Tile Tune-Up

Tile roofs. They add a unique depth and beauty to homes and businesses, and are long-lasting, even through Colorado weather. Generally speaking, a cement tile roof can last 50 years or more — wow! For many home and business owners, investing in a long-lasting tile roof is well worth it. Trading the hassle of a roof replacement every few years for the peace of mind that comes with a tile roof justifies the monetary tradeoff.

Care of a Tile Roof 

If you want to get the most out of your tile roof, there are a few things you should have a qualified and experienced roofer inspect on a consistent basis. We call this our “Tile Tune-Up,” as we want to help ensure that your tile roof lasts year after year after year.

  • Debris: Buildup of leaves and sticks on tile can cause the tile to fester, leak and reduce the lifespan of your roof

  • Broken Tile: Not uncommon and an easy fix for our roofing professionals

  • Flashing: Check in valley walls, skylights and vents

  • Loose Tiles: Need to be fastened tight

Broken Tile

A common occurrence on a tile roof is having a tile that is cracked or broken. It doesn’t seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but it can certainly wreak havoc. Debris can create a dam on the broken tile, thus sending water all over the roof tiles instead of down the valley and into the gutter as designed. This can create a leak under the broken tile into your home. Having the broken tile replaced will help ensure the impermeable nature of your roof!

Debris

Another simple yet important item we check is debris. Buildup of leaves, twigs and even ice will also hinder the free-flowing water when it rains, thus causing a dam and leakage into your home.

Loose Tiles

Did you know that each individual tile on your roof weighs between 9 and 12 pounds? Now picture that tile becoming loose over the years, and eventually plummeting to the ground with the next storm. One can only imagine the damage that could ensue as well as the dangerous possibility of harm to your family or pets. Celtic is going to make sure that every tile on your roof is secure.

Next Steps

You tune up your car to keep it in the safest condition possible, and now you call the Celtic Clan to do a tune-up on your tile roof for the same reason. Safety and security are why we do what we do. Contact us for a free evaluation and plan for keeping your roof in tip-top condition!

COVID-19 Roofing Safety

covid-19 roofing

At Celtic, since we’re roofers we benefit from having a birds-eye view on the world. From our vantage point, we have seen traffic thin, fewer cars driving by, and far more people staying at home during normal working hours.

We take the health and safety of clients and our team very seriously. We will continue to follow the advice and guidelines of the CDC and local and national health agencies relating to COVID-19.

We see the concern of those around us here at home in Colorado as well as our society as a whole. It is vital to us that our customers know we take precautions seriously to avoid any possible danger, but will also continue working within safe limitations to serve our community with the highest standards possible, as we’ve done for more than three decades.

Diagnostics, repairs and roof replacements take place outside the home, and we utilize the latest technology to ensure safe and healthy projects. Site visits take place solely outdoors, we use satellite imagery for job layout and measurements, as well as engage in touch-free communication (via cell phones, live video chat, etc.) which can be used to provide an excellent experience while adhering to safety guidelines. In addition, work agreements and transactions can be finalized electronically. Our commitment to quality, loyalty and dependability has never been more important than right now.

We look forward to continuing to serve you!

Protecting your home from the outside in — the Celtic Roofing Team.
