ABF Roofing offers commercial roofing in Lubbock, including clay tiling. Otherwise known as Spanish tile, clay tile roofs come in various colors, but are normally found to be terra-cotta. Before installation, they are baked at a high temperature which seals the color into them, preventing fading or peeling over time. They are also very good insulators and extremely durable with a lifespan of up to 100 years. Concrete tiles also have a long life, lasting 50 years or more. They can be painted any color and have a few design options to choose from. Highly durable, these tiles can serve as great emulations of clay, wood shake, slate, or stone tiles, while giving you a significant increase in durability and lowering your risk of damage.
When choosing roofing for your commercial building, there are a few things to consider. For example, while clay tiles absorb significantly less water than concrete, making them more protective, they are more expensive. When concrete gets wet, it absorbs and becomes heavier causing added stress to a building’s structure. This also makes concrete more prone to stains and mildew growth. However, concrete tiles are able to withstand more harsh weather conditions, while clay has a tendency to crack at low temperatures. This is why clay tiles are mostly only found in warmer climates. Clay tiles hold their color over time, even in harsh weather conditions, while concrete fades faster and is more prone to staining.
