Tiles are the most common roofing materials we see today in the Perth area. It also just so happens that our team is stacked with quality talent that are highly specialised in tile roofing. As such, the team at Roof Repairs Perth WA can sort you out with any of your tile roofing issues. We’ve worked with tile roofs so much that we have our own systems in place to efficiently get our boys in & out and have your tile roofing issue resolved quickly but also to the highest standard. It’s no wonder Perth residents turn to us, and why we continue to be booked out for months at a time. Having said that, tile roofs are usually made of two different materials: concrete (the most common) and clay (or terracotta).
The main difference between the two, apart from the material itself, comes down to the cost-benefit. Concrete tiles are more common, and so are more affordable, and much easier to install & maintain. Clay, or terracotta, tiles are not as common, and so are quite expensive, more difficult to install & maintain - however, have a longer lifespan from being more durable and low-maintenance.

As such, it’s really a matter of what the homeowner values in terms of cost-benefit, but clay tiles do have a more ‘unique’ look. Despite that, concrete tiled roofs make up the majority of the roofs we deal with and there isn’t much to complain about - assuming you continue proper maintenance & care to your roof.

Apart from that, there have been different cases where a homeowner would like to make the switch from tiled roof to metal roof. They may have been sold on the many benefits of metal roofing, or they may even just want to impress the neighbours.

A lot of the time we recommend tile roofs to our clients, and we would warn clients to be cautious when switching from tiled to metal roofing. Something people forget about is that doing so requires a whole heap of paperwork, planning permissions, structural surveys, etc. These costs & headaches can add up and all to install a more expensive material (in metal roofing).

Tiled roofs, especially concrete tiles, are a more simple, straightforward process and can do just as well as other roofing materials - if maintained properly.
