Clay Tile Roof Florida: Installations and Replacements

Get Estimate

There is a timeless elegance to clay tile roofs as they exude architectural charm and refinement. 

Clay tile roofing is quite common in Florida because of the state’s rich historical past and also a great choice because clay tile roofs can offer excellent insulation and are able to withstand salt air and the extreme weather conditions our beautiful state faces.

Clay roof tile installation requires experience and Solar Prime USA roofers have specialist know-how on the specific patterns and roof requirements to install clay tiles on Florida homes.

As one of the best roofing contractors in Florida, we can inspect your roof, detect any leaks, and replace or install a new clay tile roof. We are fully insured, bonded, and certified and work with insurance companies on damage claims. 

Give us a call now, or contact us online, to schedule an inspection appointment for your 

concrete or clay roof, your asphalt or metal roof, and any type of roof.

Solar Prime USA is a full-service roofing company that is committed to excellence and complete customer satisfaction. You can trust that, when we finish work on your roof, you will have a solid, weatherproof, and beautiful roof that improves your home’s curb appeal and delivers absolute insulation.

What are clay tiles?

Clay tiles are made of ceramic, molded, and glazed into the shape of roof tiles. They are heavy – heavier than shingles – but also sturdier for hailstorms, rainstorms, and hurricanes. 

What are the benefits of clay tiles?


Clay tiles are great insulators. They can take the heat without letting it into the house. Florida experiences hot and humid weather, which can affect your home’s internal temperature. Clay tiles can keep this temperature more comfortable. 

Besides offering comfort, better insulation means lower energy costs. Although clay tiles are more expensive to buy and install, they pay off because you will pay less for electricity and energy in the long run. 

Coastal conditions

Part of Florida’s unique beauty is the fact that it is surrounded by the sea. However, the wind carries salt sprays that slowly corrode materials. 

Clay tiles do not get corroded by salt, even when placed next to the sea. 


As a roofing material, clay tile roofs require minimal maintenance. Just like for every roof, you must clean off debris and you should check once a year for any broken or cracked tiles. Apart from this minimal maintenance, a clay tile roof can last upward of 50 years without any major upkeep. 

Clay tiles come in colors

Terracotta-colored clay tiles are the most common ones. Their timeless elegance highlights your home’s unique architectural design and they stand beautiful against the brightness of the sun. 

If, however, you feel your home is better served by a different color, clay tiles come in many colors. Ask Solar Prime USA for a display of clay tile colors and choose the one that best matches your aesthetic. 

Clay tiles don’t peel or fade

Unlike other roof materials, clay tiles don’t peel or fade. Sometimes, the weather gives them a worn patina that adds charm to your home, but they retain their color and they don’t flake. 

Clay tiles don’t rot

Florida can get very humid, particularly in the summer. You don’t have to fear that your clay tile roof will rot or display humidity and mold problems. Clay, as a material, doesn’t rot and your roof will look impeccable even in the most humid conditions. 

Clay tiles are durable

Clay tiles are durable. You won’t need to replace them for at least 50 years. If a clay tile breaks or cracks, Solar Prime USA will inspect your roof and replace the damaged tiles. 

Clay tiles add value to your home

The elegance, style, and sophistication associated with traditional clay tiles are highly sought after. Homes with such roofs in Florida are more expensive. Homeowners know that clay tile roofs are sturdier and last longer than more common roof materials. 

There is also added curb appeal to a clay tile roof. It brings out gentility, luxury, and something out of the past, which improves the look of most homes.

Solar Prime USA will install or replace your clay tile roof

Clay tile roof replacement requires specialized knowledge. Because clay tiles are heavy, you need special equipment and know-how to lift the tiles, place them on a pattern, and tie them to the roof structure, to ensure a proper tile roof installation.

If you have decided to switch to a clay tile roof, call Solar Prime USA to come and inspect your roof. We pay extra attention to the flashing and underlayment and ensure that your roof structure can safely support the weight of the tiles. 

We work efficiently because we know the weather patterns in Florida. When we take apart your roof and remove the existing materials, we do so quickly so as not to endanger the integrity and insulation of your home during a storm. We then make sure the roof structure is ready and start the laying process. 

Clay tile installation is a painstaking activity. We want the water to flow freely off the clay tiles down the gutters and the tiles should form consistent and identical patterns that are beautiful to look at from the ground. Our roofers also take into consideration vents, chimneys, and skylights when they position their clay tiles. It is an art that requires dedication, patience, and experience.

Solar Prime USA for your Florida home roof

Solar Prime USA is certified, insured, and bonded and we work with insurance companies. Our goal is to give our customers peace of mind and the knowledge that professionals are taking care of one of the most critical components of their homes. 

Roof inspections

We inspect roofs and repair roof leaks. Even though clay tile roofs are solid and robust, it is good to inspect them once per year to check for broken tiles. 

Roof maintenance

Clay tile roofs require minimal maintenance but it’s good to have professionals clean off debris. Clay tiles shouldn’t be stepped on because weight can break or crack them. Our roofers know how to step on your clay tile roof without causing any damage. 

Roof repairs

We can replace broken and cracked tiles, in the same color and texture as the original ones for a uniform look.
