[quote=“FrankD”]How much will my 90 lb organic paper deteriorate with 40 days exposed to Florida sun (my fault, not my roofer’s)? My roofer says that tile should have been installed within 30 days. Will the extra 10 days cause premature wear to the paper?
He is trying to tell you that your underlayment is really messed up. He could easily just "Go with it."
But he /she is trying to do the right thing for you and your roof and his reputation.
I know it cost money. a lot. I know. a lot.
But a tile roof is a leaky roof.
As in the top layer is just for looks.
So if the underlayment isnt perfect. Its leaky.
How many years are you wanting out of this roof?
I trust a tile roof less than i trust any other roof.
Now the metal roofing made to look like tile. I like that. I haven’t had a chance to install that yet, but i want to.
People want to think a tile roof is a “lifetime”.
In florida It seems they dont last 20 years.
And you spent all that money.
You are paying for looks with a tile roof.
The tile will be there for you
while the wood rots underneath.
Is the roof already loaded? Is the 1x2 installed?
