Waterproofing tile roof – Harvey tile roof in Centurion


The roof forms a central part of a property. It is important to have it taken good care of or it will deteriorate and fail. Waterproofing is one of these maintenance tasks of a roof if neglected it will cause huge financial expense and you might not be in the position to do so.


Roof structures deteriorate over time and that is a fact. Bugs, eating wood make a feast out of the timber and it is also a possibility that wood will rot. Entering the roof it was found that the roof structure is damaged.


Because of the weakening of the timber the roof structure is compromised. Tiles are beginning sag, that means that openings between them started to occur. Water is entering the roof with rain and cause unnecessary damage.

Possible outcome

The roof timber will rot as soon as water enters the roof structure and the forming of mould is unavoidable. When left like this it will lead to the replacement of the roof later. Living in the vicinity of mould, on the other hand, has medical consequences. Both of these scenarios will be costly to rectify.

Suggestion to remedy the situation

The roof needs to be opened by removing the tiles where the roof must be worked on. Attaching timber to the affected roof structure will strengthen it. Waterproof and paint the roof.
