If you think you might have property damage, probably because you noticed signs such as stains in your ceiling, roof leaks, or visible roof damage.

This depends on a number of factors. If your tile roof is more than 10 years old, it is highly likely that the tile on your roof is no longer manufactured or commercially available. It is also likely it is no longer an accepted building material in the state of Florida. If that’s the case a Full Roof Replacement may be warranted.

After a hurricane, roofs can sustain various damage, some of which is unseen. This damage can include deflection (uplift) of your tiles, which pulls the fasteners loose of your plywood, leaving the roof susceptible to severe damage in the case of future windstorms.
 
Hidden damages to your underlayment which may sprout leaks months and even years after the hurricane.
 
Hip and ridge tile that may no longer be attached, but is literally just sitting on the roof under its own weight.
 
We often find cracked and chipped tile that may not be visible from the ground, after another roofer performed the more obvious repairs

You might receive a letter from your insurance carrier saying your roof no longer meets their underwriting standards, and they will drop your coverage pending replacement.
