Roofing with Tiles

Beautiful, tile roofs have been around for centuries. More and more Florida homeowners are choosing tile roofs to add upscale beauty to their homes and increase property values. In comparison to shingle roofs, tile roofs are fire-proof, more hurricane resistant, and more energy-efficient.
Cement and concrete tile performs well in our climate, as they will not burn, rot or curl—and they reflect solar light to save on energy costs. Clay tile adds unequaled character and architectural authenticity to both modern and historic homes. Even though the tiles are porous, water drains well and tile roofs can withstand harsh weather elements, becoming harder and more durable over time.
Tile roofs require some degree of maintenance about every three years to clean mold and mildew and inspect the roof for breaks that can cause water leaks. In the past, tile roofs had an underlayment of asphalt felt that tended to expand, contract and become brittle in extreme weather conditions, leading to cracks and leaks. Tree branches, children’s toys, and house settling can be other sources of cracks that can cause leaks.
