One of the most popular up and coming trends is topping your home with a tile roof installation. While shingles have long been the popular pick, homeowners are now looking to upgrade from standard to stylish. Around for centuries, it has long been the roofing material of choice in countries like the Mediterranean and Europe. Give your home a more sophisticated façade by choosing tiles.
Benefits of Tile Roofing
As a readily-available natural resource for thousands of years, clay tile has been tested and proven to last for 100 years or more. With proper care and maintenance, this will be the only surface you ever have to install on your home. As a heavier material, it can resist wind-lift in hurricane-prone areas that shingles cannot offer. It is also resistant to fire and insect infestation.
While many roofing materials have spent years clogging up the landfills, your new tile roof never will. Made from natural resources, all intact tiles can be reused if you ever decided to remove them from your home. We are the residential roofing specialist who can handle the job with precision and care.
Complement Your Style
A tile roof works nicely with many styles of homes popular in South Florida. Whether you have Mission, Italian or Mediterranean architecture, there is a perfect shape and color for your home. Tile roofing comes in a variety of profiles like traditional S-shaped and barrel. But they can also be manufactured to mimic other roofing materials.
Because the manufacturing process is more advanced, you can now have more than just the classic orange half-pipe look. Colors can be mixed in during the creation to give you nearly any hue imaginable. And manufacturers suggest that the color should last for around 50 years.
Beat the Heat
One of the perks of living in Florida is the amount of sunshine and beautiful days. But with all that sunshine, you need a great rooftop to help insulate your house. A tile roof is thick and heavy, which makes it difficult for heat to pass through. Although there may be a higher initial investment when you have it installed, it will help lower your utility bills throughout the year.
Because tiles weigh more than shingles and metal, some homes require additional structural support. We can inspect your home to see if the clay type is a possibility. If additional support is required but out of your budget, we can help you find another material that mimics the look you are seeking. Concrete tiles are a great and less heavy alternative.
Professional Tile Roof Installation
A tile roof must be installed carefully by an experienced professional and maintained over the course of its life. When done right, it will not leak and will rarely require repairs. Maintenance should also be done by a professional. Commonly, damage occurs when someone walks carelessly over them and causes cracks. We install a watertight barrier below to protect your home from leaks. If done poorly, you'll be paying for repairs for years to come.

Tile Roofing Repairs and Replacement
Tile roof repair can be difficult work and should be done by a professional. In many cases, cracked units must be replaced. We have extensive resources to help us find a suitable match to your existing installation. If a match cannot be found that you are happy with, we can also take pieces from less visible areas of your rooftop and place them where it counts.
Chances are your clay or concrete surface will long outlast the watertight underlayment and wood beneath it. To repair and replace these materials, we carefully lift them, perform the repairs and reattach. This is delicate work, but with years of experience with residential tile roofs, we've mastered it.
