How to do Waterproofing on a high pitch tile roof

Introduction

Waterproofing and painting of the tiles on a tile roof is important or they will crack and break easily. Cement tiles tend to deteriorate sooner, as soon as the protective paint wears off, water is absorbed and the tile perish. If the tiles fail and there is no waterproofing on the roof, water will enter the roof and accumulate in the form of moisture (damp). It is when timber will start to rot and mould will grow. When timber rot the roof structure will fail and the roof collapses. Mould, on the other hand, will lead to the occupants to fall ill.

Description of the condition of the property

The protective layer on the tiles of this roof is worn off and the cement filling between the tiles forming the ridge of a roof is separating.

Problem/situation

When the cement filling on the ridge of a roof separates water will enter the roof and the damp inside the roof help with the rotting of timber and the growth of mould.

Possible outcome

This classic situation where roof waterproofing and maintenance is left behind lead to cement filling on the ridge of a roof to separate. Water will enter the roof and damage is inevitable. Together with medical expenses, the consequences will cost the owner a pretty penny.

Suggestion

Best to clean the roof, do roof repairs where necessary and the waterproof and paint with UV resistant paint.

Work to be done 

Clean the roof of all dust and debris using a high-power hose. Replace damaged roof tiles and do waterproofing on the roof ridge, flashing and valleys. Seal the roof with quality UV resistant paint.
