It’s hard to believe it’s been almost two and a half years now since we launched our Tile Flashing System. The innovative solution was engineered specifically as an unparalleled solution to those wonky tile hooks. The overwhelming response from the industry told me what I already knew – our Engineering and R&D teams are spot-on in not only being aware of voids in the marketplace, but also in knowing how to create a “better mousetrap” that installers will enjoy using. The easy, hassle-free design eliminates the need to drill, cut, grind or replace tiles because the flashing itself replaces a complete tile.
Available in 3 profiles for flat, S and W tile roofs, the system utilizes multiple fastener holes in the base plate, which allows for attachment into the rafter regardless of the alignment of the flashing.
If that wasn’t enough to make these systems over the top, we also employed our patented, watertight compression technology, so you know you’re installing a quality product that’s been proven to do exactly what we say it will do.

Flash forward to this summer, the summer of 2016. We know that tile hooks are still being used by many installers, and are being stocked by many distributors. But the fact remains that it’s been difficult, at best, to attach them in a way that will create a watertight barrier, and ultimately (our #1 goal), to maintain the integrity of the roof.
Enter our Engineering team….their thought was, “why not create a flashing that can be used in place of a roof tile, directly over 3rd party tile hooks?”
Well, that’s where our newest product, the Tile Hook Flashing comes into play.
For use with 3rd party tile hooks, this flashing also replaces a complete tile and eliminates the need for extra work grinding, replacing, drilling and grinding tiles.
Let’s be honest, the less time you need to spend on the roof, the better.
This flashing is also available in 3 profiles for flat, S and W tile roofs, and is available in either mill finish or sierra tan. With extremely reasonable pricing, and a super easy installation, it truly can’t be beat.
Come see us, and the Tile Hook Flashing at SPI booth #3071 next month, as well as all the leading-edge products in our line-up.
There’s a reason the top installers in the industry rely on us.
If you’d like to see it in person, just let us know what tile profile, and we’ll send you a sample.
