Roof Tile Showdown: Which one is the most suitable for your building?

In the construction of houses, roof tiles are an essential part. They not only provide protection from wind and rain and allow natural light into the interior, but also have an important decorative effect on the house. With the continuous advancement of production technology and craftsmanship, the variety of roof materials is increasing. However, this also makes many people feel overwhelmed when choosing roof materials. Today, we will introduce several types of roof materials commonly used in rural house construction. We believe that after reading this article, you will have a clearer understanding of choosing roof materials.

Color Steel Tile

Color steel tile is a steel-coated tile material without insulation layer, with fast thermal conductivity, no insulation or heat insulation. Its fire resistance is not as good as other tile materials, and its service life may be shorter. It may corrode, bend, and rust in special chemical environments.

Cement Tile

Cement tile is a very strong and durable tile material. They can withstand various climate conditions and natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and fires. However, cement tiles are heavy, require additional support structures, have high costs, and are not easy to maintain. They have a relatively simple appearance.


Metal Tile

Metal tiles are usually made of galvanized steel or aluminum and are popular for their lightweight, durability, easy installation, and maintenance. However, their cost is usually higher than other tile materials, and they may produce noise in extreme weather conditions. They have poor insulation and heat insulation effects, a short service life, and require regular maintenance.


Asphalt Tile

Asphalt tile is a low-cost and commonly used tile material. They are usually made of a mixture of fiberglass and asphalt. Asphalt tiles are prone to aging, with a lifespan of only about ten years. During installation, the covering method of bonding and nailing is used. If the bonding is not strong, they may be blown off in strong winds.


Clay Tile

Clay tiles are a tile material with a traditional style. They have exquisite appearance. However, this type of tile material is very rare, difficult to produce, relatively fragile, and requires careful installation and maintenance. Therefore, the price is higher.


Synthetic resin tiles

Synthetic resin tiles are durable in color, aesthetically pleasing, and feature Chinese architectural characteristics. They are made from highly weather-resistant engineering resin ASA, offering qualities such as lightweight, waterproof, fireproof, thermal insulation, corrosion resistance, durability, and quick installation. They are truly the optimal choice for roof decoration! With a lifespan of up to 30 years!

Through the introduction of the above types of roof tiles, I believe everyone now understands how to choose roof tiles! For those who have already built or are planning to build a house, which type of roof tile will you choose? Feel free to comment and discuss together~
