Loose Roofing Tiles

July 22, 2011

Loose Roofing TilesI notice this problem quite often. This is usually on a lower roof of a two story home where the lower roof meets the upper wall. There is a flashing which is proper and that is put in place before the roofing tiles are installed. When the tiles are installed, the roofers cannot nail them down (you can see the nail holes in the tile pieces) because when the tiles are shoved up under the flashing there is no way to put a nail in them and hammer them down. These tile pieces should be put back and secured with some tar under the edges. It is dangerous because if these tiles were to continue to slip down and fall off and hit someone, it could cause very serious damage.
