Tile Roofing Systems
Bliss Roofing, Inc. is proud to be one of the original installers of Monier/Boral in the Northwest. We began installing tile in the early 1970’s and over the years have developed expertise in installing concrete tile to suit the Northwest climate. We offer several installation options. In addition to installation per manufacturer’s standard specifications, we offer installation upgrades to silver or gold installation. These upgraded systems come with Bliss Roofing’s extended labor warranties.
There are basically two types of roofing tile; ceramic tile and cement tile. They are formed from colored cement in many patterns to simulate original ceramic tile profiles. Ceramic tiles are made from carefully selected shales and fireclays. They are kiln-fired into a hard, dense, frost-proof tile. Special finishes can be added to the surfaces of the tile, as well as a multitude of glazed colors.
Tile Roof Maintenance
All permanent roof systems require regular maintenance. Leaves and moss that clog sensitive areas can cause unavoidable leaks. In the Northwest, we often contend with several freeze and thaw cycles during winter months. If water gets into a hairline crack and freezes, it will break tile. Often these hairline fractures are not detectable for several years after installation. We also have a moss problem in the Northwest. These maintenance issues are not covered by our installation warranty. Yearly or bi-yearly maintenance programs will help to prevent these problems and are available at Bliss Roofing.
