Roof tile repair is best taken care of as soon as it is discovered, because in Orlando Florida, the elements can take a toll on vulnerable roofing systems. Although extremely durable, roof tiles can be susceptible to cracks caused by fallen tree limbs and extreme hot and cold temperature cycles. Carelessly walking on roof tiles can also make them crack. Cracked, broken or missing roof tiles affect the integrity of the roofing system design, making it less effective in protecting your home. Not only do cracked roof tiles make your home look a little shabby, their defect may cause leaks into your home interior. Postponing or neglecting roof tile repair could also allow roof battens and roof rafters to rot. Costly damages can be avoided with prompt roof tile repair by professional roofers like Premier Roofing.
Common roof tile repairs
Without question, the most common cause of leaks in tile roofing is the accumulation of debris on top of the roof tiles, and also collection of debris under the tiles at the placement of flashings. Tile roof installation makes expert use of flashing to divert water. Debris can interfere with the effectiveness of tile roof flashing and underlayment design to create water backup, which can eventually cause water leakage into your home.
Proper repair of flashing in roof valleys, around chimneys and vent pipes and on eaves, is an important aspect of roof tile repair. If flashing repairs are not properly performed, roof battens, roof boards and rafters may also incur damage. If this happens, your seemingly simple roof tile repair project could become a major structural roof repair with interior plastering and painting, as well.
