As a resident of Colorado, you know that our beautiful state offers over 300 days of sunshine, four (occasionally) full-length seasons, and gorgeous views in every direction, from the Rockies to the Eastern Plains. You also know that while we have more sunshine than most states, we also have plenty of wind, snow, rain, hail, and even the occasional tornado. With the diversity of weather that we have, it’s important to have the best roofing material on your home to protect your family and your house. Our top pick for roofing material in Colorado? Tile.

Whether you’re doing a new roof install with tiles, a tile roof restoration, or roof tile repair, there are some important things to know about having a tile roof as a homeowner in Colorado.

Is it Wise to Have a Tile Roof in Colorado?
Some folks believe that tile is a poor choice for material thanks to the epic size and amount of hail that some parts of our state get, but that’s a misconception. Tile is incredibly durable and an amazing choice for Coloradans! Both clay and concrete tiles:

• Last up to 100 years, whereas other materials last mere decades
• Are incredibly resilient and can withstand hail, high winds, and fire
• Will never decay
• Are insect resistant
• Can withstand both extreme heat and cold
• Are environmentally friendly
• Are energy efficient
• Are low maintenance

How Often Do I Need to Repair a Tile Roof in Colorado?
Even though tile is incredibly resilient, it’s not impervious to all damage. You should call a professional roofer to perform roof tile repair anytime that you notice missing or damaged tiles or leaks. While it’s impossible to say exactly how often you’ll need to do roof tile repair or have a tile roof restoration performed, you should plan on having an annual roof inspection done to help mitigate larger repairs down the road. You should also have an inspection done after every particularly bad storm.
