Tile Roofing Certified

Posted on Posted in Home Inspection, Real Estate

IM Home Inspections is proud to be Certified by the Tile Roofing Institute.

Tile roofs are popular choice in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Conjo valleys.
Tile roofs are commonly concrete or clay titles. Tiles make to look like clay but made from concrete have been particularly popular with home builders in recent years.

Tile is a popular choice because tile roofs can last 40 to 50 years, which is much longer than a standard composition shingle roof. The tiles themselves can often then be reused when the home is re-roofed, as the roofer will change the underlayment and nails. A common problem with tile roofs is the tile are heavy and they can pull out the nails are supposed to be holding them in place.

Inspecting tile roofs requires a different approach than inspection shingle roofs. IM Home Inspections has taken the time to become certified in Tile Roofs to better serve clients who are buying a home with tile roofs. A home inspector is particular looking for crack tiles, tiles that have slip out of place, or are missing. The inspector is also making sure there is flashing in appropriate areas and other factors.
