A Brisbane-based Tile Roof Repair Company
There’s a host of reasons tiled roofs need repair. Some reasons are pretty obvious like broken / missing tiles or major leaks during rain, others are a little more subtle like hearing drips in the middle of the night when you have a light shower of rain or the pointing being cracked, broken or just plain missing (the pointing is what holds your tiles in place, without it there’s a good chance tiles will move in heavy wind or storms and once one tile moves, typically others will follow).
There are many reasons why you should consider having Gutter and Roof Repairs conduct an inspection on your roof, here’s a few:-
- Cracked tiles
- Missing tiles
- Tiles that have moved or are out of place
- Cracked, broken or missing pointing (also called ridges or capping)
- Leaks in your roof
- Bits of tiles or pointing in your gutters or downpipes
- Storm damage
- Hail damage

Can hail damage a tiled roof?
Yes, hail can and does cause damage on a tiled roof but it’s not always easy to see. Most hail damage tends to be aesthetic (minor cracks) which isn’t always a problem and shouldn’t cause any issue with your roof.
If however moisture gets underneath your tiles and starts to find its way into your roof cavity or onto your ceiling, walls or light fittings, that can be a big issue. This can start as a small drop and end up a river underneath your entire bed of tiles, causing the water to pool in areas which will eventually cause mould and further water damage to your internal structure and ceiling areas.
This type of damage isn’t always visibly apparent and usually only shows up when it’s too late (like if you notice a damp spot in your ceiling from a drip in the roof) so it’s best to have a concrete tile roof repair company inspect your roof if you suspect there could be hail damage to your tiles.
How long does it take to repair a tiled roof?
This will depend on the extent of the damage that’s occurred. If for example your tile roof was damaged in a storm or a tree has fallen and caused damage this will be a much larger job than simply replacing a few cracked tiles or a complete roof restoration.
Most jobs we have completed for happy customers in the past take only 2-3 days but the best way to find out is to contact us on 0421 460 580 and get us out for an inspection.
What happens if it rains when you’re repairing my roof?
Brisbane is known for its afternoon storms and sometimes fast moving weather patterns. If we’re repairing your terracotta tiled roof we continually monitor weather patterns and keep up-to-date with weather projections from the Bureau of Meteorology. With this in mind we take appropriate steps to tarp up your roof to ensure it’s fully watertight if we need to leave any part of your roof exposed overnight and there’s a chance of rain.
