Tile roofs are a very popular roofing style in California. Colin Roofing specializes in concrete and clay tile roofs. We offer both concrete and clay tile roof repairs. Concrete tiles, however, stand out as the most popular roofing option in California. Compared to the 10-30 years lifespan of other types of roofs, a concrete tile roof lifespan is in another league altogether. With a 50 to 60-year lifespan, cement tiles promise a lifetime of beautified shelter for your home!
Although roofing tiles last a lifetime, the underlayment paper underneath the tiles does not! Underlayment paper is the middle barrier between your tile roof and the plywood sheeting. Most tile roof leaks are caused by deteriorating underlayment, and the objective of tile roof repairs is to replace the underlayment paper. The typical lifespan of underlayment that is properly installed is 10 to 20 years. At Colin Roofing, however, we always install a premium synthetic underlayment that lasts 30 years because our clients deserve the best! Synthetic underlayment is tear-resistant and the best protection for your roof. When selecting a tile roofing contractor, ask your roofer what product they will install on your home. Here is a list of other underlayment papers that roofers in California tend to use:

Cheaper is not always better. Do not compromise the integrity of your roof for a cheaper deal. It will cost you more in the future to repair.
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. Roofers are experts at camouflage.
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.
