When to replace roof tiles?

You may need to renew your tiled roof in the following situations:

  • After a roof leakage
  • If your roof flashing is cracked
  • When your tiles are old or porous
  • After storm damage or missing tiles
  • When moss is growing on your tiles.

Advantages of roof tiles as roofing material

For your roof, you have a choice of various types of roofing materials. Sedum roofing and bitumen roofing, for example, are increasingly popular options among many households. However, the most popular roofing material is still the old reliable roof tile. A tiled roof is most suitable for pitched roofs and is therefore still one of the best choices for a sloping roof.

There are several advantages to having a good tiled roof. We have listed the most important advantages for you:

A tiled roof requires little maintenance

A tiled roof requires relatively little maintenance, which is one of its main advantages. With a tiled roof, you don't have to worry about anything. Just have a roof inspection done (half) annually and enjoy a dry roof over your head for years to come. This way, you don't have to climb onto the roof yourself and the roof tiles will last for years. Local repairs are easy for us as a roofer to carry out.

Long lifespan of roof tiles

Having roof tiles installed is a sustainable investment. A tiled roof lasts a very long time, about 30 to 50 years. Roof tiles are a bit more expensive compared to other roofing materials, but it's worth the investment.

Resistant to various weather conditions

A roof covered with roof tiles is resistant to severe weather conditions. Your tiled roof will remain intact in all kinds of weather. In addition, roof tiles are extremely waterproof, which reduces the risk of roof leaks.

Good water drainage

Thanks to the sloping roof and the overlapping roof tiles, rainwater can be drained neatly towards the gutter. This ensures that there is little to no water nuisance during heavy rain showers.

Types of roof tiles we lay

We lay concrete and ceramic roof tiles from brands such as Monier, Koramic, Eternit, Lafarge, and Nelskamp. The type of tile we recommend depends on the neighboring roofs and what tile best suits your house and the surrounding area. Often, we choose a similar tile, but a newer model. If concrete or ceramic tiles were previously used, we often choose the same type of tile when replacing your roof tiles. If you have a detached house, you do not have to take into account surrounding roofs and you have complete freedom in choosing the type of tile you want us to lay.

How much does it cost to replace ridge tiles?

The costs of laying roof tiles depend entirely on the size of your roof, whether the roof tiles need to be completely replaced or just a part of them. In addition, the cost of removing the old roof tiles is also included in the total cost estimate. Therefore, we cannot estimate the costs in advance without inspecting the roof. To provide an accurate cost estimate, we come to inspect your roof free of charge before giving a quote. On average, you can expect costs between €180 and €350 per m2.

Frequently Asked Questions about Tiled Roofs

Roof tiles have an extremely long lifespan. For example, ceramic roof tiles can last for about 75 years, while concrete roof tiles can last for approximately 40 years. Sometimes, it may be the case that some roof tiles need to be replaced earlier, for instance, if they become porous. Therefore, we always recommend a preventive roof inspection once a year to prevent roof leaks caused by broken roof tiles.

If you have an older roof, at some point the water-repellent layer will disappear and the tiles can become porous. Porous roof tiles can easily absorb water and retain it, which can lead to a roof leak.

The cost of new roof tiles depends entirely on the type of roof tile you choose. On average, you can expect the cost of a new tiled roof to be between €85 to €150 per square meter, excluding the cost of installation.

Wind-blown roof tiles are the result of a poorly laid tile roof. Tiles that are securely fastened will not quickly blow off in bad weather. Another cause is poor ventilation of a tile roof. A well-ventilated roof prevents moisture and roof tiles from blowing off the roof. Roof tiles that blow off the roof are extremely dangerous because loose tiles can cause a lot of damage. If you are unsure whether your tile roof is properly laid, please request a free roof inspection from us.

If you have one or more loose roof tiles or suspect they are loose, it is advisable to have them checked by an experienced roofer and have them promptly re-attached. If you don't do this or do it too late, there is a risk of rainwater penetrating between the tiles, causing a roof leak to develop.

You do not need to apply for a permit to replace roof tiles because it is considered maintenance when replacing the same type of roof tiles. Even if you want to lay a different color of roof tiles, this falls under maintenance. This applies not only to homes, but also to offices, hospitality establishments, and sheds.
