The roof on my house was originally finished with asphaltic shingles. Because of shoddy initial installation, any time the area experienced significant winds, one could find shingles throughout the neighborhood from various houses. After having replaced shingles at a cost of $750+, I decided to have the entire roof replaced with lightweight Spanish-style clay tiles. The test of time speaks for the quality of the installation. Not only is my roof the best looking in the neighborhood, the tiles have remained sturdily in place. Mike Tocco did a great job on the install, from start to finish.
