Missing and/or displaced roofing tiles causing the membrane to become exposed. Recommend repairs by a state licensed roofing contractor.


This is obviously one of those "easy to fix" situations but that isn't up to us. My "rule of thumb" is to make the determination as to the defect and then recommend the "highest authority."

The client can decide whether or not to hire a "handyman" or even fix it themselves.

Jeff…why “missing tile”…it seems that the thing that is missing is the “mud” at the end of the flashing…right?

That would depend on the workmanship in my opinion.


As a roofer in high school, it was easier to cover as much as possible with tile. We didn't want to carry any more mud than we absolutely had to.

The mud was used to seal the ends and edges of ridge caps and secure a tile here or there. It was never used in a valley as it is too porous.

That is an open valley, no tile missing.


If I am looking at the photo properly, the valley metal does not extend all the way down to the drip edge. Not only must the valley metal extend all the way down to the drip edge, but the valley metal must extend down to the drip edge 'full width', i.e., 16" valley metal must extend down the the outside edge of the drip edge such that the corners of the 16" metal is at least at the outside edge of the drip.
