Wood roofing may seem more affordable initially, but tile roofing could be the least expensive option in the long run as quality wood roofing is well constructed and built to last. On average, a wooden roof has an expected lifespan of 15 to 20 years. Tile roofing on the other hand is expected to last for over 40 years if it is properly maintained. So, even though a tile roof may cost more to install, it is expected to last twice as long as a wooden roof. You should also consider maintenance costs over the years, for which wooden roof maintenance will more than likely be cheaper. Both options have their financial advantages, but the ultimate deciding factor is whether it is most important for you to save money in the present, or in the long run.
Wood roofing may cost less up front, but tile lasts longer, allowing you to get more from your investment. To learn more and receive a quote, call 972-542-7774.
