The Tile Roof
Durable And Long Lasting
Once limited mostly to the southwest United States, tile roofing is now becoming more popular in other parts of the country for its many benefits over asphalt shingles. From the tile underlayment to tile roof leak prevention to the roof tile enjoying a far greater lifespan, more people are looking at tile roofing as a permanent solution for their homes.
The distinctive appearance of tile roofing is certainly one of the main attractions. Colorful and beautifully enhancing the appearance of the home, tile roofing can certainly bring out the best in your home’s appearance. However, there are two considerations about roof tile that have held people back in the past, the initial installation cost and the weight of the tiles themselves that have previously led to reinforcing the roof in order to handle the additional weight.
Today however, tiles come in much lighter weights that do not require additional reinforcement of the roof, meaning that this is no longer a cost consideration for those who are considering using roof tile on their homes. As for the initial installation cost itself, there are other positive considerations to make before making your decision based entirely on your out of pocket expense
Durability – The best asphalt shingle roofs generally last 20 years, less in areas of the country where they are subject to hail damage, intense heat and cold. This means you are looking at replacing your roof two or three times during your life in the home and more frequently after severe storms, especially high winds which can tear out asphalt shingle roofs.
The tile roof is harder and far more resistant to environmental damage and its typical life is around 60 years or more. This means you only will have to install it once during your lifetime in the home, making for savings over the long run. Also, tile is also fireproof and carries a Class A rating.
Insulation : The tile roof has very good insulating properties. The thickness and composition of the tile means that it traps more heat in the winter and keeps the cool in the summer. This means saving money on your electric bill no matter what part of the country that you are in.
Flexibility : Tile roofs have the ability to carry adaptations for cloaked attic vents, hip starters, apexes, bird stops and many other features that make them perfect for adapting to what you want. The very nature of tile means that you can select from dozens of adaptations to make your home look more unique and stand out.
The high quality and durability of roof tile makes it the perfect choice for those who want to only have to install a roof once and enjoy it for a lifetime. From preventing tile roof leak which can damage the interior of your home to being fireproof to being far more resistant to what Mother Nature can throw at it, no wonder more people are selecting tile roofing.
NOTE: Your home or business roof structure need to be build to hold the weight of a tile roof. Unless you know your roof will hold the weight you should not remove a shingle roof and go back with a tile roof

What Is Under My Tile Roof?
The underlayment used under a tile roof can differ from 90LB granulated asphalt rolled roofing to what is called TU-Plus. 90LB granulated asphalt rolled roofing has been used for years and it is what you will find under most older tile roofs.
The TU-Plus is a homogeneous rubberized asphalt waterproofing underlayment fiberglass reinforced, with a high strength polyester fabric on the upper surface, designed specifically for use as a tile underlayment. TU PLUS is designed for use in new construction and re-roof application where tiles may be stacked on rooftops for extended periods of time.
TU PLUS may be exposed for up to 180 days. When you hear about drying in your roof for for a new Tile Roof this is the underlayment most used on new tile roof installs.
Type Of Underlayment
What Holds My Tile Roof On?
Roof tile are installed using nails or screws on some tile with most installed with Tile Bond.
Tile Bond is an adhesive that will hold roof tile down to the roof deck and is stays very strong in strong winds even in a hurricane.
It is Miami Dade county approved and has the Florida building code approval.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A new roof is a big investment and people always have a lot of questions before making any decisions, below are some of the more common ones…
Click on a box below and it will open for more information.
Unless you’re a trained roofing professional, most roofing work shouldn’t be carried out yourself. Also keep in mind that most manufacturers of products used in the roof repair will not warranty those products unless a licensed professional carries out the work. The other thing to keep in mind is that working on a roof can be very dangerous, so is it really worth risking your health in order to save money? JK Johns is family owned and operated, we have been in the roofing business for over 35 years. To get started you can give us a call (352 754-8600)or stop by our office located at 3323 Mustang Dr. in Brooksville, FL. 34604.
To get started just give us a call. We will answer any questions you have. Set up a time to come out and measure your roof and see how much material your roof will need and if there are any special conditions. We will then work up an proposal for your new roof. Today with email we can have your proposal over to you in a timely matter.
You will need a permit for your new roof. Not to worry as we will take care of pulling your permit. In order to pull your permit we will need a Notice Of Commencement (NOC). We will send you an NOC and you will need to fill it out and get it back to us. We take the NOC to the courthouse and file it. The courthouse will give us the proper paper work to take to the permit office and pull your permit. Once we have your permit we can set a date to start your new roof.
There are many steps when re-roofing your home.
- We have a dump trailer dropped off.
- The roofing material will be delivered.
- We remove your existing roof.
- Replace any damaged/rotten wood.
- Re-Nail roof deck to bring up to code.
- Install new underlayment.
- Install new lead boots, GRV roof vents,
- Install new roof shingles.
- If in the contract we will install new ridge venting and skylights, gutter.
- Clean up debris and remove dump trailer.
Since your roof is constantly exposed to the outside elements, it means your roof is going to degrade over time. The rate at which it degrades will depend on a number of factors. These include; the quality of the original materials used and the workmanship, the amount of abuse it has to take from the elements, how well the roof is maintained and the design of the roof. Most roofing contractors will quote around 50 years for a well-built and well-maintained roof, but that can never be guaranteed because of the above factors. Our advice is to always keep your roof well maintained and get regular inspections to make sure it lasts as long as possible.
Depending on what county you live in your roof will get one or two inspections. Some counties require an affidavit stated that the roof deck was re-nailed to bring up to code. All roofs will receive a final roof inspection from the county.
