What NOT To Do in Tile Roof Repair

Tile roofing is a beautiful and durable addition to your home. A tile roof can easily outlast other types of roofing, but it can be tricky to repair. While many homeowners might try to make repairs on their tile roofs, it’s important to know when to call professionals for help. Here are some of the major “don’ts” when it comes to repairing your tile roof.

Don’t Assume It’s Only What You See

The underlayment is one of the most important structural aspects of your tile roof. If it isn’t up to snuff, you’re going to see problems with leaks, sagging, and broken tiles, among others. Tile roofing that’s exhibiting any of these problems should be inspected by a roofing professional in order to rule out underlayment issues before any repairs are made to the actual roofing tiles.

Don’t Think Small

While there are some easy-to-repair situations when it comes to tile roofing, most repairs affect a much larger area than you might think. Even with the smallest tile roof repairs, you should always consult an experienced Naples roofing repair professional. Small repairs can become a lot bigger when you try to “just replace a tile” or “do a little roof cleaning to see the problem area.” Not only can going on the roof be unsafe, you probably don’t have enough roofing knowledge to diagnose and repair the problem.

Don’t Settle for Subpar Materials

Every material used for the tile roof on your home should be of the highest quality, from the underlayment to the nails, and everything in between. Relying on the wrong contractors for your tile roof repair can seem to make financial sense, given their rock-bottom prices. However, these “roofing companies” are often fly-by-night operations, leaving you with substandard materials and a tile roof that needs repair far sooner than it should.
