How Long Does a Tile Roof Last?

FREE ESTIMATE(623) 471-7096

Constantly exposed to all the elements of nature – over time, your roof can take a beating. Taking steps to prevent damage and minimize maintenance or expensive replacements begins with the type of roof you choose to install. In terms of durability, clay and concrete roof tiles are the most robust and safest materials in the roofing industry.

Typically, a Tile roof lifespan lasts 50 years in the state of Arizona. When installed properly, they are essentially maintenance-free and offer some of the best-extended warranties in the roofing business. Because of this, over time, homeowners can expect to save money on their roofing costs. 

Benefits and Longevity 

When it comes to Tile Roofing, there are many benefits to a homeowner. However, the two most considerable benefits to Tile Roofing are its longevity and cost savings over time. Both of these benefits derive from the durability of the material. 

Tile roofs have been known to withstand winds up to 150 miles per hour and hold firm through earthquakes. In addition, Tile roofs are fireproof and boast a Class-A fire rating. They are also robust against hail and can withstand hailstones larger than a golf ball.  Tile roofs can also maintain their structural integrity through shifting hot and cold temperatures.

Tile roofs have the lowest life-cycle cost of any roofing material and exceed seismic load requirements when installed to current fastening standards. Even today, centuries-old tile roofs remain intact in many places all across the globe. 

Tile roofs are easy to repair and maintain. Roof Tiles are easy to maintain because a single damaged tile can be individually replaced when broken. The value of low maintenance and durability will help you keep your peace of mind and increase the value of your home. Houses with tile roofing will typically sell better and faster – with more appraisal credits when compared to other types of roofing. 

Roof tiles are also available in many colors and styles, giving homeowners many options when choosing the right Tile for their home. Roof tiles can match any architectural style and be flat, round, or used to simulate wood shakes or replicate other building materials.

Longevity Factors

Although Tile Roofing is more durable than other roofing materials, there are still some crucial things to consider regarding the integrity and longevity of the material. While the material itself is solid and durable, the most significant factor to consider is the contractors doing the installation and maintenance work. 

When installing a tile roof, you want to look for a qualified contractor with solid references and up-to-date licensing. It is essential to choose a roofer with all the proper credentials to protect your investment and a strong service record to ensure proper maintenance in the future. 

In addition, you want to find a roofing company you can trust. Luckily, here at Pinnacle Roofing, we Licensed, Bonded, and Insured Phoenix roofers with over 25 years of experience. We also hold an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and offer comprehensive warranties for our clients.

  • I was in a hurry to replace my roof because Tesla solar was installing my system and had moved up my installation date. Pinnacle was able to bump up my roof installation a few weeks in order to accommodate my solar install. I really appreciated this. Everyone with whom I dealt was professional. I was happy with my new roof.

  • Had plywood and surface damage on a large 400 sq foot second story 29 year old walk deck/balcony. Pinnacle Roofing did an amazing job repairing existing plywood, adding a second layer of plywood and applying a four step Polycoat coating. The entire staff was helpful and in constant communication with me. I had twelve different companies come out over three months for estimates and was completely satisfied with my choice and the end results from Pinnacle.
