Tile Roofs with KLR
Tile roofs are very popular in South Florida and can be seen on many homes while driving around the area. Tiles come in both concrete and clay material and in wide array of colors and architectural styles. Tile is a beautiful choice for a roofing system with a limited maintenance and a long life span. According to the National Association of Home Builders from a 2007 study concrete tile, clay tile and copper are the only 3 roofing materials that will last a lifetime. Roof tiles are fixed to the roof with nails, normally in parallel rows that overlap one another. The overlap helps to prevent rain water getting under the tiles as well as protects the nail that holds the previous row. In addition there are also Valley, Hip and Ridge tiles for where roof pitches meet and other scenarios.
