Tile Roofs are arguably the most popular choice in South Florida for their gorgeous aesthetic as well as their durability.

Disadvantages of Tile
- Initial investment is more expensive than shingles.
- Tile is significantly heavier and requires your home to be structurally prepared for the weight of tile.
- Tile is great as a solar heat retention device. In the winters it might be good to keep your home insulated; but in Florida, Tile can retain heat and slowly release through the night.
- Tile breakage is an extremely common issue. If you live on a golf course and are subject to flying golf balls your roof is at risk for many problems. Cleaning and maintenance crews might also damage your tile by not walking on it properly. As a result, you might be looking at high repair costs.
