Tile is an extremely versatile option for commercial roofing, especially when a more decorative and esthetic look is desired. Tile, particularly clay or terracotta, can add an old-world or historic flair to a roof that is very attractive to guests, visitors or clients. With the new shapes, sizes, colors and styles that are available today, commercial buildings can also achieve an extremely modern and updated look. Another bit of good news is that tile also holds its color very well over the years and is not subject to fading.
Damaged or broken roofing tiles should be replaced as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the underlayment from water or exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. Our roofing technicians have very specialized training in properly traversing and repairing tile roofs. In many cases we solve problems with a tile roof that competitors have recommended replacing.
Regular maintenance will help to avoid costly repairs and ultimately extend a roof's lifespan. Unnoticed damage or debris build-up can allow water to penetrate and compromise the structure, roof decking or even the attic space below. Regular maintenance by qualified tile roofers will catch minor problems early and avoid more expensive repairs in the future.
