Clay & Concrete Tile Roofs
Tile roofs come in many styles, and each has its own preferred applications and beauty. While we typically think of tile roofing as “barrel” tile roofing, tile roofing also is available in more traditional shingle configurations like wood shake. BecausetTile complements everything from traditional to modern architecture, it’s an excellent choice when it comes time to re-roof. Tile commonly appears on Florida Spanish, Mediterranean, Historic, or Contemporary inspired homes.
In addition to their beauty, tile roofs are extremely durable, lasting for centuries in some cases. Whether made of fired clay or concrete, tile roofing when installed properly can last far longer than a traditional shingle roof.
Benefits of Tile Roofing
Durability and Investment
Clay roof tile has been used for centuries worldwide and for good reason. Both clay roof tile and its modern partner, concrete, are not only beautiful but also extremely durable. With proper building design and installation, tile roofs can last 50 to 100 years or more. In fact, in Asia and Europe, many structures with clay roof tiles have remained not simply intact but also functional and beautiful for centuries. They can be used in any climate or region and can withstand the severest weather conditions, including fire, wind, and snow. Therefore, most roof tile manufacturers offer warranties of at least 50 years. It can raise your roof value as much as 50%.
Underlayment and Flashing
Flashing and underlayment are the roof’s foundation. Whether the roof is slate, Spanish clay tile, or Cement tile flashing and underlayment are the keys to the longevity of your roofing system. Because they are generally found in the areas that receive the largest amounts of water, it is very important that these materials be of the highest quality and that the installation be done correctly to protect your warranties and life expectancy.
Tile Roofs hold up well in storms, high winds (up to 150 mph) associated with hurricanes, hail, and heat, all the natural elements we face here in Florida. Because of the continuous growth of tile roofs and demand for green products, tile roof sales are expanding rapidly nationwide and here in our local region.
Tile Roofs fire resistant and they do not rot in wet climates and are not susceptible to destruction by pests.
There is not an asphalt shingle on the market that can match the superior aesthetics of clay and concrete roof tile. Because of the numerous styles, hundreds of colors, and variety of finishes available, you can create a roof to suit virtually any architectural style. Bowles Roofing can assist you in choosing the best solution to make your structure stand out.

Bowles Roofing did a terrific job. They were extremely patient working with us on our decisions and when it was time to go (it's summer and always raining or so it seems) they were on the job and quick. The best part to me was...There were no surprises in the final bill. If you're in need of a new roof, I highly recommend Bowles Roofing.
