Cracked Roof Tile Repairs

Cracked roof tile repairs are common repairs across Brisbane and they can cause a lot of stress to homeowners – but this doesn’t have to be the case.

Unless you know what you are doing, it can be dangerous to repair roof tiles yourself. Here’s how the professionals will detect and repair your tiled roof.

Check for Leaks

Cracked tiles can cause leaks so one of the first things the team at Brisbane Tile Roof Restorations will do is to inspect your roof to see if your cracked tiles have caused any damage inside the roof cavity. Doing this will allow us to ensure your roof is fixed correctly.

Clean the Roof

Cleaning the roof before any repairs start is done firstly to make it safer to repair the roof, and secondly to see any issues that may be covered by mould, mildew and algae. In Brisbane, roof cleaning is usually done by pressure washing, and beneficially this won’t cause further damage to your roof, but will remove mould and mildew.

Replace the Broken Roof Tiles

Replacing the broken roof tiles is the main aim in cracked roof tile repairs. Our team will carefully go over your roof, and replace the broken tiles. We will also reposition any dislodged tiles and replace any missing tiles.

Apply a Sealant

Roof sealing is important to protect against weather damage and roof leaks. The most commonly used sealants are:Cracked Roof Tile

  • Silicone
  • Polyurethane
  • Acrylic, and
  • Liquid Rubber

The type of seal used will depend on your location, the types of tiles you have on your roof and the ease of installation. Some sealants are better used on flat roofs, while others suit sloped roofs.

Painting and Staining Tiles

While getting your roof cleaned gets rid of all the mould, mildew and algae, it can completely change the colour of your tiles – often your tiles won’t go back to the original colour, they generally tend to be a sun-faded version of the original.

It is worth having your tile roof painted every 10-15 years as part of your home improvement schedule. Painting or staining your roof tiles adds another layer of protection, helping to stop the tiles breaking down over time.

Cracked roof tile repairs don’t need the be difficult, and if you only have one or two cracked tiles, replacing them can be done in as little as 20 minutes. However, if you are experiencing leaks, or you have multiple cracked tiles, it is worth considering whether it is time to clean and paint your roof at the same time.
