Tile

Roofing tiles are composed of either concrete or clay and come in a wide variety of colors, styles and shapes.  Both concrete and clay are aesthetically pleasing and are also long life products needing little or no maintenance. Tiles are not waterproof, but rather shed water allowing some, especially in blowing rains, to penetrate the laps in the tiles.  The underlayment is the real waterproofing component.  If not for the underlayment, water could leak into the building causing damage to your home, or worse, unseen mold growth, which can be a health hazard. Over time, this underlayment eventually wears out, and must be replaced.  This is done section by section, removing the tiles, and replacing the worn underlayment. This practice is referred to as a tile relay because the old tile is reused while replacing any broken tile with new tile.
