Residential Tile Roofs
Few roofing products are as aesthetically appealing and long lasting as tile roofs. The many available styles and colors complement any architectural style and are great for both commercial and residential applications. A tile roof gives your building instant curb appeal, something very few products can claim.
Tile Roof Systems
Unique among roof systems, a tile roof is more than just the type of tile you choose. It relies upon impermeable underlayment. Metal components are central to its functionality and it’s important to confirm they will contribute towards your home’s aesthetic as well. Well-chosen ingredients work together to build a beautiful, long-lasting and dependable roof system.
- Type of Tile (concrete, clay) 1 or 2 piece [not waterproof]
- Metal components (flashing, valley, headwall, – copper, metal, lead)
- Underlayment (important, tile is porous.) Do not use felt– you have to use a watertight barrier.
- Substrate (sturdiness may vary depending on the weight of the tile you pick.)
