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 Springfield, Missouri, 65619, 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.

FAQ

Can a metal roof be installed over my old roof?
In most cases, Yes! Metal roofs weigh less than 1.6 pounds per sq. foot. This means that they will rarely overload existing roofs. Metal roofs can be installed over fiberglass or asphalt roofing. The double roofing can even help prevent overheating.
Does it cost more to buy and install a metal roof than a typical roof?
Yes. Metal roofing is considered a premium material, and thus you should expect it to cost more than an asphalt shingle roof. However, in the long-run, it becomes cheaper since it lasts for decades. In addition, your new metal roof will add your home’s resale value and help you save on your energy bills thanks to its reflective effect, which makes it less absorbent of heat.
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.
