Is Tile Roof Installation Something I Can Do Myself?

Well, yes, in theory. All you have to do is just:

  • verify that your roof structure load capacity can handle the weight of a tile roof (which can be considerable)
  • fortify the roof structure if necessary, and ensure it's solid and sturdy
  • order enough extra tiles ("waste") to account for cuts, and breakage from handling and accidental hits with the hammer while nailing the tiles to the furring strips. 25-40% should be about right, depending on your roof configuration and your skills
  • install the proper underlayment for Creston, Iowa, which likely differs from what you might see on YouTube, to account for moisture and humidity and temperature range of this region
  • rent a boom lift to get those heavy tiles up to the roof
  • rent a dumpster for the old roofing material and all the tiles you'll drop or break (it happens even to the pros)
  • make sure you properly install the furring strips so that the tiles overlap the correct amount and lay flat and securely nest
  • set up your mortar process if you're using tiles that require mortar
  • make sure you install the proper side wall, end wall, chimney, pipe, vent, and valley flashings
  • conform to local and regional building codes and regulations, including necessary permits and inspections
  • pay special attention to hips and ridges so those tiles don't blow off
  • cut and flash the valleys correctly so water doesn't rush down one side and then back up underneath the tiles on the other side
  • seal up all the ends with "bird stop," which is mortar or other material in the open bottom ends of the tile to keep birds, wasps, and other critters from making homes there
  • have a few Homer buckets on hand for the next thunderstorm, just in case you missed something...

That's pretty much it.

Or you could call the Tile Roof Installation Specialists at Cook Roofing Company and get a new tile roof that comes with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty and the peace of mind that comes with knowing it was installed professionally, and will be fixed if there are any issues. There's a long way from watching it on YouTube, to the first rain on the new roof. And if it's not done correctly, it could cost a lot more to call someone out to fix it than just getting it done right the first time. In case you missed that number, here it is again: 515-305-3253

Whether you plan to stay in your home for a long time, or  sell your home in the near future, you could recover as much as 80% or more of the cost of a new tile roof.

FAQ

What are the disadvantages of tile roofing?

Tile roofs have many advantages, but like most things, they have their disadvantages as well.

The following list is some possible disadvantages to getting tile roofing:

  • High cost. Because of the natural materials used, density, and long life of tile roofing, the average tile roof can cost two to three times more than an asphalt shingle roof.
  • Tile roofs can be a bit difficult to install. If you know what you're doing, you can get away with installing an asphalt roof on your own. But a tile roof, however, requires professional help.
  • Tile roofing is heavy, relatively speaking. You need to make sure that your roofing structure can handle the weight of the tiles or it might be prone to a collapse. If you're replacing a shingle roof with a tile one, you need a consultant to determine if your roof can handle the weight because a tile roof can weigh up to three times an asphalt roof per square.
  • You need a roof with a steep slope in order to install tile roofing.
  • Even if tiles can be incredibly dense, there are also quite brittle. They can tank severe weather well, but a falling object, if large enough, can cause some damage. If your tiles break, the repairs can be expensive.
Does a tile roof keep a house cooler?
Yes, it does. The color and materials of cement or clay tiles reflect the heat from the sun back into the air rather than absorbing it. Tile roofs are meant for warmer climates, and yes, they keep your home cooler.
What kind of tile roofs are there?
It depends on the style of tile roofing you want, but typically tile roofs can be made from concrete, slate, fired clay, terra cotta. There are many styles of tile roofing, including Spanish tiles, French tiles, Mediterranean, Double Roman tiles, and much more.
