How to do Roof repairs on low pitch tile roof – Valhalla

Introduction

Maintenance on tile roofs, whether they are hi-pitch or low pitch roofs, are an ongoing task and they need to be taken care of all the time. The sun bakes down on a tile roof and that contribute to the deterioration thereof and after a while leave openings for water to penetrate. Where there is damp accumulating mould will form and will lead to medical issues.

Description

The low pitch tile roof needs repair and some patch up of waterproofing. A few tiles were broken, more of them were cracked and overall tiles started to separate which will lead to water entering the roof.

Problem/situation

This frequently maintained property was dew for a makeover. Waterproofing must be patched up and replaced and a coat of fresh paint will seal it off and it will be good for another 5 years.

Possible outcome

If left alone the roof will perish, mould will grow and cause medical issues. Replacement of the roof and medical expenses are expensive.

Suggestion

It is highly recommended to stick to the maintenance schedule. What needs to be done now is to renew all waterproofing membranes and paint all surfaces.

Work that was done

Before any work can commence the roof needs to be cleaned by a high-pressure hose. If there is any defect not previously seen it will be exposed now. In any case, all dust and debris should be removed from the surface. Any cracked or loose membrane can now be removed and the surfaces are waterproofed again. Waterproofing of valleys, flashing and plumbers vents must be done thoroughly. A fresh layer of quality UV resistant paint will protect the waterproofing and the rest of the roof alike.
