The original concrete tile roof on the Catholic Center of the Diocese of Venice (Florida) had been leaking for years and it was well overdue for a change. Situated in the western part of the state near the Gulf Coast, the area is prone to hurricanes as well as saltwater corrosion—it was clear a metal roof was in order to protect the structure.

Fort Myers contractor Crowther Roofing & Sheet Metal installed nearly 24,000 square feet of Terra Cotta metal tile and flat decks. The barrel tile roofing system provides the look of a classic clay tile roof, sustainability, energy efficiency, and uplift resistance—a critical factor for the location’s wind events.
