I have a 12 year old concrete tile roof in SW Florida, that has been through two hurricanes, Charlie and Wilma. It is a two story house, all hip roof with a 5/12 pitch. The tiles are cemented in and not screwed. The only damage after the second storm was that ten tiles came loose on the second story at the eave and three ridge tiles came loose. The roof looks to be in good condition, but some tiles do move and slide down when walked on. Some roofers are telling me that the roof has shifted and will tear up the 90 lb. felt, and that the whole roof needs to be replaced. Does this seem likely?

There's a long thread at this site:

If the underlayment isn't torn, you can reset the tiles. Details and materials are in the thread.

If the underlayment (tar paper; roof felt, whatever) is however torn, the roofing deck is no longer weather proof. There's plenty of different patch materials you can get at a local home improvement store. Get several opinions before purchasing materials.
