Clay roofing tiles aren't a style of roof that you see every day in Nebraska, but they are becoming more and more popular. We have had the opportunity here at Omaha Roofing to install many of these roofs over the past few years as their popularity has grown. Due to the increase in popularity, we have become experts at installing tile roof systems.
Clay roof tiles are designed to be overlapped, which is how the water-shedding component of this roof system works. Clay tile roofs are designed to be versatile, long-lasting, and very durable. These roofs also have the added benefit of being fire-resistant, which is essential for any home but specifically those that could be in wooded areas or areas prone to wildfires.
Clay tile roofs have been around since ancient times and still have their same aesthetic appeal today as they did then. The only drawback to these roof systems is the cost, as it is one of the most expensive systems to install. But even though these roofs are expensive, no one can deny the beauty and elegance that comes with one of these styles of roofs.
Clay tile is manufactured by baking clay into a tile, much like firing pottery in a kiln. The density and hardness of the clay tile are determined by the amount of time and temperature of the oven, as well as the type of clay being used. The manufacturer may also glaze the tiles or add surface texture treatments to the tiles as well. This results in a plethora of different types of tiles that can be made, which in turn gives the homeowner plenty of options to choose from.
Clay Tile Roof Installation
Typically there are two main kinds of fastening methods to install clay roof tiles. Usually, copper nails are used to secure the tiles as they are non-corrosive. The second most common method uses lugs or nibs, which jut out from the roof and are noticeable when driving by or looking at it from the street.
