Clay Tile or Concrete Tile Roofing

Ceramic or concrete tile roofing repair

Tile roofing is an excellent roofing technology. d-7 Roofing’s seasoned professionals can repair concrete or clay tile roofing.

With over a century of proper field performance in other parts of the world, cement tiles give the longest track record of performance compared to other roofing materials such as asphalt shingles. Modern engineering design provides a natural water shedding and ventilation feature which explains why tiles are the primary roof covering in warm and cold climates (even reducing ice damming in cold areas). The higher weight and strength allows tile to meet the anticipated loads of today’s design requirements for all climatic regions.

Underlayment Failure

As with all roofing technologies, there are advantages and disadvantages, as well as typical problems. One of the most common problems with tile roofing is underlayment failure. In some cases, other roofing companies attempting to cut costs, will use roofing felt that is inadequate for the needed typical lifetime of the tiles supported by this base roofing layer. Even when the tile on the roof appears completely satisfactory, felt underlayment that has deteriorated may cause leaks, rendering the roofing system ineffective. d-7 Roofing can repair (or replace as needed) failed roofing underlayment with an adequate base layer to support the life of the tile material above it.

Insufficient Double-flashing

Insufficient double-flashing is another typical shortcoming of improper or inadequate tile roof installations. d-7 Roofing has years of expertise and specific know-how to repair ceramic or concrete tile roofs with inadequate double-flashing.
