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.

 

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.

Stucco Siding & Exterior Remodel in Westchester

Originally built in the 1960’s, this Westchester home was updated with new stucco siding, a new roof, high-impact windows, a re-surfaced driveway and new wood fence. The nice horizontal lines from the stucco siding and the new impact windows give the home a clean modern look.

The exterior color scheme was chosen to compliment the new charcoal roof tiles. Below are before & after photos of the exterior remodel with new stucco siding.

Small Bathroom Remodel in Palmetto Bay

New Shower & Vanity

This small bathroom remodel was part of a complete interior remodel in Palmetto Bay. The original bathroom space was poorly divided, creating a cramped space. Rausa Builders Corp. removed unnecessary walls and relocated the vanity, shower and toilet to make better use of the small bathroom space.

The new shower features porcelain wall tile with a mosaic glass tile accent and a frameless sliding glass shower door. The vanity was replaced with a smaller floating vanity and relocated to the center of the bathroom.

The following photos show the original layout and the completed small bathroom remodel:

Cabana Bathroom Remodel in Palmetto Bay

This cabana bathroom remodel in Palmetto Bay was part of a complete interior remodel recently completed by Rausa Builders Corp. The existing bathroom had two partitions separating the vanity, toilet & shower areas that were removed to give the bathroom a more inviting feel.

A floating vanity was installed with a rectangular vessel sink and cultured marble countertop to match the new shower walls. The shower features a frameless clear glass enclosure, linear drain, rain shower and hand shower. The floor tile was replaced with 24x24in. Italian Porcelain Floor Tile. The exterior door was also replaced with an impact-resistant frosted glass door with door casing.

Master Bathroom Remodel in Palmetto Bay

New double vanity with marble countertop

This master bathroom remodel was part of a complete interior remodel Rausa Builders Corp. just completed in Palmetto Bay. The new master bathroom project consisted of relocating the vanity and upgrading it to a double vanity. The original jacuzzi tub was removed and replaced with a full-size shower featuring a frameless glass enclosure, rain shower and hand shower.

Open Kitchen Concept in Palmetto Bay

Completed kitchen with open concept design

Rausa Builders Corp. remodeled this kitchen to an open kitchen concept. The old kitchen had melamine cabinets, a tile countertop and 2 dividing walls (separating the kitchen, dining & living rooms). The new kitchen layout required removing those walls to unite the kitchen and living room into the open concept. Relocation of plumbing and electrical connections was also required to accommodate the location of the new appliances and lighting.

The homeowners decided on new Italian kitchen cabinets with wood grain base cabinets and high-gloss white wall cabinets. The cabinets were accented with a 3cm solid white Quartz countertop, a mosaic glass backsplash and a stainless steel toe kick (bottom part of cabinet). A Blanco® Under-mount Sink was installed with a Delta® Touch Faucet.

The lighting was an important factor in bringing together this open kitchen concept. The interior lighting upgrade included recessed light fixtures and under cabinet lighting. Increased natural lighting was also part of the equation and this was improved by replacing a solid exterior door with a French Door and Side-Light.

Floating Vanity & Master Bathroom Remodel

Double floating vanity with quartz countertop & porcelain wall planks

The owners of this home in Miami Lakes wanted to remodel their master bathroom with a floating vanity and a frameless shower enclosure. Rausa Builders Corp. removed an interior wall separating the vanity area from the water closet (toilet & shower), converting the bathroom to a more open space.

We then installed porcelain & travertine tile on the bathroom walls and travertine tile on the floor. A double floating vanity (aka wall-mounted vanity) with a quartz countertop was installed over the porcelain plank wall tiles. The shower features a frameless glass enclosure, a modern linear drain, rain & hand shower heads.

Below are before & after photos of this modern master bathroom remodel.

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.
