Types Of Commercial Roofs We Offer
Designed for Long Term Performance
With over a century of field performance enhancements throughout the world, tile roofing provides the longest track record of performance compared to other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles. Modern engineering design provide natural water shedding and ventilation features, allowing tile to be the primary roof covering in warm and cold climates.
Available in Many Colors and Styles
Gold Key Roofing works with many of the top manufacturers. Roof tiles come in many colors, shapes, and sizes. In fact, with modern innovations, concrete and clay roof tile manufacturers can produce tiles to suit any architectural style, from authentic Spanish and Mediterranean to New England Colonial, historic, or contemporary. Roof tiles can be flat or round, simulate wood shakes, or seek to replicate centuries-old roofing materials. The possibilities are virtually limitless.
Long Lasting Protection
To maintain their long-lasting beauty, the weight of tile is important because it provides enduring protection without developing problems like other roofing materials. Most homes built today are strong enough to support the weight of a tile roof. There are also varieties of lightweight tile offered in certain regions of the country that are ideal for new and re-roofing projects. Tile is fast becoming the re-roofing product of choice due not only to its durability but also to its ease of maintenance. Single tiles are much easier to repair than other roofing materials.
Can Sustain High Winds
Due to its resistance to severe weather, concrete and clay tiles continue to be the preferred roofing material among homeowners in areas with hurricane activity or frequent wind and hail storms like we have here in many parts of Texas. With proper installation, tile roofing is one of a few select roofing systems that is proven to withstand sustained winds of 150 miles per hour.
Clay and concrete tile roofs are one of the most cost-effective choices due to their long lifespan—50 to 100 years or more. Both concrete and clay tile outlast other roofing materials, with manufacturers offering warranties from 50 years to the life of the structure. In fact, in Asia and Europe, many structures with clay roof tiles have remained intact, functional and beautiful for centuries.
Requires Limited Maintenance
All roofing systems require some maintenance, but under normal conditions here in Florida, tile roofs require minimal maintenance. With tile, maintenance is restricted to gutters, protrusion flashings, and venting. With other roofing systems, maintenance may include coating, painting, cleaning, and/or sealing the majority of the roof surface.

“3 Tab Shingle”
You’ll hear asphalt and composition shingles referred to as “three-tab”, because they come in a strip with notches that create what appears to be three separate shingles.
Premium Composition/Asphalt Shingle products are called “architectural” or “dimensional” shingles. These thicker, often laminated shingles-cast shadow lines like a thick wood shake. As you can see in the picture above, the result is a rich, textured appearance rather than the traditional flat surface of standard three-tab shingles.
All asphalt shingles are coated with a layer of mineral granules that protect the shingle from sunlight, add color and, in some cases, help resist algae and fungus growth. Manufacturers can discourage unwanted plant life by adding copper or zincto the granule mix.
We Offer a Wide Selection of Designs and Colors
