Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacement

Think of your roof as a system; a system derived of different types of barriers that work together to protect you and your home from the outside elements. Because your roof plays such a key role, it’s important to have it inspected from the inside out, at the very minimum once a year – especially as it ages or after a severe storm. Below are a few tips that will help you quickly identify the status of your roof and whether or not it might need to be repaired or replaced.

If you have a concrete tile roof, the first thing to note is if you have any broken roof tiles. Concrete roof tiles act as the shell, or the first line of defense, within the roofing system, protecting the underlayment and wood decking that lies beneath. If you notice broken tiles, contact an insured and bonded roofing contractor immediately to have the pieces replaced. Often times, it can be difficult to spot broken tiles from ground level and if they go unnoticed or unfixed, bigger issues within the roofing system may arise. These areas can act as potential points of entry for animals and allow for water to penetrate the underlying layers of the roof, creating water spots on the ceiling, fascia or soffit. If caught early with minimal damage, a simple underlayment or flashing repair in the faulty area will suffice. Other cases that warrant repair for any roof type would be: sagging gutters, pooling water on your roof, damaged soffits, cracked flashing or recent accumulation of rainwater in your attic.

As for roof replacements, this usually depends on the condition of your underlayment. Underlayment serves as a secondary level of protection from deterioration, moisture, and leaks that can directly affect your roof deck. This portion of the roof does have a lifespan, so if you experience problems with multiple or widespread leaks, your roofing contractor may recommend that you replace the entire roofing system. A roof replacement may also be necessary if it has sustained extensive damage from rainstorms, long winters, and heavy winds. Unfortunately, wear and tear is unavoidable. Last, if your roof needs replacing, consider exploring all of the different options of roofing materials available. A concrete tile roof, for instance, is known to significantly increase curb appeal and last the life of the structure compared to the 20 year lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof.

With each part of the roof playing such an important role, it is recommended that you have a licensed, insured and bonded roofing contractor inspect your roof once a year to conduct any necessary maintenance or assessments. Some roofing companies offer a free roof inspection which may reveal previous storm damage that could be covered by your homeowners insurance, while others may offer financing for repairs not covered by insurance. It is suggested that you get 2-3 estimates that include the scope of work, pictures of all areas and damage, as well as a full breakdown of charges.  Most importantly, do not try to fix it yourself. When it comes to maintaining your investment, the smartest money you spend could be on a roof repair or replacement.

Concrete Roof Tiles – An Ideal Roofing Product for Commercial Buildings

Make a lasting first impression with any commercial structure by using concrete roof tiles! Residential buildings have a different appeal than commercial. Department stores, entertainment facilities and community structures all have continuous traffic throughout the day creating a never-ending amount of first impressions. The exterior of a commercial structure should draw one’s eye and strike conversation.

While commercial buildings generally have relatively flat or low sloped roofs, as opposed to residential roofs, which are typically conventional or steeply sloped; many commercial buildings are being updated from bland to a more contemporary feel. More and more commercial structures are opting for steeper sloped roofs with concrete roof tile as they tend to be more visually pleasing – elevating the overall curb appeal of their community, while having a roof that lasts 20 – 40 years longer than traditional roofing materials. Concrete tile roofs are an ideal alternative to roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles, for these commercial structures, due to their unsurpassed curb appeal, durability traits and energy efficiency benefits.

Today, materials like concrete roof tiles are gaining more and more popularity with commercial new construction and reroofing structures. When using concrete roof tiles there is an added advantage of repelling the sun rays while keeping the inside of the structure cool, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs and comfortable guests. Concrete roof tiles also last a lifetime and offer a distinctive style for those looking to create a specific exterior appearance.

At Eagle Roofing Products we have multiple profiles to choose from. Initially, concrete roof tiles were known for being red and round, and took the design world by storm in the Sunbelt. Now, concrete roof tiles come in a variety of profile styles from high and medium barrel shaped profiles to our exquisite flat profile. For a Spanish look, S-tile or barrel tile profiles are perfect for commercial buildings that are going for a Spanish or Mediterranean finish, which many obsess and crave for- producing a higher curb appeal and a visually striking appearance.

When browsing through our collection online, one can see the differences between each of our profiles. Our flat profile variety gives designers an option of a rustic or modern feel. The Golden Eagle profile has a smooth centerpiece and gorgeous raking details on each side, making this the perfect profile for a barn-inspired or rustic exterior. Those looking for a more modern feel with clean lines and a smooth surface can decide between our Bel Air or Double Eagle profile.

The options are endless when it comes to concrete roof tile and commercial buildings. All you have to do is imagine and it is possible! For more information on Eagle Roofing Products, our products or vast color offering, visit: http://eagleroofing.com/about-us/team-eagle/sales-teams/

Eagle Platinum Tile

Here at Eagle Roofing Products, we are passionate about what we do and what we create. We stand behind our products and always stay on top of the trends, creating concrete roof tiles and products that are sure to amaze.

One might ask, “How can you make an already outstanding product even better?” Well, through our partnership with Industrial Nanotech (a global nanoscience solutions research and development leader) we are now offering a moisture-resistant roof tile that is not only energy efficient but ensures lasting beauty and curb appeal.

How does this product work? This innovative technology is powered by a dual-purpose, deep penetrating clear coating providing the perfect balance of energy efficiency and lasting beauty to our already exquisite Eagle concrete tile. Unlike other sealants and coatings that stay on the surface of the tile, when applied, this patented coating seeps deep down into the tile. Not only does Eagle Platinum Tile insulate and reduce heat transfer in and out of the structure home 365 days a year, but studies show that this technology can reduce heating and cooling costs between 20 percent and 40 percent in just a short time.

Why Eagle Roofing Has the Best Options

Eagle Roofing tiles are a great alternative to other options and there are many reasons for this. It’s good to have a bit of background as you’re exploring options so you know how and why to make your choice.

One of the first reasons to consider concrete tiles is because they are very durable and last for many years. The lesser expense makes them a great option for large construction projects and for improving the appearance of a low-budget project. Concrete tiles come in several different styles and colors, which makes them versatile for many different kinds of projects.

The style you choose should reflect the design of the house, to enhance the overall impression. Concrete tile shapes and sizes vary. Eagle Roofing Products has an amazing selection to match anyone’s style and taste. Keep in mind that most concrete tiles will average around 80 to 100 tiles per 100 square feet, depending on the size of the tiles. All concrete tiles must have an underlayment to protect the roof from leaks and other damage. A 19-degree roof pitch is usually required for cement tiles to be effective. It’s important to speak with an Eagle Roofing representative to answer any questions you may have and to hire a licensed contractor to ensure that the roof is installed correctly.

A licensed contractor will make sure your building is capable of handling the heavy weight of the concrete tiles. Your building contractor can help assess the place of concrete tiles in your construction project if you are not sure if your building or home can handle the weight. The average weight for concrete tiles is 950 to 1000 pounds per 100 square feet.

No other concrete roof tile manufacturer offers the range of styles and colors that Eagle offers. Options. Eagle has them, and they give you the ability to differentiate your projects while increasing their value. Eagle has developed regionally specific color lines with the help of professional colorists who understand industry trends.
