  5. how to cut concrete roof tiles
Asked: 2020-01-02 14:01:04
We have concrete roof tiles on the roof of our house. A few of them have cracks and chips in them and we want to have them replaced. Is it possible to have roof tiles, cut or do we have to replace all of the tiles to create a uniform look? There are just a few that have issues so how can they be cut if it’s possible?

The easiest way to cut a concrete roof tile is to use a wet saw. They can be very expensive and difficult to operate if you have never operated one before. It’s best to just hire roofers to replace the damaged tiles for you to ensure that everything is done properly.

Concrete roof tiles are so fragile. If you try to cut them yourself, you will probably just destroy them or end up injuring yourself. Professional roofers are used to using wet saws and know how to measure and cut the roofing tiles to the necessary sizes to ensure they fit perfectly when installed on a roof.

Unless you plan on painting all of the roof tiles, you are going to be able to tell that there are new tiles in place. New tiles will be a different shade than the older tiles simply because they haven’t been exposed to the elements as long. Cutting the tiles to fit properly can be done at any home improvement store as long as you bring the correct measurements with you to the store.

I read on description that you need to have a wet saw that you equip with a diamond-dusted masonry blade in order to cut through the tiles. There are a lot of measurements that need to be taken before you start cutting so that you can be sure that the new tile is the exact size of the tile that it is going to replace.

Concrete roofing tiles come in pretty standard sizes. Most people don’t need to cut them unless they are being placed around eves or skylights. If the tiles are just going on other places of your roof, you may not even need to cut them. I would take measurements first to ensure that you don’t waste your time making unnecessary cuts.
