Faded Or Damaged Roof Tiles
Tiles eventually lose their actual shape. That happens because of heat, rain, snow, and sun. Extended exposure of roof tiles more than expected lifespan will fade their colors and will chip away, giving a chance for water to penetrate underneath.
It’s all up to you and your observation to decide whether to replace all tiles, since it could appear awkward when you have a psychedelic-looking roof due to patches of replaced tiles.

Problems caused by damaged roof tiles
Damaged tiles can cause significant problems. Especially that is during heavy rains. The rain water will now enter your roof space. It will weigh down your underlayment.
Also it can seep into the lumber, where it can cause issues like moisture, condensation, and rot. Solving this problem is often as easy as replacing the tiles. This will involve lifting the tiles and sliding new ones into place.
Terracotta, standard, cast concrete, and earthenware roof tiles
You may find that the under branding has started to rot due to the humidity and will need to be replaced as well. Tile roofs are typically made with earth minerals like stained concrete, terracotta, standard tiles, cast concrete, and earthenware that easily survive fires, storms, and high winds.
They are rot resistant, energy efficient and free from insect damage. Also they require little maintenance.
As with any material, damage can occur with every passing day of our life. Faded tiles may look ugly but they actually are worn out and muddy.
Cracking And Missing Roof Tiles

The tricky thing with a flat roof is deciding if it just needs some minor repairs or if it needs to be replaced. Flat roofs require frequent inspection and maintenance so that if a streak appears, you’re good to catch up.
How cracked tiles compromise safety?
Some issues are often quite dangerous as they will compromise the integrity of the building and potentially endanger your life and the lives of others. Remember to always contact experts to examine, repair or replace your roof.
Because flat roofs have more pressure and stress than pitched roofs, they are more likely to crack when the pressure is excessive. Blisters and alligators can lead to cracks. This will end up compromising the roof. Cracks in your roof need to be dealt with by experts.
Tiles which are inspected almost every 3 months, can be easily identified for any damage or cracks. Gutters cleaned regularly will ensure that no debris rests on the roof tiles and develops cracks.
