Tile Roofs - Lift and Re-Lay
Tile roofs (Terracotta/clay) roofs are beautiful and durable, they are also expensive and heavy andabsorb heat from sunlight. Excessive heat and weight lead to deterioration of the underlayment.
This creates a leak hazard since these roof types are reliant on the underlayment to maintain awatertight condition. To correct this problem, we perform a lift and re-lay repair. Simply put,we remove all the tile, underlayment, flashings, etc. from the roof, down to the wood deck. Afterinspection and needed repairs to the deck, we install a layer of Ice and Watershield underlaymentover the entire deck, including in valleys, along walls and around roof penetrations. Then thesecond layer of synthetic underlayment is applied. The tiles are then re-installed to theiroriginal locations, along with new flashings, valleys, etc. Any broken tile found during theproject are replaced with good, used tile. This repair results in a fully watertight roof that willlast for many years, greatly reducing the need for repeated costly repairs. This will provide thehomeowner with a sense of comfort, in not having to worry about potential leaking every time it
