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 Gravity, 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

What Are The Types of Tile Roof Installation?

Most people think of the traditional red terracotta Spanish barrel style tile roofs, but there are actually many different types of tile roof installations. Materials used range from clay, slate, concrete, metal, stone-coated steel, composite, and even plastic. They come in a number of different profiles, including S-tile, barrel tile, flat, double roll ("Roman"), blocks, and more. Tiles may be glazed, or natural, and come in uniform or varied colors. There are looks, colors, and styles to fit many different styles of homes, whether modern, country cottage, old world, southwest, or vintage. Call Cook Roofing Company at 515-305-3253 today to explore what a new tile roof might look like on your house today!

Is Tile Roof Installation Worth the Cost?

A tile roof  can cost 2 - 3 times the cost of a traditional shingle roof. That said, a durable tile roof may be the last roof you ever pay for, if you plan to stay in your home for a long time, and financing is often available. Even if you're thinking about moving, though, you may recover as much as 80% of your investment in a new tile roof. That investment is an average of $1200-1800 per square (100 square feet) in Gravity, IA, 50848. It's important to use an experienced tile roof installer, though, like Cook Roofing Company, to make sure it's installed correctly and get the most value from it. We offer competitive thorough estimates, quality installation, and a lifetime workmanship warranty.

FAQ

What are the advantages of tile roofing?

Tile roofs have many advantages. Yes, they're more expensive than many other roofs, but they're that way for a reason. Here are some of the positive aspects of tile roofing:

  • Won't decay, unlike wood tiles
  • Regulates temperatures indoors better
  • A wide variety of materials to choose from (like clay, slate, and concrete) along with a variety of colors. You can even pick different styles like medieval or Contemporary European.
  • Great durability. Because of how dense they are and the materials used, tile roofs can last up to 100 years in the right climate. Tile roofs are known to withstand hail, fires, and high winds. A lot of manufactures will offer a 50-year warranty on tile roofing.
  • Tiles are environment-friendly and, because they're made of natural materials, can be recycled.
  • Barely any maintenance involved. Leaks in a tile roof rarely ever happen unless it's because of an extraordinary circumstance.
How long does a tile roof last?
A tile roof in the appropriate climate can last up to 100 years. Most manufacturers will give you a 50-year warranty for tile roofing, so the chances are that once you get a tile roof, you won't have to worry about a replacement for the remainder of your life.
What's better: tile roofs or shingle?
Of course, the answer to this question depends on your preferences. There are many pros to both tile and shingle roofing, but tile roofing is definitely not for everyone. Shingle roofs are the most common roofs in North America because of their low cost and various styles. Tile roofing is much less common because of its high-end price and unique structural requirements. Tile roofing is much denser than shingle roofing, and it requires your roof to be able to handle much more weight; otherwise, it would collapse. Tile is far longer-lasting, however, because the material doesn't deteriorate; in the right weather, a tile roof can last for up to 100 years. The cost of a tile roof can be more than three times as much as a shingle roof, so if the expense is an issue for you, then tiles may not be as suitable as shingles. If you want something low in cost and is low-maintenance, then shingle is probably the better option for you. But, if you want a long-lasting roof with great style, and you don't mind the extra cost, then tile may be better suited.
