Tile Roofs in Kansas City can be a great choice bceause tile not only is resistant to pests but also withstands fire and harsh weather better than other roofing products. But, improper drainage or gutters filled with debris and careless foot traffic can damage roofs of all types, tile included. This is another reason why Brown Roofing recommends annual roof inspections.
Walking on Tile Roofs
Deciding to walk on any roof can be dangerous, but walking on a tile roof almost always will damage tiles if you don’t know the proper methods. Even though tile is one of the most durable roofing products available and hardens with age, deciding to walk on the tile carelessly most likely will cause breakage.
Chimney sweeps, painters, and even roofers should avoid walking on tile roofs unless absolutely necessary. For heavy or continued foot traffic during repairs, Brown Roofing will use sheets of plywood covered underneath with carpet or foam to prevent slippage and distribute weight.
Dealing with Occasional Roof Repairs
The ultimate longevity of a tile roof depends on the complete construction and installation of the roofing system. Many leaks are caused not by tile failure but by damaged or inferior underlayment or flashing. If this occurs, Brown Roofing can remove the roof tiles, fix cause of the problem, and then replace the tiles intact.
In the Kansas City area, tiles sometimes break – from falling tree limbs or inexperienced handymen on the roof. You should not ignore broken tiles, as they can compromise the roof’s waterproof surface and damage the underlayment by repeated exposure to sun and rain. Roofers familiar with tile can replace or repair roof tiles quickly, and Brown Roofing can help match the color and style of the original tiles.
