How do we install your tile roof?
Zoller Roofing is the roof replacement company Sarasota depends on. We build tile roofs that last for decades in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Venice and Bradenton. Zoller Roofing uses a foam-screw hybrid system to secure concrete roof tiles to the roof. In this system, foam adhesive adheres the tiles more securely to the roof than screws alone. Additionally, using foam instead of screws means there are no holes in the roofing layer under the tile, making your roof more watertight. Concrete roof tiles adhered with foam can help them to withstand winds up to 250 miles per hour. In the Zoller Roofing method of installation, we both screw and use for adhesive to adhere the first two courses of tiles at the eves, providing the most secure protection for your home. The below video shows why in a state like Florida, that is hit yearly by powerful hurricanes, you need to adhere your tiles to your roof deck with more than just screws!

How can you repair a tile roof?
Tile roofs require professional attention to be repaired.
Tile roofs require maintenance, and Zoller Roofing Inc. is the expert to call when you need tile repairs. To maintain the integrity of your roof, you must have cracked or missing tiles replaced. We know that while the tiles are the part of the roof you see, they are not what keeps the water from penetrating into your home. It is the underlayment beneath that keeps water from entering. Cracked or missing tiles can expose this underlayment to sun, and sun exposure will dry out the underlayment, causing it to crack and allow water to enter the structure. This hidden damage is why you should never live with a leak. Call Zoller Roofing to get any leak fixed in a timely manner and save yourself thousands of dollars down the line.

The use of both of these adhesion method at once creates a significant increase in uplift resistance (meaning your tiles will stay on your roof better)!
