Are you looking for replacement tiles to repair or replace your home's roof? Whether you own a historic or antique building, a home in California with Monier tiles, or a modern structure, finding the perfect replacement tiles can be a challenge. Fortunately, there are several options available to help you find the right tiles for your roof. If the tile is an extruded product, MCA can reproduce it with no minimum part requirement or tooling charge. All you need to do is provide a sample piece of the existing antique shingle for MCA's factory to match.
Shingle roofs are built to last a lifetime and are non-combustible, rot and insect resistant, making them an ideal choice for any home design. Concrete tile manufacturer Eagle Roofing Products has not changed its moulds or tile dimensions since the company began operations more than 25 years ago. This means that you can be sure that your replacement tiles will be exactly the same size and profile shape as the existing clay or concrete tiles. Concrete tile roofs are more affordable than clay tiles and have a lifespan comparable to 100 years.
Slate shingles are another great option for roof replacement. They are lighter than clay tiles, making installation easier and safer in the long run if the roof structure loses its durability over time. Slate roofs are made of stone, making them impervious to weather, sun, heat and cold, so you can expect them to last up to 150 years or more. When selecting your next shingle manufacturer, be sure to consider the weight of clay tiles and make sure that your home's existing frame and structure can support a heavier roofing material.
With a truly unique turret system, there is no need for roofing contractors to cut the tiles to fit the shape of a conical roof. Finally, check the weather before scheduling your repair and be sure to use replacement tiles that are exactly the same size and profile shape as the existing clay or concrete tiles. Inspect your roof regularly and replace any cracked or chipped tiles immediately to prevent damage from spreading. Broken or cracked shingles should not be removed from the roof if it is raining or if rain is forecast.
