Clay Tile Roof Replacement San Diego

We specialize in all types of clay tile roofing, whether it’s for a clay tile roof replacement, or a clay tile roof repair.

A roofer who will be working on a clay tile roof repair or replacement needs to have a better understanding of tile roof systems than the roofer who has only worked with concrete tile. Clay roof tiles and concrete roof tiles are not the same at all. The sizes of the clay tile and the method of installation is like night and day.

For instance, MCA one piece clay roof tiles are larger than Deleo, Redlands, or US clay roof tiles. They are not interchangeable, but since US clay roof tiles are usually readily available, many roofers replace broken tiles on MCA roofs with them. The problem is that the smaller clay roof tiles do not fit with the larger clay roof tiles, and so do not cover the adjacent tiles with enough overlap. Since the clay tiles do not fit snug, they are impossible to walk on without breaking. Not good news the next time your home is tented for termites, or you have it painted, or a roof repair is needed.

Roof Replacement San Diego

Again, I have to say I know a lot of roofers who can put on a great looking roof. But there’s a lot more to a roof replacement than just that. Because over the years we’ve had such a large focus on fixing roof leaks, we apply that knowledge to giving you a new roof that not only looks better, but in most cases is more functional.
Another thing is the willingness of the roofer to take the time to do a good job. For instance, in areas where a fascia returns back into a ridgeline, from a rake line, if the framers cut the fascia too low and a tile will not fit under it, the majority of roofers will cut their roof tile around the fascia instead of changing their blade and cutting the fascia to an appropriate height so that a whole tile will fit under it. Then, when they do their cement work, they will fill the gaps in with cement. Unfortunately for the homeowner, this leaks water down under the tile and eventually results in a roof leak.

When you’re ready for a roof replacement San Diego homeowners, please call us for a free estimate. Your roof will not only look better, but function correctly.

Roof replacement is best left to professionals.

Roof Maintenance Program

It is a good idea to keep your roof maintained. The sun in San Diego is brutal and quickly dries out and destroys south-facing roofs. San Diego areas that have a lot of dew also have major devastating effects. Most of the roof leaks we fix are a result of dew getting in under roof tiles, or standing for long periods of time on low sloped roofing. You can stay on top of roof issues that lead to premature leakage by maintaining your roof on a yearly basis. If you’re energetic, you can do these things yourself. If you don’t have time, or don’t want to be bothered, you can hire us on a yearly basis.

Roof Inspection

If you’re buying a home, I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough. It does not matter if the roof is new or old either. Sad to say, most roofs have problems resulting from poor workmanship, defective materials, old building codes that were proved to be inadequate. A roof inspection is fairly inexpensive, and if you’re buying the home, usually more than pays for itself.

For instance, here’s a common scenario. Let’s say the tiles were stretched over the main living room and the nails were exposed, and let’s say that this roof section is approx. 1/4 of the roof. The home is already 15 years old, and now you’ve owned it for 2 years. Dew running down the roof and wicking down the nails under the tiles have finally worn the roof out, but prematurely. You cannot go back to the builder because it’s more than ten years old. You cannot go back to the seller because it hasn’t leaked before. In order to fix the problem the entire section of roof needs to be replaced, and it’s not really cheap.

If the house would have been inspected before being purchased, most likely the seller would be asked to pay for the repairs of a defective roof installation.

Roof Certification

Are you required to get a roof certification from the bank. We can help you out.

Built-Up Roofing (B.U.R.),
a.k.a. Low-Slope Roofing,
a.k.a. Flat Roofs

Roof Repair or Roof Replacement San Diego Area
There are a number of ways this type of roof can be done.

Hot Asphalt w/Capsheet
Hot Asphalt w/Rock
SBS Cold-Process Roofing
Torch-Down Roofing

Wood Shakes Repairs

Wood shims work best. They naturally build up the roof with a wood product. Some roofers use tin shingles, but be warned, tin shingles do not go higher up than the staples or nails of the shingle row above, resulting in an inadequate overlap. They also slide out if they are not nailed securely.

Dry-Rot, Termited Wood
We also do wood replacement. This would involve damaged wood due to dry-rot from water intrusion, or termite damage to wood fascia, shiplap, t&g, wood sheathing. We do clean work. While a lot of companies exclude painting the wood, it would be hard for us to sleep at night knowing that we left a job partially undone. First we cut the wood to fit. Then we get a computer match on the paint color, and paint the wood before it’s installed in place.
