Does a Tile Roof Have to be Orange?

orange-tile-roofing-Mr.chatchai Piansangsan-10682916_sSo you’ve gotten sold on the benefits of tile roofing and understand why it’s the best roofing type for a Tampa or Clearwater home. You love the long lifespan of a tile roof, and you love how it resists wind, rain, and weather.

There’s just one thing you don’t love: most of the tile roofs you see are orange, and you are definitely not in love with the orange color. Not everyone likes the “Southwest” or “Spanish look” (two more descriptors we hear when people start bringing up their stereotypical notions of what a tile roof looks like). Plenty of people do—or they wouldn’t be so pervasive—but orange is polarizing. You either love orange or you hate it. We’ve met very few people who are indifferent to the color.

If you are one of those people who hates orange with the fire of 1,000 suns, you’re not alone. We actually hear this objection quite often. Fortunately, it’s not something you have to worry about—when it comes to tile roofing, you can have your cake and eat it too. One of the big advantages of a tile roof is you can actually get it made in any color you want.

Popular choices include white, black, and gray, but you’re not limited to those either. More creative souls have asked us for a blue or a green roof, and with tile, we can definitely accommodate your request.

You can actually have a look for yourself. Braas-Monier is one of the tile roofing product providers we use, and they have some gorgeous photos of their tile roof offerings over on their website. Be sure to check out both their clay roof tile line and their concrete roofing tiles. While you’re there, you should also take a moment to read about their Protegon energy efficient roofing tile technology…it’s cutting edge stuff.

We’ll come out, talk to you about all of your options, and give you a detailed estimate with a step-by-step breakdown of all of the work which needs to be done.
