|Walking on a Spanish tile
I wanted to tell you and your readers that I own a 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival with a "tile" roof. Your comments about preventing cracking is very beneficial and I've referred to them several times since I've been following your site.
Just a little trick I learned when
dealing with any slate/clay tile
Take several sand bags and fill up to about 75% of capacity
I've used this technique several times and it works great. All you need is a bunch of 2x12's and some sandbags. Not only does it save on roofing repair expenses but it allows you to cover a large area. It's almost like having scaffolding on your roof.
Take care Reggie!
