Checklist for Tile Roof Evaluation Mobile App
Do not walk on your tile roof.
How does it work?
You can do more damage to certain types of tile roof by walking on them without knowing what you are doing than any good you might be able to do by re-attaching loose tiles. If you are able to climb a ladder and will be safe on the ladder, climb up to a corner of the roof and check the eave and edge tiles to make sure that they are well attached to the roof. If the tiles are set in mortar, look for areas where gaps have developed that would indicate that the tiles are separating from the mortar. Note that in some cases, the mortar along the eaves may be just a filler for looks. Also look for cracks in the tiles and broken or missing tiles. The Checklist for Tile Roof Evaluation mobile app includes both a visual from inside the attic and visual from inside your house.
