Tile Roofing

Tile Roofing is not a do-it-yourself project. There are many factors that come into play when you are deciding whether tile roofing is right for your home. However in all situations a professional installer like John Hogan Roofing should always be chosen to install your tile roof.

The process includes inspecting your homes roof to determine whether or not the framing of your home will support the additional weight of a tile roof. If your roof can have a tile roof intslalled then the proper underlayment must be chosen. Then the tiles have to be installed properly to ensure they will stay in place especially during high winds, and that the roof will not leak.

When thinking of having a tile roof installed, there are a few factors to think about and consider. First tile roofing weighs substantially more than typical Ashpalt Shingle Roofing. The average Shingle roof can weigh approximately 230 pounds per roofing square. While tile roofing can weigh anywhere from 500 to 1,100 pounds per square. Anywhere from two to four times as much. This is why a structural engineer must inspect your homes roof to ensure it can withstand the weight of a tile roof. Also a tile roof cannot be installed on a home with a peak or pitch lower than 4:12. Tile roofing also is a lot more labor intensive to install, so the cost of labor as well as materials will increase.

Tile Roofing has many benefits to you, the homeowner, and John Hogan Roofing is pleased to assist our Tampa Bay area homeowner’s in making an educated decision on which roof is the right choice for you, so let’s discuss some of the benefits of a tile roof:

    • Tile Roofing is available in many shapes and sizes to match the styling of your Clearwater area home.
    • Roofing Tiles maintain their color much longer than other roofing materials.
    • Tile Roofing is one of a few select roofing systems that can sustain high winds of 150 miles per hour.
