Tile Roof Installations and Tile Replacement
Before a new tile roof can be installed, a thorough inspection of your roofing system must be performed in order to determine whether or not it is structurally capable of supporting the weight of the tiles. If the rooftop is sufficiently underpinned, you installation can proceed. If it is insufficiently underpinned, the ceiling joists and decking boards will need to be reinforced with additional support beams before the new tiles can be installed.
Even if your home is already outfitted with a tile roof that you would like to replace, an inspection must be performed – especially if the tiles are worn, damaged or aged beyond their performance lives. Decking boards can rot and ceiling joists can dry out and crumble. However, most importantly, if you have a tile system that is old enough to be replaced, chances are the substrate supports were not constructed to meet contemporary building codes.
As a professional contracting company, we try to dissuade homeowners from performing their own repairs, especially on a tile roof. Unlike asphalt shingles, the surfaces of natural stone and clay tiles can become very slippery, and as such, very dangerous if you don’t have the proper equipment or training. Additionally, walking on a tile system must be done with great care, because any missteps can lead to further damages that will need to be repaired.
Call our team of technicians to schedule your free inspection for a roof fix if you have noticed any chipped, cracked or missing tiles. Components of a tile roof that become loosened can be very dangerous if they are left unrepaired. A window shutting, a door slamming and even strong rains can send a loosened tile sliding from the rooftop to fall to the ground, which can result in tragic personal injuries and expensive property damages.
The Variety of Materials
Our company installs a variety of tile roof materials, including:
- Natural Stone
Natural Stone has been used as a roofing material for centuries. Slate, blue limestone, green sandstone and black stone are elegant by nature, and they can be used to complement virtually any architectural design. Natural stone is very popular among homeowners who are trying to recreate old-world style.
Concrete and clay tiles are some of the most versatile materials available because they can be formed into a variety of shapes and styles. These two tile roof materials are ideal insulators. They are also fire resistant. Concrete and clay systems will last for a century or even longer, if maintained properly. So if you would like to only have to buy one rooftop in your lifetime, concrete or clay is definitely the choice for you.
Metal tiles are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners looking for environmentally responsible ways to build and protect their homes. Copper and aluminum tiles are lighter than stone, clay and concrete, and therefore, typically do not require any additional structural reinforcement before they are installed. These materials are also rust proof. They are unaffected by extreme temperatures, and when they have fulfilled their 50 to 120 year performance lives, they can be recycled.
