There are three main types of roofing tiles. They are:

Concrete or Cement

Most people in San Diego prefer concrete tile roofs. They are cheaper and can be tuned to mimic any style. The roofing materials’ availability makes them easy to access. Hence, even roofing companies find it easier working on a concrete tile roof than any other roofing material. Different styles like Spanish tile, Mediterranean roof tiles, and Japanese tiles make choosing them more attractive. But they are all great.

Clay or Terracotta

Clay tile roofing uses tiles from molded clay. They are more environmentally friendly than other roofing materials. They are also known for lasting the longest. A clay tile roof can last for more than 100 years. This is one feature that makes clay tiles stand out from other options. Clay tile roofs are commonly found in terracotta color. Some manufacturers make ceramic tiles by adding colored enamel.

Composite tiles

These tiles are made from fiberglass, plastic, rubber, asphalt, and other recycled items. These tiles can be designed to look like clay, wood shake, and slate. One of the biggest advantages of these tiles is their lightweight. They are also less like to break. Hence, you won’t be looking at tile roof repairs soon. The roofing services you hire to install your tiles matter a lot. If installed well, you won’t have to worry about any repairs in the near future.

We couldn't be happier with the job that San Diego County Roofing just did at our house. We needed to have the shingle roof on our house replaced. We initially got several bids. Dylan did the bid for this company. The bids from the different companies all came in at nearly identical prices, and we were impressed that San Diego County Roofing seemed like a serious company who would do a good job. Dylan was great: he was very thorough, and he seemed honest (and never tried to get me to buy anything I didn't need). He was also very professional and easy to reach. When it came time for the actual job, Edgar was the foreman. He was excellent: professional and attentive, and a pleasure to work with. He made clear that a top priority was to make sure that we were satisfied with all aspects of the job. The team at our house worked quickly, and the new roof looks great. In summary, Dylan and Edgar were both exceptional, and I would recommend this company to anyone looking to have similar work done.

I had a leak around my skylight. I got several quotes and all of them were pretty much the same, and very expensive solutions. I then called SDCR and talked to Troy. Troy came to my home and spent quite some time surveying the roof and felt he knew what the problem was. Troy gave me a couple of options. They found the problem repaired it and I saved a lot of money. Cheers!!!

We got 4 estimates to "Lift and Relay" the tiles on our roof. One roofer said our concrete tiles were near the end of their useful life, while all the other roofers contradicted that. Of the estimates Troy's (the co-owner) was the best. He updated me throughout the process, and when he didn't, he apologized. Not a big deal, they were minor items. The crew arrived on time, were polite and professional. One thing we really liked is that they cleaned up everyday when they were done. We really appreciated this, since we have 3 dogs who like to wander around in our backyard. They answered all my questions, finished as scheduled and repainted the replaced wood. The amount of wood that needed replacement was minimal, and they could have charged a lot more, and we wouldn't have known if it was needed or not. Overall, I'd say they are an honest, reliable roofing company. I wanted to wait until after it rained to see if there were any obvious roof problems before submitting this review, well it has rained, and to the untrained eye, everything looks great. I wouldn't hesitate to use San Diego County Roofing again, and I highly recommend them. Thanks Troy and Edgar for a job well done.

Not knowing a lot about roofing, I did a lot of research. There are many stories about being taken advantage of, but it is still difficult to be sure. I came down to four companies from whom to get estimates, based on their websites, reviews, and telephone discussions. We had a tile roof that was 30 years old. I couldn't see how tile could deteriorate much in 100 years, let alone 30. I learned from the research, however, that it wasn't the tile, but what lay beneath. I gave the four my requirements: proven technology, no leaks, met code, able to accommodate a solar system, and work with the solar installation team. Of the four, one came back with an estimate to replace everything, including the tile (I didn't believe I needed to replace that, and it cost about $2,000 more). The others came back with a "lift and re-lay," replace the underlayment, and other work as needed. One proposed a new technology. Since I am trained in some of the relevant technologies, I called the manufacturer and asked some very technical questions, which they answered honestly (to their credit) – I ended up not choosing that bidder. Of the other two, one just offered a cursory estimate. He was late for his appointment – and, after two hours, called to reschedule. Nearing the time of his appointment again, he called and said that because of rain he did not feel safe getting on the roof. I rejected his bid based on his commitment to keeping schedules, his lack of transparency, and customer engagement. The first to respond was San Diego County Roofing (so, everyone else was compared to them, luckily). Dylon, the estimator, was courteous, paid attention to detail, and answered all my questions fully. He went through the attic to check to see if everything was up to code. Dylon got up on the roof to check for potential problems. One such was our chimney. It turns out the code had changed and he had to add in a small charge for a different flashing to accommodate. I asked about working with a solar company. The solar company wanted to take measurements, mark out the panel installation, and have the roofer install stanchions and their flashing, part way through the roofing project. Dylon said no problem. He said that they would also install more, smaller vents (turned out to be very cheap). Dylon was very knowledgeable, took the time necessary for a good estimate, provided a detailed proposal, and, best of all, listened to my requirements and concerns. The virus pandemic occurred about the time we were going to start. The solar people had asked to postpone for a month. SD County Roofing was able to accommodate that request and was more than happy to coordinate directly with the solar company. During the installation, all the workers on the installation team were friendly, courteous, and very respectful of virus precautions. It went quickly and according to the schedule laid out in the proposal. They lifted the tile, checked for rot on wood sheathing and fascia, installed a sheet metal cricket for the chimney to meet code, and installed new low visibility ember resistant vents. They then paused to allow the solar company to make their measurements and deliver the stanchions and flashing. SD County Roofing then installed the stanchions, flashing, and re-laid the tile roof – with extra-long nails to ensure the solar team did not cause the tiles to move during their installation. The team was fast, efficient, and a pleasure to have around. It has only been a month since the installation, but I will report back should any concerns arise. I highly recommend San Diego County Roofing – they were knowledgeable, transparent, willing to answer questions and provide detailed answers, courteous, and took good virus precautions.

Couldn't be happier with choosing SD county roofing. We got quotes from 4 companies and while this wasn't the cheapest quote, it was by far the most professional and considerate of them all. That led us to select Troy, Edgar and Dylan's company for our historic home's roof. What started as a small inquiry into the state of our roof as I suspected we may have a leak, turned into a massive job completely repairing about 1/3 of our roofing frame. It's never fun to get a quote on a project only to tear off the existing roof and see your sub roof completely rotted and useless....BUT Edgar and Troy (owners of the company) walked us through everything that was wrong and worked out some options for us to fix things the right way while keeping costs manageable. These things were not noticeable without pulling the roof off, so keep that in mind as you embark on this journey. The crews used with very friendly, courteous, and respectful of our property. We had a couple of accidents cause a broken window (not due to negligence, just a crazy piece of wood with a mind of it's own) but the guys helped us get the window fixed without any added cost to us. Great company, great work (the roof looks outstanding), great quality. Trust these guys, they won't rip you off or let you down...which is a serious risk in this industry.

Why Choose Tile Roofing San Diego Area?

Tiles are a smart choice if you are into a long-lasting roof. They have been around for thousands of years and endured the test of time. Visit the Roman Colosseum, and you will believe just how durable they are. Here you will find original clay tile has no repair marks. Apart from that, here are other benefits:

Energy Efficient

1. No other roofing materials can replace the benefits of tiles. They are the only materials that have two incredible energy-saving qualities.

2. They carry natural thermal resistance. This comes from the larger cross-sectional areas of the tiles during installation. They don’t just protect you from rain, but from cold and excess heat too.

3. Natural ventilation. Tiles can be installed individually rather than in overlapping styles. They create natural ventilation for thermal barring of heat transfer. Your energy consumption estimate will be greatly reduced.

4. Find a reputable company to install your tiles. They will ensure every part of the roof is well covered to prevent potential leaks. That’s the only way to get the most from these roofs.

Tiles Are a Green Roofing Solution

Raw natural materials like stone and clay don’t deplete our natural resources. These are the same material that makes tiles. Add that to being energy efficient, and you have the greenest roofing solution. And if the job is done right, you won’t have to worry about regular maintenance. However, the roofing company determines the quality of any roofing system. So again, we advise that you choose professional installers.

They Come in Different Styles

You may have seen different tile styles on residential buildings. It’s all part of what makes tiles awesome. The styles include:

Flat tiles

These roofs are laid in regular overlapping rows. Flat tiles usually come from clay but can also be designed from stone, plastic, and solar cells.

Imbrex and Tegula

These are ancient Roman patterns consisting of curved and flat tiles. They make rain channels on the roof.


They come with an S-shaped profile for adjacent interlocking tiles. They make a ridged pattern.

Mission or Barrel

These are semi-cylindrical tiles arranged in alternating columns of concave tiles. This is one style that makes it easy to install solar panels on your roof if you want some.

Interlocking tiles

Similar to Pantiles but with side and too locking. This improves protection from water and wind.
