Do NOT Repair Discontinued Tile

We’ve seen a lot of misinformation post-Hurricane Irma regarding damage to ones discontinued tile. We did the research ourselves (most don’t bother) and can tell you with certainty that discontinued tile cannot be repaired to Florida Building Code standards.

Unfortunately there are a lot of “local” roofing companies convincing homeowners to do these improper repairs in order to make a quick buck. What's worse is that Insurance companies also try to convince homeowners to take a quick settlement in order to save themselves thousands of dollars when they know that they owe to replace the entire roof. Don't let them take advantage of you.

The Problem with Repairing Discontinued Tile

The problem is that these repairs that are not up to Florida Building Code. They WILL eventually be discovered, like during an inspection when the owner wants  to sell the home/finance the home,  or renew their insurance. When it is found that the roof is not built to code, the homeowner’s only choice is to pay the full cash price to replace the roof, costing tens of thousands of dollars.
