Flat Concrete Roof Tile in Westchester

Installed flat concrete roof tile

Like many South Florida homes, this Westchester roof was last replaced in the early 90’s, after Hurricane Andrew. The homeowners chose a flat concrete roof tile to replace their existing barrel tile. They also opted for the 4503 Sierra Madre tile, a Bel Air profile from Eagle Roofing Products. The charcoal color with black streaks gives the home a modern & sleek look.

Below are before & after photos showing the installation process of flat concrete roof tiles.

 

Red Tile Roof in Coral Springs

Installed double roll roof tile

This Coral Springs home had leaks in multiple areas, including 2 Skylights. Before installing the new red tile roof, the pool screen enclosure needed to be temporarily detached, rotted wood decking and skylights were replaced.

The double roll red tile roof is a concrete roof tile and is the Malibu profile by Eagle Roofing Products, model # 2555 Alhambra. Below are photos showing the roof replacement process in this Coral Springs home.

Concrete Roof Tile: S-Tile

Installed "S" Concrete Roof Tile

This home originally had a 3-Tab Asphalt Shingle Roof which was replaced with an “S” concrete roof tile. This S-Tile is the Capistrano profile by Eagle Roofing Products and the model is 3503 Sierra Madre.

The dark shade of the Sierra Madre roof tile contrasts well against the lighter colors on the exterior walls of the home. The photo gallery below shows the process of installing the new S-Tile Roof as well as a BUR/Flat Roof over the home’s rear patio.

South Florida Roofs Feeling the Rain

The peak of the rain season in South Florida is off to a strong start and our roofs are taking a beating. Consecutive daily rainfall and high winds are typical weather during peak season, which lasts from August through October. South Florida Roofs over 25 years old are most vulnerable during severe weather. New roofs can also succumb to this weather if poorly constructed with a weak spot or damaged by debris, such as fallen tree limbs.

Standing Seam Roof in Palmetto Bay

When the time came to replace their roof, the owners of this Palmetto Bay home decided to upgrade to a galvalume standing seam roof (aka metal roof). The new galvalume roof has a life expectancy of 45 Years, 150% longer than a tile roof. Of course, the cost is about 150% more as well. This project consisted of replacing the pitched and flat roof on the main structure as well as the pitched roof on the detached garage.

Once the old tile was removed and the decking re-nailed to Florida Building Code, a VersaShield® Fire Protection Barrier was installed. Then came the installation of the 24 GA galvalume metal roof giving the main residence & detached garage matching modern roofs.

Below is a gallery showing the installation process of the standing seam roof & flat roof.

REO Roof Replacement in Hollywood

Below are photos of a Real-Estate-Owned (a.k.a. REO) roof replacement project Rausa Builders Corp. completed in Hollywood Florida. Rehabilitating an REO property or investment property requires preserving the property as well as preparing it for re-sale.
A thorough roof inspection showed the shingle portion to be water tight, with a 10+ year life expectancy, while the flat roof had reached it’s end and needed to be replaced.

Decking & Flat Roof Replacement

Cap sheet installation

The homeowners of this property in North Miami postponed their flat roof replacement for too long. This allowed water to penetrate through the roofing paper, causing excessive damage to the underlying decking which required replacement as well.

The gallery below shows before, during and after photos of the roof replacement process. You will also see the new decking installed prior to the 75 Felt and Cap Sheet.
