Tiles are typically made from clay, porcelain, or concrete. They are fired at high temperatures, which makes them durable and weather resistant. They also come in many different colors, shapes and sizes. Tile roofs are not as expensive as metal roofs but they can be very heavy and difficult to install. A tile roof will last longer than a shingle roof but it will require more maintenance over time due to its heaviness.
Metal roofs are made out of steel or aluminum sheets that are either corrugated or flat. The sheets can be painted in any color so you can have a color that matches your house perfectly! Metal roofs cost more than both shingles and tiles but they last longer than both of them too! Metal roofs do not need special maintenance like shingles because they don’t get damaged easily when it rains hard or snows heavily.
