The impact of bad weather on your roof tiles depends on which type of tiles are on your roof, their age and the severity of the weather conditions.

  • Rainwater can gradually wear down roof tiles. Over time, this can lead to erosion, weakening of the tiles, and potential leaks.
  • Strong winds can lift or dislodge roof tiles, especially if they are not properly secured.
  • Hailstorms can cause significant damage to roof tiles, potentially resulting in cracks, fractures, or even completely shattering the tiles.
  • Extreme cold temperatures can cause contraction in roof tiles, potentially leading to cracking.
  • Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can cause roof tiles to expand and contract, leading to cracks or breakages over time.
  • Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause fading and deterioration of roof tiles over time.
  • An accumulation of snow and ice on the roof can add weight and stress to the structure, potentially leading to damage or collapse.

To mitigate the impact of bad weather on your roof tiles, it is important to ensure proper installation, maintenance and periodic inspections of your roof. Contact West Country Tiling for roof maintenance and roof inspections.
