A tile remove & re-set, otherwise known as a tile R&R, is a method of tile roofing where the existing tile is removed before a new underlayment is installed to waterproof your roof. A strong underlayment is especially important because, along with metal flashing, it’s the main component of your roof’s waterproofing. Waterproofing is important for roofs because it protects your home from water damage that could occur from leaks, and keeps your home structurally sound.
After the new underlayment is installed, the existing tile is re-installed. This practice is common in Arizona and is less expensive than installing all new tile. Due to HOA requirements, installing new tile isn’t always possible, making a tile R&R a good alternative. A tile R&R also allows an underlayment to be replaced while the tiles above it are still usable.
With a tile R&R, we can provide 10 year and 20 year “No Leak” manufacturer warranties.
