The owners of this Coral Gables home had extended the life of their previous roof with a white sealant, but now it was time for a complete roof replacement. The homeowners chose a flat concrete roof tile in grey with light streaks, called Silverado by Crown®. Crown® manufacturers one of the few concrete roof tiles permitted by the by-laws of Coral Gables. The City of Coral Gables has very strict by-laws regarding exterior modifications, including roof replacement.
This 4,600 sq. ft. roof installation was part of a new residential construction project in west Miami-Dade. The homeowners chose a flat concrete roof tile with blended tones of brown and a hint of orange.
The roof tile installed was manufactured by Crown® and is from their textured line of flat concrete roof tiles, Windsor Shake. These are textured roof tiles made to mimic weathered wooden shingles. The clean lines of the flat roof tile combined with the rustic look of the vertical texture streaks give this home a modern yet traditional feel.
A brown drip edge was installed along with brown gutters and downspouts, making the roof “pop” against the light colored walls.
