A tile roof is not only beautiful, but they’re environmentally friendly, and they are made to stand the test of time. Tile roofs also come with some of the longest warranties in the roofing industry. However, this does not mean they are indestructible. But can you repair a tile roof?
The answer is yes, you can repair a tile roof.
Over time tile roofs can break, chip, and wear down due to weather conditions, poor installation, and improper maintenance. When these instances occur, it’s important that a roofing contractor be contacted as soon as possible before the integrity of the whole roof is compromised.
There are certain conditions where it is ok to repair a tiled roof rather than reroof the entire roof or even a section of the roof.
Because each tile is installed individually, it makes for easy repairs. If there is a missing tile, it’s easy to install a new one. It only takes one missing tile to lead to a big problem down the road. Not only that, but tile roofs are beautiful, and a missing tile sticks out like a sore thumb.
Broken or Chipped Tiles
These are another reason to have a tiled roof repaired. This is mainly done for aesthetic reasons. But depending on where they’re broken or chipped, it could cause a leak.
Visible Leak Detected
If you have a leak in your tile roof, it needs to be addressed by a roofing contractor immediately. The leak will only damage your roof further the longer it is left unattended. The moisture in the roof can lead to rot and mold, which can not only damage the roof, but is unhealthy for your family. Luckily like mentioned above, replacing tiles is an easy process. Once the leak is repaired, putting new tiles in place is a breeze for a professional roofing contractor.
