Tile roofs come in numerous colors, styles, and weights. Lightweight tile weighs less than 600 lbs per 100 square feet. This is standard in the industry. If the roof weighs over 600 lbs per 100 square feet, an engineer will need to write a report to substantiate the weight, and the report will need to be approved by the city.
The available colors and styles for tile roofs are too many to list. The look a customer is trying to achieve will determine the type of tile they choose, as well as the price. A standard-weight tile may cost the contractor $65.00 per roofing square, and a high-end tile may cost the contractor up to $800.00 per roofing square.
The underlayment (waterproofing) is the most important aspect of a tile roofing system. It is typically available in the following three options:
Most customers use the two-layer tile guard underlayment. For customers who want the peace of mind provided by a longer lasting roofing system, we can install a modified rubber underlayment. With a modified rubber underlayment, the roofing system will last up to 50 years.
Midwest Roofing has two entire crews dedicated solely to tile roofing installations, and our workmanship meets the highest quality standards.
I was very happy with Midwest Roofing's work. We had scheduled a different company, but when the season got busy they stopped returning our calls. This never happened with Midwest. They maintain good communication, and all of our calls were returned promptly. They were extremely competitive on the pricing. Mark was the supervisor, and he handled everything perfectly . . .
