Topic: removing screed on brick tiles

The flat roof of my house has brick tiles . The tiles are joined by "teep" (cement plaster to hold the brick tiles together) . On top of these tiles screed of cement was done. 

 Now the screed is cracked at various places & this is leading to water leakage I am thinking of removing the screed & getting the "teep" redone.  After getting the teep redone, I will not use cement screed  as it cracks easily & does not help in waterproofing the roof.

A) How to remove the screed from the tiles ?  

B) Will I be able to reuse the tiles after removing the screed & do "teep". 

C) What percentage of tiles can get damaged in the process? 

D) What other waterproofing method can be adopted ?

 Thank you !

Dear Chander
         Hire mason for doing the job. Remove the screed and tile. Re lay the tiles in proper slope ,  First grout the joints and than after cleaning do the cement pointing.
