A tile roof is a roof made from clay, ceramic, or concrete tiles. Each tile is secured to the roof deck by nails. Just like asphalt shingles, a tile roof is completed by starting at the bottom or lower most part of the roof, securing a row of tiles, then overlapping the next or second row of tiles over the first. Some key benefits of the tile roofing system are durability, longevity, fireproof, high wind and storm resistance, recyclable, and breathable.
