Spanish tile roofing


Need to remove some Spanish tiles from a roof so I can install new flashing for a furnace flue pipe. Any advice on doing that? I won't be reinstalling the tiles so no worries there.

Thanks!

"I won't be reinstalling the tiles so no worries there."
Why? You need to elaborate on that. Flashing alone won't cover the issue.

The tiles should just lift off with only a copper nail at the tops. You'll need 4# sheet lead to flash in the collar.

Thanks for the response. Sorry I didn't explain why I'm not putting the tiles back on.
My new furnace installation is due for inspection tomorrow and the homeowner can't reach the roofing contractor. To be ready for the inspection, I need to install my flue vent and roof jack. As long as I can get that done, the owner can have a qualified roofer properly reinstall the roof tile later.

Well, DO NOT nail anything to the roof deck then. The flashing has to be weaved into the tile and it will be suspended from the deck.
