Durable Tile Roofs in Florida

Tile roofing is particularly well suited to the weather extremes in the Sarasota and Bradenton area. Tile roofs resist wind damage, fire damage, and insect damage, and perform excellently as an insulator to keep your home cooler in summer.

Both concrete and tile roofs are incredibly durable; properly installed and maintained tile roofs typically last at least 50 years or more. Many tile roofs in Europe have lasted for centuries. A clay or concrete tile roof is an investment that will last for many decades to come.

New Tile Roof Installation Steps

1. Replacing the Underlayment

The Roof's underlayment is the most important part of your roof. It is the layer that must be completely leak proof in order to keep water at bay and prevent any water damage. There are many types of underlayments available but because this is Florida and we are subjected to very hot temperatures as well as occasional hurricanes strength winds, it is crucial that your roof is installed using a product that is designed to combat the elements. At AKVM we only use APOC products. Apoct Products are the industry leading brand. Homeowners have a choice of product to use, we normally suggest either APOC Weather Armor HT3 or Fleece-Top.

2. Installing Metal Flashing

Once the underlayment is installed, the next step is to install metal flashing on valleys and hips of the roof to keep water flowing and not sitting on the surface. The metal flashing goes over the underlayment and under the roof tiles.

3. Roof Battens

For roofs that have a pitch higher than 6/12, we install roof battens. The roof battens sometimes referred to as roof lath, is a layer of strips of solid material, usually wood, which are installed on top of the underlayment layers. The roof battens serve as a fixing point for roofing tiles.

4. Roof Tile Application

Once the roof is tightly covered and secured with the underlayment and flashing, it's time to install the roof tiles. Starting from the eaves and working up to the ridge, we lay and attach each tile one by one to the underlayment. The first two courses of tiles are installed using screws and an adhesive foam. The additional courses of tiles go on with just adhesive foam. In cases where the roof has a pitch of over 6/12, we adhere all the tiles using both screws and foam. Roof tiles act as a durable protective layer for the roofing underlayment. Our tile roof experts are specifically trained to install tile roofs securely and safely. Our tile roofs are under warranty from manufacturer defects and installation.

5. Install Bird Stops

Birds are cute but that doesn't mean you want them living in your roof. Birds can be very distructive to your roof. To protect your investment we install bird stops above the dripedge along the entire perimeter of the roof.
