Ceramic Tile

Interlocking ceramic tiles create a stunningly beautiful roof that can last for 100 years or more. But this type of roofing requires a beefy support structure. "Lightweight" tiles can weigh six pounds per square foot, while heftier types weigh in at up to 18 pounds per square foot. For an easier load, try metal roofing that mimics tile, which may weigh as little as one pound per square foot.
