I'm in San Remo at Palmira - we have a leak that they are dragging their feet on paying. I've seen several neighbors have new roofs installed in the last year. And these are barrel tile roofs that normally last 25+ years. This place was built in the late 2000s, so I'm assuming its Irma related + maybe a bad job by the builder? (though DiVosta has a great reputation).

Villagewalk was the same builder.

Up here in the Bradenton-Sarasota-Venice-North Port areas, the tile barrell roofs that they said would last 25-30 years are only lasting 15-17 years. The flat tile roofs are lasting longer.

I lived in an older neighborhood in Sarasota County's Palmer Ranch (Deer Creek) for 1 year, and I was seeing lots of roofs being replaced daily as I rode my bike through the neighborhood. I'd go to the real estate web sites to see what year those homes were built, so I know how long they were lasting.

I just had a new home built near the West Villages, and I would only have a flat tile roof. I would have gone with metal, but the HOA wont allow it.

A few years ago, builders were *sold* on the use of a "peel and stick" membrane that got accepted as '"meeting code" bymany Florida counties, to be used under barrel tile or concrete shingles (also fiberglass).


This method and peel and stick technology is totally inferior to the *art* of "hot mopping", which is not taught anymore and takes more time to apply correctly, but this method of using this black hot tar has been successful for DECADES upon decades, but you have to ask for it.


Furthermore, most all of these houses, whether 300k or 2million dollar houses, use also a totally inferior (but now meets code), 7/16 in phenol-glued particleboard for roof decking, which is pure crapola, and if you get a very small leak, these panels delamainate in short order! pure crapola.


My roof decking is great. I specified, 5/8 INCH, 4-ply, tongue and grooved (for interlocking application) C/D PLYWOOD (not that thinner cheap particleboard). The 4-PLY PLYWOOD is far, far more strong in 5/8 inch) The barrel tiles were installed over this type of decking after being "hot mopped".


Materials are everything, but application is paramount.



I know of houses that are 50 years old with barrel tiles using this method, and they have had no leaks, even during extremely bad, rainy weather with high winds!

FLAT tile roofs are fine, but barrels seem to move water to exit channels with more velocity because of the different choices of pitch of the underlaying roof or gable system, but a flat tile can work just fine too, it just depends on the peaks and valleys, and even the gutter system if one is used.


You just want water expelled as quickly in the most volume that you can, while minimizing a wind load/lift event.
