Making sure your tile roof installation is done correctly can be an essential part of your house. You pay a lump sum of money for your roof as it is and you don’t want to have unnecessary costs that could be avoided if it’s done correctly. Here are some tips to make sure that your contractor did your tile roof installation correctly.
- Check for missing tiles – If you notice any gaps or extra space between your tiles that could cause your roof to cause further damage to under your roof. Extra gaps could allow water damage and other wear and tear.
- Correct siding around the roof – The siding around your tile roof being installed correctly is just as important as the tiles itself. Making sure that the siding isn’t letting in any water or moisture is crucial to having a correctly installed roof. Checking for moisture damage or water leaks under and around the sides of your roof can help you see if it is installed correctly.
- Tile flashing – Just like with siding other accessories on the roof must have flashing around them so that they don’t let water inside the roof. Missing tiles or incorrectly installed tiles can cause gaps to be present in the roof.
- Moss build-up – Tile roofs can still have moss or algae build-up and getting rid of that is not hard but it is necessary to.and algae build-up in areas that don’t get a lot of light or still water collects. Knowing if your roof has these areasis important so you can keep track of it or fix it.
Another tip is to talk to your contractor about how to tell if your tile roof installation was done correctly. He should be able to point out all the problems that could happen and how they are combating them.
