We Are Your Experts in Tampa Tile Roofing Systems
Homeowners in the Tampa-St.Pete area enjoy the traditional look, texture and color choices of tile. Arry’s Roofing is the roofing contractor Tampa area residents know who has a long-standing and successful tile roof experience.
Arry’s tile roofing products are a smart choice for homeowners, for three main reasons:
- Beauty: Tiles add to great curb appeal. Plus, you’ll get more styles and colors with tile than you will with other roofing materials.
- Durability: Properly installed tile roofs can withstand rain, snow, wind, and hail. We use Class A fire rated tiles. Our tiles have been tested to resist hail stones up to 2 inches. And tiles are known to help lower energy costs because they reduce heat transfer through air circulating under the tiles. tile roofs require minimal maintenance compared to other roofing materials.
- Affordability: Long term, concrete tile is the most affordable roofing system because it is meant to last for the lifetime of the structure. Other re-roofing materials will require re-roofing at some point. Only clay tile and copper compare to the life expectancy of concrete tile.
Tile roof styles include mission, rounded and flat. Tile roofing systems can be made of concrete, rubber, or clay and are extremely durable. Although there’s little maintenance necessary, the underpinning for your roof must be able to handle the extra weight that tile carries and replacement costs are high.
Clay and concrete tiles have similar physical properties and installation methods. Concrete is typically cheaper to manufacture than clay and it can be made anywhere. Clay tiles must be made near a clay quarry, so additional freight cost can be an issue, and add to the cost of the roof. A well-constructed clay or concrete tile roof should last more than 50 years.
One feature of a tile roofing system from Arry’s Roofing that will benefit Tampa homes directly is its resistance to high winds. Hurricane winds are something Gulf Coast residents are no strangers to. Due to its resistance to severe weather, concrete and clay tiles continue to be the preferred roofing material among homeowners in the Southeast. With proper installation, tile roofing is one of a few select roofing systems that is proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles per hour found in Florida.
Investing in Tile Roofing
