Does Your Tile Roof Need to Be Repaired?
While tile roofs are durable, they can still develop problems as they reach the end of their lifespan or after a serious storm. The trouble is that it is not always easy to identify when a tile roof is failing, since its issues sometimes look different from a typical shingled roof.
Never ignore the signs that a tile roof is facing trouble, including:
- Broken or cracked tiles: In addition to looking unattractive, chipped or broken tiles can allow water to seep into the roof, leading to leaks and damage to the roof structure.
- Missing or dislodged tiles: When there are gaps from missing tiles, debris can accumulate on the roof. The weight can cause leaks, as water seeps in between the tiles.
- Damaged flashing: Similar to other roofs, the integrity of a tile roof can be damaged by faulty flashing. The flashing around vents, chimneys, and other areas of the roof can become torn by the wind and severe rain.
The Benefits of Tile Roofing
Tile roofing systems are known for their durability and longevity. With a long lifespan, tiles are capable of resisting extremely high winds, hail, heavy rain, and even snow buildup. In comparison to other materials, tiles may also require minimal maintenance. Mold, mildew, and pests are kept at bay, and tiles can be easily cleaned with a power washer or a mild cleaning solution.
How Long Does a Tile Roof Replacement Take?
The amount of time it takes to perform an entire installation depends on how damaged the original roof was and how large and intricate the building is. Sometimes, only a few tiles can be replaced instead of the entire roof. In other cases, all the cracked or chipped tiles must be removed and another underlayment must be installed before the new tiles are laid down. Then, each tile is secured with nails and hangers to ensure that they are properly anchored to the roof. To prevent water from seeping in, flashing is installed around the edges of the roof and any chimneys or vents. Regardless of the complexity of the project, our experts at Integrity Building are up for the challenge.
