected at least once a year.

Tiled Roof

Depending on the type of tile you choose, these roofs can last for up to 100 years. Clay or concrete will last a long time. The type of tile you use may require a bit more maintenance, but you should always have a professional inspection completed.

Cost

Roofing materials can be pricy, but your roof is not something you want to do at a bargain. If you start with a professional team for the installation and quality products, then you will certainly get your money’s worth.

Metal Roof

Depending on the type of metal used, you can find metal roofing to be far less expensive than other types, plus, you can have metal tiles made to look like other types of materials.

Tiles

Once again, depending on the materials you choose, the tiles can become very expensive.
