In 1981 Custom Tile Roofing Founder Vince Hobson sought to fill a void in the Colorado roofing world by collecting, salvaging and categorizing historic roofing tile around the state. Over the past 30 years, his collection has grown to over 1 million pieces of roof tile from manufacturers dating back to the early 19th century. As the curator of one of the country’s most comprehensive tile roofing inventories, Hobson and Custom Tile Roofing earned a reputation as one of the most knowledgable and trusted sources for tile roofing consultation, installation and restoration.
In 2001 Hobson, along with co-author Melvin Mann, published “Historic and Obsolete Roofing Tile,” an encyclopedic index of roofing tile used by contractors around the world.
Hobson now offers his consulting services via his Roof Tile Guru website, and Custom Tile Roofing continues to provide tile installation, restoration, and identification services across the Front Range of Colorado.
In 2012, Custom Tile Roofing merged with Formula Roofing and Remodeling to provide an even wider array of services. Formula Roofing and Remodeling specializes in residential and commercial roofing, and has extensive experience with storm damage insurance claims. Formula offers all varieties of asphalt roofing installation, including impact resistant and designer shingles, rolled and flat roofing, as well as wood shake repairs. Formula Roofing and Remodeling also provides siding, window, painting, and gutter services.
The experience, knowledge and inventory of Custom Tile Roofing coupled with the versatility and professionalism of Formula Roofing and Remodeling make the combination a perfect fit for a multitude of home improvement and roofing related needs.
