Clay and concrete Roofing in Lubbock

Clay tile

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 lasting up to 100 years. A good example of clay and concrete roofing in Lubbock is Texas Tech University’s campus!

Concrete Tile

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.

Some differences between the two

  • Clay tiles absorb significantly less water than concrete, making them more protective. 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.
  • 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.
  • Concrete tiles are less expensive than clay tiles. If you’d like to learn more about pricing, visit our contact page!
