Pros and Cons of Installing a Spanish Barrel Tile Roofing in the Philippines

What You Should Take Note About Spanish Roof Tiles?

Hola, homeowners! Today we’re diving into the wonders of Spanish roof tiles. Specifically, Spanish barrel roof tiles.

These are super popular, no doubt. One of your neighbors might even have a red barrel tile!

You know, the C-type, curved roof tiles overlapping beside each other? It resembles the shape of a half-barrel, hence, of course, the name.

It’s a common sight, yes. But in numbers and performance, Spanish roof tiles in Philippines are practically in a league of their own. But as with everything, they also have their pros and cons.

Here are two VERY GOOD reasons why you should go with a Spanish barrel tile:


Vibrant, warm, traditional… and not to mention, super gorgeous— Spanish roofing has always been a showstopper. It brings a timeless and rustic vibe that no other roof tile can replicate, armed with the distinctive S-shape to finish off the Mediterranean charm.

Yup, it’s pretty hard to beat. If you’re all about that authentic Spanish villa vibe, then this will probably be your best choice. Like… ever.


When people buy Spanish roofs, they’re in it for the long haul. Their clay material lasts you typically a century or more. BTW, pro tip: schedule regular inspections to keep peak performance… even after a hundred years!

And here are two reasons why you probably shouldn’t…


Your foundation has to be pretty strong to hold up these bad boys. These Spanish tiles can be pretty hefty, and your home needs to be on board with the extra weight.

Consult your local roof contractor about whether or not these barrel tiles work best for you.


The bad news is the upfront costs of Spanish tiles are pretty high. But the good news is they’re a pretty great investment, long term.
