When considering switching from a flimsy, temporary roofing material, such as asphalt shingles, to an enduring concrete tile roof, you may be wondering if your home’s structure will provide adequate support. Luckily, concrete roof tile manufacturer, Eagle Roofing Products, offers a reimbursement program should your home require a structural inspection.
Generally, homes built within the past 30 years that are constructed in accordance with building codes can withstand the added weight of concrete roof tile. In some cases, however, an engineer may need to be hired to perform a structural inspection and ensure the existing truss system is robust enough to withstand the weight of your new roof.
Eagle’s structural inspection reimbursement program provides you with an excellent return on investment and peace of mind, offering up to $200 when choosing Eagle’s conventional weight tile and up to $400 when choosing lightweight tile. All you have to do is provide us with a copy of your paid engineering invoice once your Eagle concrete tile roof is complete and we will reimburse you up to $400 of the invoice amount, depending upon the tile installed. In addition, your roofing contractor can help you find an engineer with the appropriate experience to inspect your roof’s structure and provide a stamped report of the inspection.
Limitations do apply, so be sure to contact an Eagle Account Representative in your area for more information.
