Tile Roof Repair Costs

Outdoor Cost Guides      Roofing      Tile Roof Repair Costs

Tile roofs look great, but just like other roofs, there may come a time when some of those tiles need repair. Damage could occur from a range of different sources. Wind, debris falling onto the roof, freezing weather, and even the heat of the sun could eventually cause damage.

Damage to these types of roofs is often limited to individual tiles. This means that you will not have to replace all of the tiles on the roof in most cases. Only those that are damaged will likely need replacement, but it is often best to check with a professional that will be able to let you know the full extent of the damage.

In some cases, the repair might not even require new tiles. The current tiles could be repaired instead. When the tiles are damaged, it has the potential to cause leaks, which can, in turn, generate greater damage to the roof. Leaks can also end up causing water damage inside of the building, which can be costly to repair.

Many factors can affect the cost, such as the number of tiles that need to be replaced or repaired and the type of material from which those tiles are made. Options include concrete, lightweight concrete, metal, and clay.
