Clay Tile Roofing in Westchester County

clay roofing westchestre nyAt B&W Roofing we are proud to carry on the long tradition of clay tile roofers here in Westchester. Our clay tile roofing services include clay roofing installation, clay/tile roofing repair and copper flashing fabrication. When most of us think about clay tile roofs we are picturing the familiar tile shape known as a split cylinder or barrel tile, this clay tile produces the wonderful rolling, undulating roof pattern associated with Spanish or mission-style architecture.

In Westchester, we have installed a number of handsome flat tiles, fashioned to resemble roof slates, shakes and shingles more popular here in the North East. We have even worked on repairs of clay tile homes in Pelham with elaborate curves and flutes, to emphasize the special appearance of the home they adorn.

Benefits of Clay Tile Roofing

“Tile roofs, in either clay or concrete, surpass other roofing materials in appearance, fire safety and durability…The chief characteristic of clay tile is its elegant appearance, which over the years takes on a character and patina unequaled by other roofing.

Even from hour to hour the appearance of a clay roof varies with the changing pitch of the sun. In addition, clay tile is non-combustible; it doesn’t decay or corrode, no need much maintenance. And in its better grades – which are proof against moisture and damage from freezing – it often outlasts the nails that secure it.” What John Warde wrote in the New York Times back in 1988 is as true today as it was then.

Nothing makes a home pop-like a tile roof. Talk about curb appeal. Tile roofing is a show stopper – when paired with a home of a mid-western or Mediertian style.

If you are considering putting a clay tile roof, slate roof, standing seam metal roof or concrete roof on your home you are likely looking at costs and durability – here is a nice chart to help you understand which roofing materials last the longest.

Roofing Lifespan Comparison

Roofing Material Life Span
Asphalt shingles 20-50 years
Architectural asphalt 25-30 years
Wood shingles and shakes 20 years
Metal 40-80 years
Slate, concrete and clay tiles 100 years

Tile Roofing Through Time

  • Clay tile roofs have a long history dating back to China, clay tiles have been found from all the way back in 10,000 B.C. Clay tiles also appeared in the Middle East around that time.
  • Tile roofing was brought to the United States as an export skill brought over with European settlers—around 1650 with the Dutch on the East Coast and with the Spanish missionaries on the West Coast in the 1700s.
  • Back then things were of course done a bit differently and Clay roofing tiles were molded by hand not in mass by machines as they are today.
