On the Job: Spanish Tile Roof Repair
There are few roofing materials that compare to Spanish tile. It is very durable and versatile and brings an unmatched level of beauty to a home's exterior. Garcia Roofing recently completed a Spanish Tile roof repair job in Baton Rouge, near Goodwood Boulevard.
According to the homeowner, these particular tiles were handmade in Mexico. Our client was so dedicated to obtaining the perfect Spanish look for his roof, he actually drove to Mexico to pick them up!
Garcia Roofing was called to the job for a roofing repair. Our expert roofers removed the old, damaged tiles. Our carpenter removed and replaced the rotten decking underneath. We then installed a copper drip edge.
To create a watertight seal, a layer of GAF StormGuard Water & Ice Shield was applied to the new decking. New pressure treated running boards were securely fastened, and finally, the beautiful handmade tiles were carefully fastened to the roof with copper nails. This roofing job illustrates Spanish tile at its very best.
