Tile roofs have great curb appeal, no matter the type, plus they are incredibly durable. Tile roofing has a Class A fire rating due to its fire-resistant qualities.
The following are different types of tile roofing:
- Concrete tile roofing – Concrete roofing tiles typically cost less than other types of tile roofs, while keeping its beautiful visual appeal.
- Clay tile roofing – Clay has been a popular roofing material dating back to 10,000 BC. Clay tile (or ceramic tile) can withstand hurricane-like high winds and is energy efficient due to its reflective properties. Clay roof tiles are very popular in the Mediterranean and associated with European countries. In the United States, clay tile is popular in southern states such as Arizona and Florida.
- Slate tile roofing – Slate roofs have long been considered a premium roofing material, primarily used in residential structures. Slate roofing offers several customer benefits, including a classic aesthetic appeal, durability since they are made of stone, and longevity. Modern homeowner choices include natural slate and synthetic slate shingles.
When searching for a tile roofer, choose one with experience. While tile can last 100 years, its installation requires a contractor who is sufficiently skilled with this type of roofing material. Metro City Roofing has the experience and does a great job with every roofing installation we perform.

We provide a variety of roofing services, including residential roof replacements and roof repairs and maintenance. We install tiles from premium manufacturers such as Boral, Ludowici, and more.
Architectural shingles now offer synthetic tile roofing, which imitates the look of a new concrete or slate roof without the weight issues that can impact a homeowner’s decision to select this type of roofing material. Due to the lightweight of synthetic shingles, owners can avoid additional roof support, which saves on costly structural reinforcements.
