Barrel Tile Questions


#1

Walked into a house yesterday, climbed up in the attic and poof

There we have a Spanish Tile roof system installed over 1x4 plank boards gapped out like a cedar shake roof would normally be installed. Daylight everywhere…leaks (ofcourse)

Ive not done a world of tile but if memory serves me correct? Tile is supposed to have a decking 1/2" with a min of at least tile and metal underlayment? (weather guard)

In Florida Ive seen them hot mopp app 180 even on an 8/12 pitch. Ive never seen tile put on with out decking

My question to you guys is? Have you?

Even while I was in Germany (nothing but tile) there was decking and weather guard on 1x2"

Am I wrong for thinking there should be decking?
