Damage to a tiled roof can occur due to a variety of reasons, such as weather events, aging, improper installation, or lack of maintenance. Some common types of damage to tiled roofs include:
- Cracked or broken tiles: This can occur due to weather events such as hail, strong winds, or falling debris. It can also happen due to aging or improper installation.
2. Leaks: This can occur due to cracked or broken tiles, missing tiles, or improper installation. Plants growing on the roof line find their way under the tiles. Leaks can lead to water damage to the roof and the interior of the house.
3. Moss or algae and lichen growth: This can occur due to excess moisture on the roof, lack of sunlight, or lack of maintenance. Moss, algae or lichen growth can damage the tiles and cause them to deteriorate.
4. Ridge capping: The mortar breaks down and falls away, leaving the tiles loose. The wind blows them, or they start to fall out of place, leaving the roof open to water damage or vermin to access the cavity.
If you notice any signs of damage to your tiled roof, it’s important to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent further damage and potential water damage to your home. It’s recommended to hire a professional roofer to inspect and repair any damage to your tiled roof.
