Tile Roofing

Great at fighting the effects of hot weather and salty air, tile roofing offers a beautiful, durable look that can last for many years. Our Sarasota, FL, professional roofers will diligently work to make sure your home’s framing is structurally sound prior to the installation of a tile roof as the weight can take a toll if you’re not careful.

Here are the benefits of a tile roof as well as the various types available.

Top Advantages of Tile Roofing

The biggest bonus to choosing tile roof installation is the overall lasting effect. If cared for over time and placed in the right climate (hello warm Sarasota!), tile roofs can remain in great condition for more than 100 years. This is thanks to their ability to withstand hail, high winds, and even fire.

Though roof repair from our Sarasota roofing contractors may be needed for breakage caused by heavy impact, i.e., during a storm, tile roofs are very durable and never rot or decay. It’s safe to say that they are built to withstand the test of time once installed.

Tile roofing is also:

  • Environmentally friendly (minerals can be recycled when removed)
  • Obtainable in a wide variety of colors and styles
  • Proven to regulate indoor temperatures thanks to heavy thermal mass of tiles

Tile Roofing Material Types & Styles

You can really allow your creativity and design prowess to shine through with tile roofing. With quite a few looks to choose from, our roofers can sit down with you to help find what will best fit your home’s aesthetic.

The first step is to pick a material. More traditionally, tile roofs come in clay or terracotta but they are also available in concrete, slate, composite, wood, and certain metals. If you’re worried about the weight of a tile roof but still like their appearance, we recommend concrete.

Next step would be to select a style, of which there are plenty. All are stunning and offer a unique look that will set your home apart from the rest. Ultimately, it all comes down to what you want.

Some of the most common styles of roofing tiles include:

  • Spanish tiles
  • Scandia tiles
  • Barrel or mission tiles
  • French tiles
  • Flat shake tiles
