Tile roofs are known for their durability and their resistance to things like fire and wind.
If tiles are damaged, they can also be easily replaced. This makes tile roofs one of the more popular roof options. However, if your tile roof wasn’t properly installed, then the underlayment may need to be replaced. If this is the case, then you may need to lift and relay your tile roof.
Do I need Tile Roof Lift and Relay?
If your roof is leaking a lot, but your tiles are in good condition, then there’s a good chance it’s a problem with the underlayment. Such problems can develop because the roof wasn’t properly installed; however, it can also result simply due to age. If your roof is over two decades old, then the underlayment may simply need to be replaced due to age.
However, if you have your roof inspected and it’s discovered that your underlayment needs replacing, you don’t necessarily need to replace your entire roof. If the shingles on your roof are relatively new or are still in good condition despite their age, then it would be a waste to replace them as well. Instead of replacing the roof, it can undergo a lift and relay process.
What is a Tile Roof Lift and Relay?
The way a lift and relay process works is relatively simple. The existing tiles will be lifted off of the roof. The underlayment will then be replaced and new flashing will be installed. Your existing tile will then be put back on the roof and any tiles that were damaged or missing will be replaced during this process.
Choosing the lift and relay process will help to prevent you from wasting perfectly good tiles, which means you’re choosing a more cost-efficient as well as environmentally-friendly option.
Even if the underlayment isn’t damaged, a lift and relay process can be a good idea if your roof is older as it will help extend your roof system’s lifespan. The Go Roof Tune Up crew will also give you a free inspection during this time to assess the other elements of your roof like the vents, ridges, and fascia.
