A Quick Look at Tile Roofs
Clay tile has been an extremely popular roofing choice in Southwest Florida for decades. Their history actually stretches back thousands of years, and you’ll still find them on homes throughout the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Thanks to advances in technology and manufacturing, clay tiles are extremely resilient to extreme heat as well as moisture.
However, like anything else around your home or business, clay tiles can wear down as the years go by. When this happens, cracks can start to appear. If not addressed, those cracks can eventually lead to complete breaks that require repair.
In addition to cracks, breaks can develop due to storms – particularly hailstorms. But tree branches and, in some cases, even birds can cause damage to roof tiles. The hot Florida sun can also wear them down to the point they break.
Why You Need to Address the Problem
If you notice any broken roof tiles, you’ll need to get in touch with a professional as soon as you can. The longer you wait, the higher the chances that severe problems will occur. Moisture could seep into the underlayment of the roof, and also into the wood framing. This could lead to rot, which might require a complete roof replacement.
When moisture seeps from the roof into other areas of a home or office building, that could ruin drywall and ultimately threaten the structural integrity. Taking care of broken roof tiles as fast as possible will help you avoid this worst-case scenario.
A Dickson Roofing professional can perform a thorough inspection of your roof and then determine the best way of taking care of any cracks or breaks that may be present. We’ll then perform any repairs or replacement that may be necessary, with minimal disruption to your daily home or business routine.
Once our work is done, we highly recommend you have a professional roof cleaning performed on a regular basis. Seemingly harmless twigs and small branches from neighboring trees could cause wear and tear that could result in cracking or breaking. This debris could work underneath the tiles and ruin the underlayment.
But don’t try this kind of work yourself. You could probably do it, but the risks are simply too high. Experts know how to clear a roof of debris safely and effectively.
