Tile Roofing FAQ

Have questions before reaching out? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions regarding tile roofs.

It depends. You can install tile roofing on your home even if you don’t currently have a tile roof if your rafters and roof structure are rated to support the weight of the tile. Tile weighs about 9 lbs per sq ft so your rafters should be spaced at 16” and sized as 2x12s. You will want to confirm with a structural engineer.

Clay tile has a long world wide history of providing shelter and aesthetics. It has been used for hundreds of years as a roofing material. It provides an old world look and is the most sought after type in places like Montecito, Santa Barbara and anywhere where a Spanish style architecture is desired. Concrete tile is more cost effective but not quite as aesthetic. It comes in flat tile choices, S tile and a 2 piece. It has the same fire ratings as clay.

Average replacement cost including removal of existing roof is approximately $15-20 per square foot in 2023

Average replacement cost including removal of existing roof is approximately $12-$15 per square foot.

The answer is obvious. Wicks Roofing and Solar has been installing Santa Barbara style tile roofs for over 35 years. We acquired Avanti Roofing and since then have acquired Quality roofing employees which have been installing these roofs for decades with generational knowledge passed down.
