The Problems Caused By Old Roof Tiles

During the life-cycle of your home, at some point it is likely you will require roof repairs or a completely new roof.

This kind of job isn’t something you can leave up to anyone with a ladder and tiles as you will need to contact Brisbane roof restoration experts to ensure the work is satisfactory and compliant for insurance purposes.

Our roofing experts are trained to detect problems and provide the best options for repair or replacement.

Whether you just purchased an older home with a tired roof or your current roof is ready to be replaced, let us help you with your tile roof restoration needs. Here’s why you shouldn’t let those old tiles go unrepaired.

Water leaks

The primary issue to look out for when you have an old roof is water damage.

The older the tiles, the more likely they are to be cracked or otherwise damaged.

While a bit of water leaking into your home isn’t an emergency, leaving broken tiles can lead to major problems and should be checked out right away.

The leak could grow larger and too much water running in can cause damage to your drywall, floors and furniture.

The team at Homestyle Roof Painters can look for leaks and help you find a new roofing solution, including tile roof restoration.

Health hazards

Besides the obvious issues that water leaks can cause, letting the problem go too long or not detecting it soon enough can lead to mould and mildew building up inside your home.

This can lead to a variety of health problems, including respiratory issues and exacerbation of existing conditions like asthma.

You can trust our experts to detect leaks, repair them and help you decide on new roofing tiles.

Exterior damage

In addition to causing problems inside your home, broken roof tiles can also lead to issues outside.

If they slide off, they could damage the gutter system, which can be costly and time consuming to repair.

In a rare but not impossible event, a falling roof tile may also injure someone.

In addition, broken roof tiles that aren’t replaced can lead to structural damage, which you want to avoid as it can be very costly and inconvenient.


Though you probably don’t get on your roof very often, broken tiles can cause safety concerns should you need to go up there for any reason.

Our experts are trained to detect this damage and ensure your home is safe, both inside and out. Our roofing experts can help you protect your family and your home at the same time.
