Add longevity, efficiency, and curb appeal to your Missouri home by choosing a Spanish tile for your roof!
More and more, we are seeing Missouri homeowners shying away from traditional roofing products like asphalt shingles, giving their house a pop of curb appeal with versatile Spanish tiles. This “S” shaped clay roofing tile comes in a number of different shades and colors and gives the roof a unique multi-dimensional look. Yet, despite the upgraded appeal to your home, installing Spanish roofing tiles on your home is just as easy as shingles or shakes for an experienced Missouri roofer.
One of the oldest roofing materials on the planet, there is evidence of Spanish clay tiles being used to cover simple abodes dating back to 10,000 BC. From ancient Egypt to Europe and then North America, houses have crumbled to the ground while the Spanish tiles stayed intact. With a minimal amount of maintenance, a Spanish tile roof can last well into the next century.
