Why Choose Tile?
Tile Roofs are classic Florida. And even more important than their gorgeous look, tile roofs last longer than other types of roofs. Depending on the quality, a tile roof may last decades longer other roofing types.
A tile roof keeps your home safe and dry by withstanding the harsh Florida weather conditions and it does not deteriorate over time. Additionally, roof tile is fireproof and carries a class-A rating. Finally, a white tile roof is the most energy efficient roof in Florida.
Not only are tile roofs extremely hardy, but they now are available in colors beyond the ultra-popular traditional terra cotta. Concrete roof tiles (and even some clay roof tiles) come in a wide spectrum of colors, ranging from the terra cotta clay red, to colors closer to moss green, driftwood grey, and ocean blue. https://eagleroofing.com/
Zoller Roofing is one of the few local contractors certified by FRSA-TRI Alliance in High Wind Concrete and Clay Tile Installation. This means we have been trained in the most up to date industry practices, installation methods, and the latest code requirements, on how to apply and maintain tile roofs in high wind climates like we have here in Florida.
Zoller Roofing Inc. builds tile roofs that last for decades in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Venice and Bradenton. We use a foam-screw hybrid system to secure tiles to the roof. The foam adhesive adheres the tiles more securely to the roof than screws. Using foam instead of screws means there are no holes in the roofing layer under the tile, making it more watertight. Foaming the tiles can keep them on your roof in winds up to 250 miles per hour. The first two courses of tiles at the eves are both screwed and adhered down with foam adhesive, providing the most secure protection. The below video shows why in a state like Florida, that is hit by hurricanes, you need to adhere your tiles to your roof deck with more than just screws!
Tile Roof Repair
Tile roofs require maintenance, and Zoller Roofing Inc. is an expert in tile repairs. If you are a homeowner, you must have cracked or missing tiles replaced to maintain the integrity of the roof. 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 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.
Eagle Tile Hybrid Roof System
The Eagle Tile Hybrid Roof System is now available through Zoller Roofing. Eagle Tile has introduced a Hybrid Roof System utilizing two fastening methods - a polyurethane roof tile adhesive (Tile Bond) used with mechanical fasteners (screws). 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)!
