No matter what your tile roofing needs are, we've got you covered.
Tile roofs are a very popular roofing material in central Florida. Many people like the look of tile and the durability of the material.
Tile roofs definitely give a particular look to a house or building. Usually tiles come in orange or brown, but they are also manufactured in other colors, including blue and green and gray.
Many people believe that there is only one kind of tile but this is not the case.
Different Styles and Types of Tile Roofing:
There are actually multiple kinds of tile, including concrete, clay, Spanish, slate, and synthetic.
Concrete roof tiles tend to be thick (up to an inch) and very heavy. Roofs require particular engineering to bear the weight of concrete tile. Typically when a building is newly constructed with the plan of installing concrete roof tile, walls, trusses and beams are specially constructed with that plan in mind. Replacing another roofing material with concrete roof tiles first requires an assessment to determine if the building is able to bear the load.
Clay--or terra-cotta--tiles are one of the oldest forms of tile roofing. Clay tiles have been used for centuries all around the world. Terra-cotta roof tiles give a uniform, crisp look to any roof.
Even among clay tiles there is a variety. When you look at the shape of clay tiles, you will see that profiles vary. There are low-arch barrels and high-arch barrels. Some tile designs have a straight side edge; some have an indentation under the bottom edge to give more depth and texture to the appearance of the roof.
There's also variety in the thickness of the clay. The choice of thickness is usually determined by personal preference. Our representative will help you select which particular kind of clay tile is most suitable for your structure and that falls within the constraints of your budget.
Spanish tiles give a home or building a classic Mediterranean look. Customers will often choose Spanish roof tile when they're trying to achieve an old world rustic charm to their property.
Spanish roof tiles also come in a wide variety variety of color. Typically the choice is orange or brown, but as mentioned above in the clay roofing section, Spanish tiles also come in various colors including green, orange, blue and gray.
Solar roof tiles are a trending version of tile roofs. Solar roof tiles are environmentally responsible because they harness the energy of the sun. These are growing in popularity and are a viable intelligent roofing option.
Slate tiles are made of slate, which is similar to stone. These tiles are heavy and typically flat. Slate is usually gray or black.
Synthetic roof tiles are usually flat and fairly durable. They are lightweight and therefore a great choice for roof replacement without need for professional assessment of weight-bearing ability of the substructure. They also come in a variety of colors.
