Is it Worth Installing Tile Roofing on Your Own?

The internet has granted people access to guides for doing things that you might only think professionals can do. If you're thinking about installing tile roofing on your own, you ought to ask yourself if you're capable of doing the following:

  • Be sure to analyze your roof structure to ensure that it can handle the weight; tile roofs are heavier than more common roofs
  • Make sure that there's no rotting beams or boards in your roof so as to avoid a possible collapse; this also includes reinforcing your roof
  • Ordering enough extra tiles to account for tiles that might get damaged during the roofing process. To be on the safe side, you'll want to order 25-40% of the total amount it would take to cover your whole roof
  • If you live in Sharpsburg, IA, 50862 then you need to make sure that you install the proper underlayment for your region. Depending on how much moisture and humidity your area gets during the year, you may need a different underlayment than what's suggested online
  • Renting a boom lift so that you don't have to carry up those heavy tiles to your roof by hand (that'd take all day)
  • Also renting a dumpster. If you already have an old roof, you'll need to throw out that old material and any new tile that gets damaged from handling
  • Install the furring strips appropriately so that when the tiles overlap, they won't be uneven
  • Research and adhere to regional and local building regulations (also any required permits or inspections)
  • Inspect any hips or ridges in your roof to make sure that tiles don't get blown off

That's all you need to do, really.

You're probably thinking about getting a new roof, but you don't know how to go about it. Should you hire someone or do it yourself?

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.
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'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.
