Master Roofing Australia was called out to inspect a roof for an insurance company on the sunshine coast due to the entire ceilings in the house going mouldy.
Upon inspection it was clear to see the old style tile clips were leaking throughout the roof. The tile clips are notorious for leaking and are not used in today's roofing world.
The reason these tile clips leak are due to the fact they sit flat over the water course. The water traces down the clip into the roof. (as seen in the photos)
The new tile clips are more like a pin head that sits on the water course. The water can flow straight past it.
Master Roofing Australia took the following steps to resolve the issues with the leaking roof:
-remove all roof tiles
-remove all the old tile clips
-replace any rotten timber battens
-re-install all original roof tiles whilst installing the new style tile clip.
