If your PHX tile roof is over 15 years old, it is time to have the underlayment evaluated by a licensed AZ roofing contractor. Whether you’re considering a full tile roof replacement or looking for a tile roof repair, Allstate Roofing Company has the expertise to properly evaluate your tile roof. Often, a Tile R&R can be performed rather than installing all new tile on your roof. Tile R&R can save you a substantial amount of money over a new tile roof, but what is it?
Tile R&R stands for “tile removal and replacement.” The process consists of carefully removing your existing roofing tile in order to replace the underlayment. After all the existing roofing materials have been removed, your roof’s substrate will be thoroughly inspected to ensure that it is in satisfactory condition to support your new roofing materials. New underlayment is then installed. Today’s underlayment materials are far more advanced from the older materials, providing better leak protection for a longer period of time. On top of the new underlayment, new wood battens are installed. These narrow wood strips are the material which the tile is actually attached to.
There have been significant changes in the past several years to the requirements for tile roofs; Allstate Roofing stays up-to-date with these requirements, and will ensure that your roof meets all current codes.
This means that Allstate Roofing will replace all roof flashings, and install hip and ridge enclosure. In addition, the new codes require metal drip edge and bird stop be installed on all tile roofs. These items will be included in your Tile R&R from Allstate Roofing, Inc.
Your tile will now be re-installed over the new underlayments. handlNo matter how carefully your existing tile has been ed, there will always be a certain amount of tile breakage which occurs with a tile R&R. Rest assured that the new tile will be matched as closely as possible to your existing tile, and incorporated seamlessly into your roof surface.
