Roof tiles take a beating from the wind, water, and snow. Roof tile may become cracked or broken over the course of time. A new roof is expensive and unnecessary when only minor repairs will suffice. Roof tile can easily be changed and repaired for a fraction of the cost. Here are some ways to repair roof tiles to avoid leaks.


Apply a clear roof sealant underneath a cracked tile. Press the tile down firmly to minimize the crack's appearance. Apply more sealant into the top of the crack and smooth the sealant with a putty knife.


Remove a clay tile that is cracked beyond repair. Use a flat pry bar to lift the tile located above the damaged tile.


Smash the damaged tile with a hammer. Collect the broken pieces and clear away any debris.


Attach a tile clip, if your roof uses them, to the tile and roof. Check with a local hardware store or whoever installed the tile on your roof for proper use and specific type of tile clip you'll need.


Insert a new tile and pull out the pry bar so the top tile slides back into place above the new tile.
