Extend The Life Of Your Current Roof For Less Than The Cost Of A New Roof
When Should I Plan To Reset Or Replace My Concrete Tile, Clay Tile, or Slate Roof?
If you have clay or concrete roof tiles that have not been replaced for more than 25 years, you are likely due for a tile reset or roof replacement. To determine which option is the right option for you, Hull and Sons can perform a full on-site evaluation. We will then be able to establish the remaining life of your current roof and consult with you to design a new plan for reroofing or resetting existing tiles. Generally, at the very least, after 25+ years of use, you will have to reset new flashings and install a high-quality underlayment if you plan to reuse your existing tile. If your current style of tile is no longer available, you will likely need to consider re-roofing.
How long does tile underlayment last?
Underlayment is a vital part of a homeowner’s roofing system. We can help you select the correct underlayment for long-lasting durability in the context of either a tile reset or tile replacement. Your new underlayment will help to prevent water intrusion and protect your roofing deck under extreme conditions.
There are various kinds of underlayment available:
Asphalt-Saturated Felt: This used to be the long-time industry standard. It is also known as felt paper.
Rubberized Asphalt: This is the most expensive but as it contains greater amounts of asphalt and various rubber polymers it has the advantage of being waterproof.
Adding protection for your house
Roofing underlayment is an extra layer of protection for your home. It serves as added protection beneath your shingles to withstand many kinds of weather events and can be replaced when doing a tile reset. Depending on weather and climate conditions, a good quality underlayment can last 20-25 years, but it should be routinely inspected.
