Tile roofs are a very popular roofing style in California. You can choose from various kinds of tiles for your roof. These include: clay, concrete and metal. Concrete tiles stand out as the most popular roofing option in California.
Compared to the 10-15 years lifespan of most other kinds of roofing, cement tiles are in another league altogether. With a 50 to 60-year lifespan, cement tiles promise a lifetime of beautified shelter for your home. So once you choose a roofing style that you love, you can count on us to install your new tile roof.
Although tiles can last a lifetime, the underlayment paper underneath the tiles does not! Indeed, the typical lifespan of underlayment paper that is properly installed can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. At Colin Roofing, we primarily install a premium synthetic underlayment that lasts 30 years. It is tear resistant and one of the best products for underlayment paper on the market! Our clients deserve the best. Compare this to other choices of underlayment below:
For more information on the longevity of underlayment paper and which one is right for your roof, call us at (661)225-9855 or email us at email@example.com to discuss your project in detail! Finally, please check in with your roofer and understand what materials they are installing on your home. Cheaper is not always better. Do not compromise the quality of roofing materials for a cheaper deal. It will cost you more in the future.
A tile maintenance project prolongs the life of the roof by repairing vulnerable spots. A tile roof should get maintenance every 3-5 years to ensure the underlayment paper is not exposed to the natural elements. A properly maintained roof can last over 20 years; if you want the underlayment to achieve its maximum lifespan, then you must get the roof routinely inspected.
Colin Roofing focuses on 5 critical components in a tile maintenance:
The first component we address is the broken tiles. Tiles break for a multitude of reasons, including: a poor baseball toss, sizeable hail, or a satellite guy stepping erroneously. Colin Roofing replaces all broken tiles with tiles that best match the existing color. If we cannot find an exact match, we replace the broken tiles with other tiles in less conspicuous places on the roof. Then, we refill those less conspicuous places with the new tiles.
The second component we address is sliding tiles. Tiles slide down when they are not properly nailed onto the roof during installation. Colin Roofing resets sliding tiles with galvanized nails to ensure they never slide down again until the roof needs replacement. It is essential to reset sliding tiles into place because tiles divert 80% water away from the underlayment. They are the first barrier of defense from the natural elements and must be in good form to protect the roof.
The third component of a successful tile maintenance is addressing the cracked mortar on the ridge cap ends. Mortar is installed at the intersection of multiple roofing planes. It diverts water away from the underlayment paper and plays as critical of a role in the roof's protection as the tiles. Mortar can crack due to sun exposure or improper installation. Colin Roofing's team specializes in applying mortar on the ridge cap ends and matches the color of the tile roof to seamlessly integrate the repair work.
The fourth component of concern is the pipes and vents. Roof pipes are usually used for the bathroom and kitchen. Vents keep the temperature of the attic cool. Every pipe on the roof should have a metal flashing installed around it to prevent water intrusion. The junction between the pipe and flashing must be resealed every 3 years by a licensed roofer! Because the metal flashings are the hottest parts of the roof, the sealant tends to crack after a couple years. Colin Roofing uses premium roofing sealant to seal the pipes and vents. Colin Roofing also paints the pipes and vents to camouflage it with the roof. We make the repair look seamless.
The fifth component of concern is debris on the roof. The main cause of debris on the roof is leaves from surrounding trees. These leaves tend to accumulate on the tile valleys and prevent water from flowing off the roof effortlessly. Water stagnation can deteriorate the underlayment paper. In certain cases, Colin Roofing power washes and removes the debris off the tile roof--especially in the valley sections.
