Many people tell me that they don’t want their roof tile fixed because a tile just slipped.

Should you replaced a broken tile on your roof?


The tile protects the felt.

The felt keeps the water out.

Tile don’t just slip because each tile is nailed and/or hung on a 1″ x 2″ wood strip.

Broken tile slide and let water, debris, birds into the space and then sun and water

and birds destroy the felt,  then water  gets in to the insulation, & then ceiling

and wall board.

This is a video case in point:
