There are 3 basic steps you can take to extend the life of your tile roofing: regular inspections, timely repairs and ongoing maintenance. Additionally, because tile roofing can be difficult to handle, it is best to hire a professional roofing contractor experienced in tile roofing to assist you.
3 Tile Roofing Maintenance & Repair Tips
#1. Roofing inspection
Tile roofing should be inspected carefully without walking around on the tiles in order to avoid hurting yourself, breaking the tile or voiding your tile roof warranty. This is often difficult to accomplish, especially on steep-pitched roofs.
Hiring a reliable roofing contractor is the way to go with this type of a roof. Remember, the inspectors at All Roofing Solutions are skilled and trained to conduct a comprehensive maintenance check to determine the extension of any potential roof damage so don’t hesitate, call us for an inspection today!
#2. Roofing repairs
If you spot damaged tiles, you should contact a local roofing repair contractor to make immediate repairs. Putting off a crack here or there can lead to moisture permeation and more extensive damage, so it is critical to make repairs before even nastier weather sets in.
There are certain things you as a homeowner can do to temporarily stop the damage in its tracks before a professional roofing company can offer a more permanent solution. Remember to handle any emergency roof repairs with care and keep safety in mind when up on your roof.
#3. Roof maintenance
It is critical to hire a reputable contractor to clean your tile roof regularly. Thorough cleaning includes removing loose debris and cleaning around skylights, chimneys and valleys. Pressure cleaning is appropriate in some cases, but make sure that no harsh chemicals are used.
Also, consider repainting a dingy tile roof. Your roof can be painted with acrylic paint, or coated with some waterproofing agents to restore its look and performance.
