Not any roofer or installer can properly take on a tile roof. Even then the differences in technique and workflow for a new house with tile is different from replacing an old tile roof with a new tile roof. Repairs pose difficulties in that leaks can be hard to pinpoint if you have not been experienced on hundreds if not thousands of different tile roofing projects.
Clay may look similar to dyed concrete but the differences can add up for some homeowners. Clay tiles are more durable compared to concrete. A properly installed clay roof can last over 100 years.
Meanwhile, concrete tile is usually expected by manufacturers to last around 50 years. (The underlayment will need to be replaced well before the tiles). Clay tile also age much better in regards to color. Concrete tiles start to fade after a few years, clay tiles will hold their color for much longer.
This aspect of clay tiles helps to add back significant value if the owners want to sell the home down the line. The benefits of installing a clay tile roof on your home does come at a higher cost. A clay tile roof will be more expensive than the majority of roofs you could put on your home. Only real slate tile and some specialty metal roofs will carry a larger price tag..

I want to thank Southern Coatings for doing a fantastic job on my new roof for my preschool in Boca Raton. They were very professional to deal with and they worked around my business hours to get the job done in a very fast manor. I would recommend them to use for any roofing needs.
