Flashing, underlayment and fastening details are not very interesting, but are the key to the longevity of your tile roof. A tile roof is not waterproof, only weather proof. The key to water proofing is what’s underneath. The underlayment systems must be installed using quality materials and experienced mechanics. If a hundred year roof is installed, it should be installed over materials that will also last one hundred years.
This means the use of copper or stainless steel in flashings and fasteners. Underlayment specifications should be those best fitting the area and climate. We have removed tile on many structures built at the turn-of-century, only to replace the underlayment and certain areas of the flashing and then reinstalling the same tile. These roofs are good for another 100 years. No matter how good or expensive the tile, it is only as good as what is underneath.
Our experienced staff can help design your roof by combining rich colors, shapes, and textures to create the architectural results you desire. Our extensive inventory provides the client with immediate availability on many products. Our staff will ensure promptness on orders that are custom produced for your project.
