An understandable concern for home owners is the integrity of their roof tiles. This is particularly true for owners of older homes. Old terracotta tiles are always the most brittle roof tile type. Modern concrete roof tiles are generally less breakable, but some varieties of old concrete roof tiles were made using inferior material mixes and can break easily. This is not something to immediately lose sleep over, any experienced roof workers and gutter cleaners should recognise fragile roofs once arriving at your property.
If roof tiles are broken our gutter cleaners can easily attend to this issue. Looking into the crawl space underneath your house is one way of finding spare tiles, any leftover tiles are often placed there during construction. Most houses already have spare tiles on site but if you don’t have enough spares there are 2 main options. We can repair your broken tile using top quality roof and gutter silicone, or if necessary we can replace the broken tile with one of your spares. If necessary we can supply you with a stack of spare tiles meaning any future breakages can be fixed ASAP. Regardless of your roof tile profile, we can source matching replacements. It is quite easy for us to find a backup stack of spare tiles for your roof.
We are always happy to fix a few broken tiles wherever possible, but there is a limit to the repairs that we can offer. In many cases the repair and restoration needs for your roof will be beyond our service, if this is the case you may need a roof tiler or plumber.
We are experts at accessing old fragile roofs, we take great care to employ only the most suitable staff for this type of work. Whether your roof is metal, terracotta, slate or concrete; we have experienced it all before! See the other pages of this site to see examples of the roof types that we regularly clean gutters on.
