Whether you’re replacing an old tile roof or switching over to tile from another material, you should only consider using a local tile roofing company. Tile roofing installation is very different from installing asphalt and should only be done by a trained professional. And, different regions of the country have different weather which means not all tile installations are done the same. This is especially true in Florida where we have hurricanes. Here are a few of the benefits of using a local company for your new tile roof.
You may think that any roofing contractor who has passed the state certification is just as good at installing a roof as any other. However, the state contractor’s exam doesn’t test for all the intricacies of proper tile installation in Clearwater or Tampa. When you look for a local tile roofing company to install your new roof, you should check to see that they’re a member of the Tile Roofing Industry Alliance (former Tile Roofing Institute). Their guidelines and training are specific to different regions, including Florida.
They Know Tile
A roofing company who only does tile a few times a year can make the same or worse mistakes than a tile roofing company from out of state. Tile installation is vastly different from asphalt. In fact, some roofing tiles are screwed in rather than nailed which can be completely new to a non-tile roofer. They may not even have the right tools to properly install the entire roof or the knowledge to lay the flashing to protect your home.
They Can Easily Honor Their Workmanship Warranty
In the aftermath of storms roofers come from all over. Even if you choose an experienced tile roofer for your roof replacement, how fast can they be back to fix a problem? When you choose a local tile roofing company, they can come out for an inspection and repair if there is an issue. An out-of-town company might not be back for weeks or ever.
