Clay tile roofs crown new Orlando Florida contemporary homes

Clay tile roofs in central Florida

Clay tile roofs are beautiful for Orlando Homes

A clay tile roof sitting beautifully atop a lovely high-end residence in Orlando Florida is the kind of thing you see on the covers of architectural magazines, and on design brochures at your local home and building supply outlet. There is no denying that a clay tile roof, in the familiar terra cotta earth tones so prevalent in Spanish mission and southwest architectural designs, evokes feelings of serenity, style, and outright class. Premier Roofing has noticed that clay tile roofs are becoming the quality roofing material of choice for contemporary high-end residential roofing, as well. Clay tile roofs are often the perfect enhancement for new home designs.

Terra cotta clay tile roofs

Terra cotta clay tile is a baked clay ceramic tile with a very hard consistency that makes it waterproof. In its natural state, it has a natural red-brown color.  The red-brown color is a result of the large percentage of iron oxide in the clay, and has been around for centuries. Terra cotta continues to be the most common choice in clay tile roof color, largely because it is an earthy color that matches nicely with bricks and other paving materials so prevalent in landscape design.

Clay tile roof colors

Clay tile can be glazed with almost any color you desire. Historically, clay was one of the first roofing materials used on family homes, and will likely remain a common roofing material for some time. Its density and waterproof features make it an ideal material to protect your home. Understanding and appreciating the desires of homeowners who want a clay tile roof, but feel terra cotta colors would be inappropriate for modern home designs, clay roof tile manufacturers now offer a wide variety of colors. In addition to traditional terra cotta, pinks, reds, greens, beiges and browns, and blends of two or more colors are available for Premier Roofing to install on your high end residential home.

Clay tile roofing

Clay tile roofs last a long time, do not burn, and are resistant to rot and insects. The rich color of clay tile roofing adds special beauty to a home. Initial installation is a bit more complicated than some other roofing materials, and expert installation is essential.  Clay tile roofs tend to be heavy, so particular attention must be paid to roof pitch and structural stability. Also, clay tiles can be fragile if walked on, so smart homeowners have a qualified roofing expert perform roof maintenance for them. The trusted Orlando Florida clay tile roofing contractors at Premier Roofing can provide an excellent inspection and maintenance service to ensure your clay tile roof performs as well as it was designed to do.
