Most homeowners underestimate the harsh environment of their roof's surface. During the height of summer, the temperature of your roofing tiles in Las Vegas can skyrocket to over 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Some roof tiles are made of materials, such as slate, that can even become too hot to even touch with your bare hand. Additionally, climbing atop your roof during summer can be hazardous to your roof as some materials may become exceptionally brittle and easily damaged by an inexperienced hand.
Many of our customers will call us or contact us to ask whether it really matters if they are missing a few roof tiles in Las Vegas, or if it's okay to let a few broken tiles go un-repaired. Our answer is always a resounding no.
Broken or missing roofing tiles open up a space for the sun to beat directly on the protective tar paper installed underneath. Your roof tiles typically act as a protective shell for this material; without it the paper rapidly becomes brittle (particularly in sun-heavy cities like ours) and cracks. Water can penetrate through these cracks the next time it rains and cause significant damage to your building materials, in addition to creating an ideal environment for mold growth. In short, never let broken roof tiles go unanswered and don't attempt to cobble together a hasty DIY fix.
