Cement Tile Roofs

Cement Tile Roofs tend to last about 12- 15 years depending on a number of factors before they are in need of a roof restoration. A good way to see if your cement tile roof is in need of restoration is to look for any cracked, broken or chipped tiles and whether the ridge capping needs to be re-pointed. In addition you’ll want to look for colour fading or any moss, lichen and fungus on the roof.
