Why Choose a Tile Roof?
For thousands of years Tile has been the go-to roofing system in civilizations across the world. Important buildings, churches, and landmarks have been roofed with tile for ages because builders know their durability, beauty, and strength. From the glazed terra cotta tiles of ancient China to the Spanish barrel tiles that adorned the presidios and missions of Texas, these roofing systems are everywhere, and for good reason.
In Texas the primary reason for roof leaks is damage from hail and windstorms. Due to the strength of clay and concrete tile roofs they can withstand these storms at a much higher rate than shingle roofs. Concrete tiles are considered impact resistant meaning they can withstand hail stones up to 2” in size and for most home and business owners this will get you a significant discount on your property insurance. Likewise, if individual tiles on a roof are broken by hail or wind, they generally can be replaced without compromising the roof as whole. That is why most tile roofs have warranties in excess of 50 years and why the average lifespan of a tile roof is 75 years. When it comes to having the strongest roof possible a tile roof is a great choice.
Most tile roofs are ASTM Class A roof coverings meaning the highest level of fire resistance. As well as resisting any fire starting on the roof, from a lightning strike for example, Tile roofs do not burn well and thus do not contribute fuel to an already existing structure fire. The Class A rating offers an important peace of mind for anyone going to sleep with a tile roof over their head.
Have you ever been in the attic of a San Antonio home in July? It is not a pleasant experience. While most asphalt shingle roofs will contribute to heating up your attic, a tile roof does the opposite. Concrete tile roofs are naturally a solar reflective product and do not absorb a significant amount of solar energy. Likewise, due to their size and density, the heat they do absorb throughout the day is stored in the tiles and not transferred into the attic as much as other products. All of this, combined with the natural ventilation the occurs with individually installed and overlapping tiles, creates a very energy efficient roofing system that will save you money on electricity and keep your home or business cool in the hot summer months.
Tile roofing is the original “green” building product. The average Texas shingle roof is replaced every 6-10 years due to hail or wind damage whereas the average tile roof lasts 75 years. Not only does the durability of a tile roof makes it a sustainable product but also it is 100% recyclable. Whether clay, concrete, sand cast, or glazed a tile roof will always be a sustainable, green, energy efficient product choice for your property.
I’ve used Presidio many times over the past 4 yrs. I dealt directly with Jacob and his team. They’ve fixed roofing, gutters, new window frames and siding along with painting. I first talked with Jacob 4 yrs ago. He was extremely helpful after hail damaged our roof and gutters. He was always available and we found him very honest and willing to work with us and our insurance carrier. He gave us nonsense quotes and was available for all my wife’s questions! When we agreed on price and materials, Jacob and his team came when they said they would and conducted themselves admirably. The job was done on time and cleanup made it look like they were never there! At the time of our roof install, his team discovered other issues that needed to addressed on our home. Again, I got honest quotes and workers that showed up and did highly professional work. I’ve referred Presidio to any of my friends needing roof repairs and home improvements. I endorse them highly!!! Jacob Lehman was absolutely great! My husband and I wanted to put an offer in a house and our realtor recommended him to check the roof. He was out there really quick and gave some good feedback. After moving into this new house, we wanted to get gutters installed. Jacob was really responsive and attentive to detail making sure we knew what to expect and help us make our choice on color. He also added installation of leaf guards to the contract, which we knew would be so helpful for maintenance! Overall I am really happy with his work and we will keep in touch for any future work we might need. Nick and Clay at Presidio were extremely professional, upfront, and diligent to work with while replacing several roofs on my property. They are some of the most knowledgeable people in their trade. If you are looking for a no hassle, clear and concise, and timely repair call Presidio! Thank you for all your help! This review is for Jacob Lehman and his team. We replaced our roof twice due to hail storms in the last 7 years or so. The first roofing company disappeared shortly after completing the job. Presido completed our second replacement, did a great job and they are still here.Crews were fast and efficient, cleaning after themselves and Jacob was great in working with us and the insurance company. I have since had Jacob's crew inspect the roof on the house we recently purchased and will have them replace the roof on a detached structure in my back yard.If you have any questions about roofs or potential damage to them be sure to call Jacob. Great quality folks! First class work!! Presidio Roofing replaced our roof on two of our homes after a bad hail storm. We looked up 3 roofing companies, got quotes, and checked all three company reviews. Their pricing was in line with the other 2 companies that we got quotes from and we decided on PR. Once we agreed on PR, Robbie walked us step by step with the process and let us know what to expect each day of the roofing operation. Robbie ensured that we were satisfied with the work being done and that the workers were working in a professional manner. We never had to question if the workers were going to show up and if the job was going to be delayed. We were so happy with the workers professionalism and how the open communication Robbie/Presidio Roofing were throughout the process on both homes we contracted them with. I highly recommend them. Give Robbie and Presidio Roofing for your next roofing project. Presidio replaced my roof after a massive hail storm.

Thank you to the team at Presidio for great service and job well done!CR- When my roof was in burned, there was almost no doubt as to whom I should contact. I looked initially through my Filofax, but every suitable candidate was local, and I was after international expertise. It was then I remembered, the difficult to pronounce: Presidio.A short call call later and I realised that, living in the UK, the people of Presidio are not at all grumpy and only circa 12% drowsy, when answering my call at 2am. Positive.Upon explaining that my roof was in London, England, Roberto and I came to a gentleman’s agreement, based on his cowboy lineage and mine as a London Dandy. It was agreeable to all parties that Roberto would navigate the pond and undertake the work: no fix - no fee.Snakes alive what a jolly!You can imagine my embarrassment, and Roberto’s face when, upon inspecting my roof, he informed me that Presidio could not undertake any work to repair the burned roof of my mouth!How we laughed!5 stars. Would recommend. Knowledgeable professionals, excellent work, fast response These guys are the only people I now trust to take care of my roof after the great job they did on my property. A+++ recommendation. They went out of their way to ensure I got the best new roof for the absolute best value.

Types of Tile Roofing Systems
When you are choosing what kind of tile roof to have installed on your home or business the options can be confusing. As the best tile roofing contractor in San Antonio, we are well-versed in helping clients make the right product selections for their property. A tile roof installation is a significant investment in the value and longevity of your home, and we want to help you make the perfect choice.
The most common tile styles or “profiles” in Texas are Spanish (barrel), curved (w profile), and flat tiles. Depending on certain characteristics of your roof each type of tile will have advantages and disadvantages. For example, a colonial style home in Alamo Heights might lend itself to a more northern European style flat tile whereas a hacienda style home in the Dominion is likely needing a Spanish style barrel tile. Your Presidio Project manager will help guide you through which is best for you.
In general, you will be choosing between two categories of tile material – Clay or Concrete. Within these categories there are sub-categories such as sand cast and terra cotta but the differences between the two categories are simple.
Clay Tiles are generally hand formed, baked tiles, that are lighter, more easily breakable, and more earthen in appearance.
Concrete tiles are heavier, more durable, and more commonly used in construction today. A concrete tile will generally hold up longer to the elements, especially hail and wind, which is particularly relevant here in Texas.
At Presidio roofing we have installed tile roofs from nearly every manufacturer on the market. The most common tile roof brands you will see in San Antonio are:
- Westlake (acquired Boral)
- Clay Mex
- Santa Fe Tile
Because tile roofing is used world-wide you will often see tiles shipped into Texas from other countries for specific projects. It is not uncommon to see tiles such as Tejas Borja from Spain or Umbelino Monteiro from Portugal on custom homes in San Antonio.

Cost of a Tile Roofing System
Simply put there is no way to accurately give a standard price for any roofing product, let alone something as unique as a tile roof. It is important that a project manager carefully inspects your roof and gathers all the necessary information to provide an accurate bid. A tile roof replacement will cost somewhere between $12-$30 a square foot but that price variation is wide and there are many factors that will swing it up or down. Some of these factors include:
- Type of tile. Is it a clay or concrete tile? Is it glazed? Is it a custom tile?
- Type of roof. Is your roof steep or 2 story? Does your roof have a lot of valleys and hips, which means more waste needed?
- Decking. Do we need to replace the wood decking to provide a more suitable nailing surface?
- Flashings. Do you have a lot of wall and chimney flashings that need to be formed? Is a product like Westlake WakeFlex roll flashing going to be used in abundance?
- Manufacturer. A Ludowici tile will generally cost 2-3x more per square foot then a builders grade clay tile.
- Underlayment. Are you going to use a heavy duty ice and water shield underlayment from brands like Grace or Owens Corning or are you sticking with a synthetic felt product?
These are just some of the factors involved in pricing out a tile roof replacement. It is important to understand that anyone giving you a firm fixed price on a tile roof replacement without looking at your roof and reviewing products with you is simply not being honest and the price will likely change significantly as the build progresses. One of our prime goals as the most trusted San Antonio tile roofing company is to give accurate and reliable pricing up front so that there are no surprises as your project advances. We also offer financing options to help you be able to focus on getting the right roof with less worry about immediate cost.
Leaking Tile Roof
Our roofing technicians are experts in finding the source of leaks on tile roofs and providing the most cost effective and expedient path to stopping the leak. We are the best San Antonio tile roofing company when it comes to tile roof inspections and tile roof repairs. Luckily on tile roofs the source of water leaks is often due to just a few issues:
It is extremely important that a tile roof have adequate underlayment. While tile roofs are often considered the top roofing systems, they do need to have a watertight underlayment system. If you have a proper underlayment system, such as a granulated roll roofing or high temp ice and water shield, then a broken tile will never cause a leak. At that point the tiles themselves are the strength and protection for the underlayment and the underlayment is true water proofing barrier. It is extremely important you make sure your tile roofer in San Antonio is not cutting corners on the underlayment. Advantages of an Ice and Water shield underlayment include:
- Seals around the fasteners
- All laps are watertight
- Will not crack or dry out
- Slip resistant surface
The most common cause of leaks on a tile roof is damaged or failing flashings. Because concrete and clay tiles will last generations, often the metal flashings that waterproof your home at places like chimneys and walls, will go bad before the tile does. Over the years products have evolved and there are now flashing products such as Rolled Flashing like WakaFlex that will stand the test of time.
A broken tile is naturally the easiest way for water to get into your attic. Our project managers are adept at spotting broken tiles, whether due to hail, wind, or just age, and providing quick and easy repairs. Likewise, we offer drone inspections so that we can carefully inspect a roof for obvious broken tiles, without needing to walk on the roof and potentially cause additional damages.
Sometimes a leaking tile roof is eligible for a home or business property insurance claim. At Presidio Roofing we have the most qualified tile roofing insurance claim team in San Antonio. Our project managers and office staff are experienced and educated on properly assessing tile roofs for storm related damages. We can help you decide whether it makes sense to file an insurance claim and guide you along that path within the confines of Texas Department of Insurance rules and regulations. While we are not public adjusters we are tile roofing subject matter experts and we have your best interest in mind.
