Tile Roof System

So let's talk about tile roof systems for a moment. Contrary to what you might think most leaks don't occur in the field. Look to the flashing detail including but not limited to valley's, changes in exterior elevation and or the penetrations. Tight valley tile installation and poor flashing detail is a "roof leak" waiting to happen. The tight valley configuration can and will restrict run off during heavy inclement weather conditions, this allows water flow to migrate off the valley flashing onto the paper and or to the interior of the structure.

Today's recommendation.... Refer to an independent licensed roofing contractor for further evaluation/service as needed to ensure roof systems integrity prior to close of escrow.
