The Price to Repair a Tile Roof

 

Tile roofing is aesthetically pleasing and durable, yet there’s always a time when this roofing needs maintenance. Debris, freezing climates, and even the sun can cause damages to the roof. Here’s a detailed look at the price to repair a tile roof.

In some instances, repairs may not even require purchasing new tiles. Rather, your current tiles can just be repaired. Tiles that are damaged have more potential of causing leaking in the home, creating more problems than before. Leaks cause all sorts of water damages to the home, which can be way more expensive than replacing a single tile.

Many factors can impact the cost of repair. One factor is the type of material the tiles are made of. The material of choice for many can be from metal to a lighter weight concrete. Choose whatever material best suits you and looks the best with your home.

Best Roof Types In Arizona When building or renovating a home, Arizona’s hot climate plays a crucial role in selecting the best type of roofing. The roof is one of the more important elements to a building, so choosing the right one is key to your home’s future. Here is a quick look at some of the best roof types in Arizona.

Tile Roofs

As one of the most durable options on the market, tile roofing is very popular in the state of Arizona. Tile roofs are made of several different types of materials, but most commonly constructed with clay. Lighter options are available, as well. Most will lean towards the hard clay because of its durability. The tile roofs will keep your home protected for any sort of water damage. But, perhaps, the best feature of tile roofing is being fireproof. Extreme heat can obviously lead to fires, but your home will always be safe, thanks to your tile roofing selection. Tile roofing also provides excellent insulation, plus there is no limit to the design possibilities with this type of roof.

Polyurethane Spray Foam

While being fireproof and limiting water damage may be the biggest pros to buying tile roofing, easy installation is a big reason why homeowners choose polyurethane spray foam. The easy installation will save you time, and most importantly, money. The roofs are installed by spraying a liquid onto an existing roof, which allows it to expand into a foam. This process allows the liquid (eventual foam) to conform to any roof shape or size. This foam provides great installation, and is energy efficient to boot!

Emulsion Roofing

Emulsion roof coatings are growing in popularity across the valley. These coatings are used to add yet another layer to an already existing roof. Emulsion can expand or contract to cover any amount of surface area required. The benefits include adapting to all weather conditions and providing waterproof coverage. These coatings can both insulate and reflect, meaning it is likely to keep your home comfortable temperature-wise throughout the year.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about choosing an asphalt shingle roof is the truly distinct look it can give your home. Whether it is design or color, there are limitless possibilities when it comes to selecting this type of roofing. If you are stuck choosing between asphalt and tile options, cost could become the deciding factor. Asphalt shingle roofing does costs less than tile roofing. In fact, the cheaper pricing happens to be one of the reasons why asphalt shingles are so popular throughout the desert.

What Are Buttresses

Lots of people have heard the word but do you know what it means? Read on to learn more.

Buttresses

In basic terms it is a support beam on a building most often seen in large projects like cathedrals and were very prevalent in Gothic style architecture. As the name suggests it abuts, supporting the structure and assisting in wall reinforcement so it can support the weight of the roofs you put on top of the building. When buildings are made from heavier materials, the buttress counters the force of the beams that want to push outwards because of the weight on them. The buttress counteracts this by pushing the beams in an inward direction. They are also designed for their good looks and are often ornately designed and carved to match the surrounding architecture.

 

Buttresses In Roofing

Over time buttresses have evolved as new technology has developed and at a similar pace to how roofs have evolved. Buttressing can add beauty to the design of your roof. NExt time you are downtown see the roofs that catch your attention and really compliment the overall appearance of the building. Roofs address the human purpose of designing something where before there was nothing and will stand the test of time.

The average homeowner with a 1,500 square foot roof can look forward to paying around $20,000 for a new tile roof.

Prep Work and Installation Considerations

While lightweight asphalt shingles can be installed on almost any type of roof, while tile can only be installed under particular circumstances.

Roof Pitch

Roof pitch is the rate at which the roof rises from its lowest point to its highest point. When installing a tile roof, they can only be installed on roofs with a pitch between 4 and 12. The roof will not drain sufficiently if the pitch is any lower.

Tile Weight

Tile roofs will also require a reinforced roof deck. For a lot of newer homes, this is less of an issue, but older homes that have a roof deck that maybe has been in place for years, and that may be sagging or have experienced some type of wood rot will need to be entirely replaced before a tile roof can be installed.

Tile Underlayment

A waterproof underlayment, and high-quality plywood, nails, and flashing are all necessary. These materials can add to the final cost of the roof installation. Also, chimneys, solar tubes, and vents in the roof will require watertight flashing.

Removal of Old Roofing

Installing a new tile roof will require the old roof to be removed entirely. You cannot layer tile shingles over an existing material; it has to come off. When the old material is removed, you reveal the roof decking. This will let the roofer see how well the deck can hold the new material structurally, and if the roof deck will need repair, replacement, or additional materials to hold the new tiles.

Weather

While roofs may work in all climates, tile roofs are more difficult and time-consuming to install than a shingle roof. As a result, it’s usually accepted that the roof is installed done during warm, dry weather. The most common time of year for installation on a roof is late summer through the fall, before heavy rains and wind. Being that the roof deck will be exposed for at least a couple hours before installation can start, a low-wind, dry day is essential for proper the roof tile installation.

Average Cost of Different Tile Styles

  • Spanish Tile – $2.00 to $4.00 per square foot.
  • Scandia Tile – $2.00 to $4.00 per square foot.
  • Double Roman – $2.25 to $4.80 per square foot.
  • Flat Shake –$2.29 to $2.49 per square foot.
  • Pantile – Average cost: $2.50 per square foot.
  • Barrel Tile – $3.00 to $6.50 per square foot.
  • French Tile –$3.20 to $3.90 per square foot.
  • Riviera –$3.00 to $5.00 per square foot.

Roofing Labor

Labor and installation on each tile roof may be slightly different from the next. This is due to several factors:

  • What type of material is on the roof and needs to be removed.
  • What condition the roof deck is actually in.
  • If the deck needs to be strengthened to support the weight of the tiles.
  • What material the tile is made of.
  • The installation style of the tile.
  • Edges, roof lines, and intrusions in the roofing (chimneys, skylights, attic fans, etc.).

Therefore, every tile roof installation may slightly differ giving you a very unique roof. Nearly every roof installation will include an inspection, as well as removal of the current material. If the deck needs reinforcement or repair, this is the time to do it, before the installation of the underlayment, which will protect the deck from moisture and provide a surface for the tiles to be installed on. The intrusions will be now flashed and sealed, now the tiles are installed on the roof, followed by the installation of the edge and ridge caps.

Sealing

Some types of tile roofs will need sealing. Some tiles roofs will require resealing 5 to 10 years later; your roofing contractor will let you know if this is necessary. Roof tile sealants usually cost about $20 to $30.

Additional Roofing Costs

There may be some additional costs that come with installing a new tile roof not included in the installation. Some of these include:

  • Cost to clean tiles periodically
  • Sealing and treatment of tiles
  • Tile inspection quotes
  • Chipped or broken tile replacement
  • Out of state tile shipping cost

How Much Does Roof Tile Replacement Cost?

Roof Tile Replacement Cost

Roof tile replacement costs about $21.13 with average prices ranging from $9.75 to $32.50 in the US for 2020 according to HomeAdvisor. This estimate includes the cost of disposal, materials, installation, and underlayment replacement.

Most Expensive Roofing Materials


Roofing materials are always a costly proposition but if you want the best and do not mind paying for it, read on to learn of the some of the best options.

Cedar 

Cedar shingles are a decent option if you’re going for a specific home style. These shake-style roofs are commonly found on Cape Cod, colonial and other historically-styled homes. Cedar shakes are very durable too. The Cedar Shake & Shingles Bureau says average lifespan of cedar shakes and shingles is 30-40 years, depending om climate to installation to storms. Even if the shingle itself lasts that long, however, that doesn’t mean they’ll retain their high-end appearance. Cedar as a roofing material is very susceptible to damage. Wood rots and burns easily, so you need to have cedar shakes specifically treated and installed in order to get them as water- and fire-resistant as possible, but even then they’re still at risk of damage. Plus, compared to the run-of-the-mill asphalt shingle, cedar shakes are up to six times more expensive – not always worth the upkeep costs and energy.

Slate 

Slate is by far the most expensive roofing material on the market. It’s ten times more costly than the average asphalt shingle as it pairs well in Gothic, Tudor, Chateau or other expensively styled, historic-looking homes. Since slate is stone, it’s  fire resistant and, depending on its mining location, can last from 60-200 years. However, stone becomes more brittle and less impact-resistant as it ages, and where the material is mined can have a huge impact on how well it holds up over the years. To find a good quarry, you’ll have to do a lot of research and pay the high price to have it shipped to you. Another issue that typically pops up with slate is slipping — when tiles slip out of place or fall out completely after installation. Low-quality manufacturing techniques, “over-nailing” and walking on the tiles during installation are the most common causes of slipping.

What Are The Parts Of A Roof Called


 

A roof has many parts. In this guide we will break down the different components of a rood so you will be in the know. Read on to learn more.

Shingles

Made from many different materials, they form the outer protection of the roof from the elements and give character to the dwelling.

Joint Covers aka Flashing

Flashing is either rigid or flexible and can be made from plastic, steel or aluminum. It stops water from flowing near the openings of the roof and can be found in the based and valleys of walls, roof vents, chimneys and vents.

Plumbing Vent

Emerging from the roof, this pipe allows air inside the plumbing system that allows wastewater to floe to the sewer or septic system.

Deflector

A cardboard or Styrofoam insert between two roof rafters allowing the free flow of air over the insulation near the soffits. There needs to be a minimum of two inches of space under the decking.

Roof Vents

Enclosed and made of plastic or metal they feature fins and openings making sure the attic is ventilated. The best ones are open on all four sides and rise above roof level producing a suction effect. There also has to be an air inlet at the base of the roof. Frequently made with perforated aluminum, this closes off the lower side of the eaves.

Drip Edge

This is the moulding covering the roof edge and reduces the risk from water.

Underlay Membrane

This protective membrane goes under some or all of the asphalt shingles to prevent water infiltration caused by “ice dams” in winter.

Valley

The “V-cut” angle along the junction of two slopes of a roof.

Decking (or sheathing)

Usually made from 1⁄2-inch plywood, the decking closes and reinforces the roof structure and provides a nailbed for the shingles.

Roof Edge

All the boards running along the edge of the roof or eaves. Also known as a fascia.

Attic

The space under the roof. The attic must be ventilated to protect the roofing system against excessive heat in summer and warm moist air generated by the house in winter.

Saddle

A structure located behind the higher side of a chimney (or similar projections from the roof) to divert rainwater around it.

Ridge

Horizontal line at the top of the roof.
