Waterproof & Repairs to tiled Roofs
Pitched tile Roof
On a tile roof there is not much that can go wrong. It is usually just cracked tiles, cracked and loose ridge tile cement. The valley and flashings can be blocked from debris and the waterproofing might be damaged due to age.

When a roof leaks, it means that water is entering through a couple of areas. The leak could be getting through the actual roofing material or membrane that was used when your roof was installed, or it could be getting in through skylights, chimneys, lead or aluminium vent stacks, roof drains, etc.
If you see dampness or any mould or staining, it does not mean that the leak is directly above. Leaks can develop on one side of your roof and may travel a fair distance before they become visible on the inside. It could also be a direct result of having poor ventilation or air circulation.
As soon as you notice a leak or any symptom of a developing leak, it is in your best interest to have it inspected by a professional to possibly avoid the larger expenses of repairs to both the roof and inside items such as the paint work.

The most important part of any building is the roof.
Your roof not only keeps the weather outside but also protects the structure of your building. There are many methods and materials for building and covering a roof. A roof can be tiled, shingled, cemented or thatched to name a few. And the type of material used will affect the cost as well as the lifespan and maintenance required, as some types of roofs are more sustainable and durable than others.
In order to lengthen the life span of you roof, it is important to attend to problems as they occur, even the smaller issues. If left unattended, the damage to your roof is likely to worsen and this will result in an even greater expense. Such problems that might occur and seem to be minor issues include cracks in the tiles, mislaid shingles and leaking roofs. If these are overlooked, you may end up having to replace the entire roof. Therefore, regular care and maintenance carried out on your roof by a roofing contractor will ensure a longer life and lower costs in the long run.
