Tile Roof Contractors

Tile Roof Contractors

Not all tile roof contractors are the equal. Some will have installed countless tile roofs over the years and some are relatively novel. Though tile roofs have been around for thousands of years and are known worldwide for their durability and pleasing aesthetics, they are not nearly as popular in the United States as around the Mediterranean, for instance. And in the United States they are much more popular in southern states such as Florida than in the colder northern regions. They are starting to head north, however, in places such as Canada.

Tiles are a different product than other options. Of course, they’re beautiful and distinctive, but they are heavy, with tiles often weighting between six and eight pounds. The sheer logistics of getting truckloads of these tiles to work-sites then up onto the roof requires proper equipment and expertise.

Angie’s List, an independent and unaffiliated service provider, has put together a comprehensive package of what a diligent homeowner should look for when hiring a tile roofing contractor. Their first instruction is to make sure the contractor has worker’s compensation and liability insurance. Some shady dealers will provide lower bids but they are doing so because they have not properly protected their workers and do not have insurance. Angie’s List recommends checking certificates and calling insurance companies for validation. This eliminates the fly-by-night operator and the so-called “storm chasers,” those individuals who are trying to make a quick buck after Mother Nature throws a tantrum.

Angie’s List advises homeowners to hire a local roofing contractor. Local businesses have a stake in their community and nothing advertises like word of mouth. Whereas an out-of-state business may be a fine company, they are not worried about their reputation like someone who works and lives in that community. Numerous homeowners have been stuck with useless warranties after their non-local company moved or simply vanished. If the company is not immediately local, find out how long they’ve been in business. After they’re finished, remember that a company in the area will have to travel only a short distance to address problems where someone far away will have to make a larger commute and is therefore less likely to show as promptly, if at all.

Price is not the sole determinant of which to hire tile  roof  contractors. Guys working out of a pickup truck with no insurance will have lower overhead costs, but you get what you pay for and usually end up with bigger headaches and bigger repair bills. Never sign a “letter of intent” for fly-by-nighters and storm chasers. Once you get a quote from an established, local and reputable company, find out the crew size, how long the job will take, and pay when you are satisfied upon completion. Finally, evaluate the communication level of the company. Did they return calls, send requested documentation, did they follow through on what they said they would do? When you find the right company, hire them and enjoy your new, professionally installed roof! Always check the BBB when hiring tile roofing contractors

My Florida Roofing was phenomenal, always on time and detail oriented. Very knowledgeable on the different types of roofs and options. Felix and Maria, picked up the phone immediately and always answered my questions. The owner Rene was on site frequently looking over the job. They were also the best priced and were even recommended by other roofing companies. Very happy with the outcome.

Having my roof done by My Florida Roofing has been nothing less than an excellent experience. The entire team has been super professional and attentive from the beginning. From the office team who handles the paperwork/permits and customer service and quickly sets up appointments; to Felix, our very knowledgeable and courteous sales rep, who was in constant contact throughout the project time, to give us updates and check up on us; to the installers who did an amazing job; to the owner who made sure to personally come and inspect before, during and after the roof was installed. Everyone did an outstanding job. Now let's talk about GOING ABOVE & BEYOND: Maria - the project manager. She was absolutely the person that made the entire process smooth and easy. She was always available to answer any questions and to give me updates (Maria - you are amazing- thank you!) We love our new roof. I am thrilled we decided to use My Florida Roofing. Thank you! I totally recommend this company and to anyone who needs to come by and see our roof we are at Lindsey Lanes - Vero Beach (house will be painted off-white soon, but for now is Yellow) - See photo for reference.
