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 Leawood, MO, 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: (417) 386-2127

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 (417) 386-2127 today to explore what a new tile roof might look like on your house today!

How Much Does Tile Roof Installation Cost?

Well, it's not cheap, but you probably suspected that. If you consider that a solid tile roof may be the last roof you ever pay for, and the fact that many of them are durable against hail and wind if they're installed properly, this could be a sensible investment. A new tile roof installation costs an average of $1200-$1800 per 100 square feet ("square") in Leawood, MO, including materials and disposal.

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. Tile roofs greatly increase the curb appeal of a home. This is especially true if you use a professional installer like the specialists at Cook Roofing Company. We will give you a competitive and thorough estimate of the cost of a new tile roof installation. Financing is available.

FAQ

Can one walk on a metal roof?
If installed by roofing experts, most metal panel systems can support your weight when walking on them. However, as with any other roofing system, you have to be careful not to cause damage to your roof due to abrasion. And if you don’t pay particular attention, you can dent the ribs in some roofs by stepping on them.
Will metal roofing increase noise in my home when it rains?
If there is no insulation between the metal roof and the interior, metal roofs can be noisy. This is more common in barns, sheds, and smaller homes in warmer climates. In most modern homes, though, there is enough insulation and sound barrier between the roof and the inside of the house that it dampens the sound. Additional soundproofing can be installed to lessen the sound even more, making it practically silent.
Can I install metal roofing myself, or should I hire roofing experts?
Well, some homeowners (DIY enthusiasts) may feel confident installing metal roofs themselves. However, we recommend that you hire a certified roofing expert to do the installation for you since they have the right tools for the job and experience. Roofing experts will also know the right design to use, and the right roof type your home needs based on your location. Therefore, it is best you leave the work of installing a metal roof to the experts.
