Zoller Roofing has extensive knowledge and experience in tile roof installation and tile roof repair.
A Zoller Roofing Tile Roof:
Zoller Roofing builds a tile roof that will last for decades. On a tile roof, we install an extra layer of roofing around all skylights, vents and chimneys. These are the first areas to fail on most roofs around the ten to twelve-year mark. This extra protection will make a tile roof last for thirty years, not start leaking after ten. Additionally, Zoller Roofing uses foam adhesive to install tiles instead of using screws. The foam adheres the tiles more securely to the roof than screws, and there are no penetrations in the roofing layer under the tile, making it more watertight.
Why Choose Tile?
Beyond their classic Florida appearance, people often choose tile roofs because they last much longer than shingle or wood shake roofs. Depending on the quality, a tile roof may last decades longer other roofing types.
Homeowners in Florida often prefer the look of traditional terracotta roof tiles, but now concrete roof tiles, and even some clay roof tiles, are available in many different colors. These roof tiles can be replications of shake, wood shingle, and slate, and are available in a wide spectrum of colors, ranging from the terracotta clay red, to colors closer to moss green, driftwood grey, and ocean blue.

Tile roofs perform better under harsh weather conditions than many other roofing materials and do not deteriorate over time. Roof tile is also fireproof and carries a class-A rating. Finally, a white tile roof is the most energy efficient roof in Florida.
Tile Roof Repair
Tile roofs require maintenance. Homeowners must have cracked, or missing tiles replaced to maintain the integrity of the roof. While the tile is the part of the roof you see, this is not what keeps the water from penetrating into your home. It is the underlayment beneath the tile that keeps water from entering. Cracked or missing roof tiles can expose the underlayment to sun, and sun exposure will dry out the underlayment, causing it to crack and allow water to enter the structure.
