Question DetailsAsked on 5/6/2011

Cobalt-blue glazed Spanish roof tiles

I must have my house fumigated for termites. I've had the orange oil and other things done. But the last time I had someone come out and do an estimate, I was told that they would have to tent the house. And, when they do, that i would have to sign an agreement that I understand that roof tiles could get broken and they are not liable up to 10 (or maybe it was 12) broken tiles. I have the cobalt-blue glazed Spanish tiles. They are very heavy and were very expensive. The thought of them getting broken is just torturing me. I've been putting off the fumigation because of it, but I know I better do it before the house falls down around me. So, I figured I better find (1) a source of roof tiles and (2) someone to replace them before I call the fumigator, so I'll be ready. I'm also going to wait for the rainy season to be over before I do all this, just in case. I see by looking at The List that there are roofers who do repairs. But the only sources for my tiles are out of state. Any ideas?

have you bitten the bullet and allowed them to hold you hostage? I hope not- I too have a tile roof that everyone says is inevitably going to have broken tiles when tented, but that's beause they are sloppy, rushed, lazy, or stepping on them when the tarp gets stuck and they yank on it.
