The average lifespan of a tiled roof is around 60 years, although this largely depends on what material the tiles are made from. However, during their lifespan, tiles may move or become damaged for any number of reasons, requiring repair work to the roof.
If repair work isn’t carried out quickly to a tiled roof the damage caused by rainwater getting into your property can dramatically increase repair costs. If the structural timbers of a roof are continually exposed to damp conditions, without drying, they can rot.
The amount of work needed to replace timbers would be significantly more expensive than carrying out repair work to roof tiles, flashings, ridges, or valleys.
