Can I Install Tile Roofing on My Own?

Nowadays, you can search the internet for a guide to do practically anything. A lot of the times, you can even find a guide to do something you would normally ask for professional help with. Well, if you're thinking about trying to install tiles on your roof, consider the following things you'll need to do:

  • Take the time to make sure that your roof is strong enough to handle the weight of a tile roof (which is often heavier than more common roofs).
  • Be sure to reinforce your roof against a possible collapse (I.e., make sure there aren't any rotting boards or beams).
  • Definitely order extra tiles so that you can account for possibly damaged tiles when you're handling them. It's best to aim for 25-40% of the tile amount you expect for your roof in total.
  • You need to use the appropriate underlayment for Millerton, IA, 50165. Depending on what region you live in, the material recommended in an online guide you found online may not be suitable for your roof. Different temperature ranges, along with varying levels of humidity and moisture, will cause you to use the appropriate materials.
  • If you want the work to be done efficiently, you'll need to rent a boom lift in order to move those heavy tiles up to the roof.
  • You're going to have a lot of material you'll need to throw out in this repair, so you'll probably want to rent a dumpster (for all of the removed tile and possible damaged tiles in the process of the repair).
  • To make sure that tiles won't overlap unevenly, you need to implement the furring strips properly.
  • Of course, you'll need to consider regional building regulations and codes (I.e., the required permits and inspections).
  • If you don't want the tiles to get blown off, you need to be aware of any hips or ridges.

But that's all, really.

Replacing your roof is a huge investment, and nobody wants to make the wrong decision. You could try doing it yourself, but you'll probably end up with a leaky roof that will cost you more in repairs than if you had just called Cook Roofing from the start. Call us today at 515-305-3253 for an obligation-free estimate! We can help finance your deductible. If we're not able to help with financing, we can still get you started on getting your insurance claim process rolling by helping inspect your home and giving advice on how best to go about this process. Once we come out and give you an estimate, there's no pressure; take as much time as you need before making any decisions.

What You Should Know About Tile Roofs

New Mexican adobe houses are iconic, but what about Iowa? If you want to claim that style for your own home, all you need do is call us today at 515-305-3253 so that we can give you the details on tile roofs. A variety of tile roofing styles and colors can be found in this area to complement a home's style. These include old-world, southwest, modern, or country cottage; the type you choose is up to your personal preference! Roof tiles vary from slate clay, concrete, stone, coated steel, and other metal & plastic composites, which create glazed or natural finishes depending on whether uniformity is desired for that look.

Pricing of Tile Roofs

A tile roof can cost 2-3 times the cost of a traditional shingle roof. That said, durable tiles may be your last expense 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, an investment as small as $1200-$1800 per square (100 sq ft) will recover 80% of that when experienced professionals like Cook Roofing Company install it. You can call us today at 515-305-3253 for a free assessment of your roofing situation, a lifetime workmanship warranty, and a quality installation.

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.
What is tile roofing material?
It depends on the style of tile roofing you want, but typically tile roofs can be made from concrete, slate, fired clay, terra cotta.
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.
