The pictures above are some of the broken tiles that had to be replaced.Tiles can get broken from a number of reasons. Low tree branches or limbs that hit against a tile roof . Falling branches or limbs. Foot traffic from walking on the tiles and from golf balls when the pros play. Tiles that have unseen cracks from initial installation that become visible in time. We can repair these for you – Just give us a call.
