Looking for a good method to install new tile, monier-lifetile, 12'' x 17'' concrete, normal top lap 3" to 4 ", 12" wide inter-locking side lap; on a turrent (cone shaped) roof, pitch 12 on 12. Dried in with peel and stick, have cut and butted together sides, fastening with screws. Owner does not like seeing the cut edges. Have considered filling with mortar, but possibly it will crack and fall out eventually. Have done it this way once several years ago and had no complaints. Wondering if there is another way. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks

I think you've got a problem. once you cut the tile you no longer have a finish edge. The home owner either lives with it or you go to a differant material. That is why you gotta love slate cut it and it looks GREAT! If you've done this before you should have known what to expect and should have informed the home owner of it and even gave him/her a sample. Good luck!!!

We live in Florida. Our home is 14 yrs. old, concrete block. We have the original Monier Slate, white color. It has been leaking for the past 7 years. We have the original roofer come and repair each time. Twice now he has come for really bad leaks that ruined our ceiling and walls and insullation - all had to be replaced. He removed tiles across back of house and replaced plywood and tar paper and replaced tiles. Same to the front of house. Now he tells us the tiles are slipping and the roof needs to be replaced at the cost of $29,000.00 for about 4,000 sq. ft. Can this be happening? This was put on by one of our areas leading concrete tile roofers. Do we have any recourse? Please answer to BJH118@aol.com
Thank you very much. J. Horton

Hire another roofer to inspect the roof and give you another opinion. I am not familiar with concrete tile ,but if the tile are slipping and not decaying or wore out you should be able to lift the tile ,install new felts ect. then re-install the same tile,especially if this has already been done to 2 sections of your roof..Also by getting a second opinion maybe the tile were not installed properly or your roof pitch may be to low ect. ect..I doubt that you would be able to get any type of money out of your roofer or tile manufacturer?
