ROOF TUNE UP: Irvine Roofing with Blue Knight:
Most tile roof leaks can be fixed with a Roof Tune Up by correcting the poor roofing workmanship practiced throughout Irvine for the last 20 years.
A complete and thorough inspection and assessment of materials needed. This includes pictures, consultation and signed contract.
Replace or repair missing, slipped and broken tiles. Re-seal flashings as needed. Patch small areas of tar paper as needed.
Installed properly and with periodic maintenance, a tile roof can last indefinitely. Like having your house painted periodically, it's also advisable to have your Irvine roof inspected and maintenanced every 5 years or so.
The sun deteriorates some of the roof pipe sealants. The wind loosens and dislodges roof tiles, cement grout. Hairline cracks gone unnoticed during installation, become bigger and eventually separate, exposing the sub-layers or tar paper. Roof Tiles that were mis-nailed can slip down from their original position left unattended, these area will become further damaged as their sub-layer will rot in the sun.
When the plywood gets wet repeatedly, it creates a perfect environment for termites to get started and find an entrance into your house. This is a very common occurrence in the costal climates of Irvine.
Where your roof is concerned, it's best to be proactive rather than wish you did...
