Without further ado, here are some key things to remember about tile roof repairs.
- You need to be incredibly careful about the ground and people below you if you are attempting to fix roof tiles by yourself. Depending on the damage, pieces of tile can break off and scatter to the ground, posing a risk of injury to anyone passing by your home. Try to be extra vigilant when it really matters.
- When doing something like replacing a broken or missing roof tile, you should always remember to do a thorough check of the underside of the roof as well. It could be the case that there is original damage there that caused the tile to become loose in the first place, so it is essential to fix both problems at once or it will just happen again.
- If after checking the underside, it looks as though you have roof timbers that are damaged or under strain, you need to call a structural engineer for a consultation right away. You can’t afford to underestimate just how serious major structural damage could be to the health of your home, and even if you only noticed it thanks to a dodgy roof tile, it is still essential to get in touch with someone to come and have a proper look.
