Because air circulation is enhanced by the spaces under the curved tiles, tile roofs tend have great durability and can last up to 50 years.
Thanks to their composition of stone or baked clay (clay, terracotta, ceramic, slate or concrete are the most often used materials in creating tile roofing materials) tile holds up well under harsh weather conditions, better than almost any other material.
Tile naturally repels insects and is immune to rot.
Due to the unique shape of the tiles, tile roofs shed water extremely well.
Because tile is made with clay, stone or concrete it is highly fire resistant.
Tile roofing material requires little or no maintenance.
