Tile roofs are unique amongst other roofing options because of their natural thermal resistance and their above sheathing ventilation. This can result in greatly reduced heat transfer. In today’s article, Halo Roofing Inc., one of the top roof replacement companies in our local area, discusses why tile roofs are energy-efficient and explains their benefits.
Tile Roofs and Energy Efficiency
The materials used to make tile roofs have natural thermal resistance. This thermal resistance is created by the large cross-sectional areas of the tiles once they are installed. In addition, tile roofs are installed individually. This creates a natural airspace around the tiles. This airspace then acts as a thermal barrier that regulates heat transfer to the roof deck. A properly installed and maintained tile roof can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Research by the Tile Roofing Institute and Dr. William Miller at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has shown that sub-tile ventilation and a pitched roof design can reduce heat transfer by 70% when compared with a typical asphalt shingle roof on the same house. As an expert in roof installations and storm damage roof repair, we believe that tile roofs are an energy-efficient and cost-effective choice for your roof replacement project.
Other Benefits of Tile Roofs
Tile roofs also have plenty of other benefits. Roof tiles come in a full range of profiles and styles and this allows them to match any architectural style. They are also incredibly durable because tiles are built to withstand high winds and hail. Tile roofs also have a low life cycle cost and they are environmentally friendly. They are also easy to install, particularly if the roofing company is a tile roof specialist like us.
