Tile roofing is a great choice for roofs that experience hot weather or exposure to salt air. This is why you very often see tile roofs in the Southwest, coastal Florida, and California. They can also be ideal for climates in which infrequent rains dump large amounts of water in a short time, since many styles are excellent at shedding rainfall from cloudbursts.
A tile roof can last over 100 years, especially when installed in the right climate. Clay and concrete tile roofs have been known to withstand hail, high winds, and even fire. Once you install tile, you will never have to install another type of roofing again. Just in case, most manufacturers will offer a 50-year warranty.
TPO Roofing Systems
TPO is an excellent roofing system for warm climates. TPO roofing systems are an example of the improvements to flat roofs that are being explored. The seams of TPO roofs are welded instead of glued. They are less likely to separate when heated.
Manufacturers certify flat roof contractors to install the membrane and honor the warranty. TPOs gave a white surface that reflects ultraviolet light and keeps the structure cooler than other options.
