Is Tile Roof Installation Something I Can Do Myself?

There's always a new way to DIY anything you can think up nowadays. Fixing a roof is more complicated however so ask yourself, could you do the following on your own?

  • Ascertain if the roof structure load capacity can handle the weight of a tile roof (which can be considerable)
  •  fortify the roof structure if necessary, that way it won't collapse from a rotted board or beam
  • 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 enough, depending on your roof type and experience
  • install the proper underlayment for Chula Vista, Texas, you have to know the specific steps and materials which might be different from the tutorials you'd find online, 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 have accidents with (trust us, it happens more often than you'd think, even to us)
  • ensure you properly install the furring strips so that the tiles overlap the correct amount and lay flat and nest properly
  • 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 Home Depot buckets on hand for the next rain or hail storm, just in case you missed something...

That's pretty much it.

Here's the thing, you could attempt to replace your roof yourself (we all understand trying to save a little bit of money), go through the blood, sweat and tears that would result in a roof that MIGHT last you a couple of months, maybe even a year.

Pricing of Tile Roofs

A tile roof can cost 2-3 times the cost of a traditional shingle roof. If you plan to stay in your home for many years and financing is available, it may be worth considering even though moving will make recovering 80% of investment difficult at best. However, only use an experienced installer like Cook Roofing Company who knows what they are doing because using inexperienced installers could lead to issues down the road, which would have been avoidable had someone with experience done it right from inception. You can call Cook Roofing Company at 432-223-0542 to get a professional roofer to assess your roofing situation.

FAQ

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.
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.
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.
