There are 2 types of tile that can give your home a beautiful, distinct look. Each has its own set of features & benefits.
Clay tiles are produced by taking molded clay and baking it at high temperatures to form a material that’s strong and impenetrable. From an environmental standpoint, clay is eco-friendly and comes naturally from the earth. It comes in earth tone colors but can be sprayed with enamel to produce more diverse tones that fit any style.
Clay is much lighter than concrete tile, making it a better option for homes that can’t handle too much weight. Clay isn’t very durable in extreme cold – which is why Florida is the perfect climate for this material!
Lastly, clay has half the rate of water absorption as concrete tile, so it’s much less prone to mildew or stains.
Concrete tile is more common among Florida residential areas and can closely simulate the appearance of any other kind of tile like clay or slate. It’s very versatile when it comes to styles and texture. Concrete tile is environmentally friendly and has the lowest life cycle cost of any other roofing material, making it a top choice for homeowners.
Concrete outperforms clay in colder climates and holds up to very low temperatures quite well, making it more versatile in any climate.
