Caring for Your Clay Tile Roof
The classic tile roofs of the Mediterranean and Caribbean are clay tile. They exude Old World charm that date back to ancient times. Unlike the clay tiles of centuries past, however, modern-day clay tiles are highly resilient to heat, moisture, and other extreme conditions—perfect for Southwest Florida. Dickson Roofing adds even more resilience with advanced application methods and adhesives.
INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE
In general, a tile roof – concrete or clay – requires minimal maintenance and can be expected to outlast the building it protects. Modern ceramic tiles are made from a mixture of impact-resistant minerals and other durable substrates and are sturdier than they look. They may occasionally require roof repair, but having your roof inspected every other year if it is under 10 years old (once a year for an older roof) or after any major storm will help keep it in excellent condition.
Although durable, individual tiles can still break. This is most often caused by hail, birds, and other objects that make their way onto the roof. Clay tiles are also sensitive to weight, so avoid walking on your roof unless absolutely necessary. If broken tiles need to be replaced, hire Dickson Roofing to replace them quickly to avoid a major repair in the future.
Like any other roofing system, tiles are susceptible to the build-up of dirt and debris caused primarily by nearby trees with overhanging branches. The leaves can block water flow on the roof and create the perfect environment for mold growth.
While it’s tempting to try cleaning the roof yourself, you run the risk of damaging the tiles while attempting to clear out the debris. Instead, entrust this task to Dickson Roofing as often as needed to maintain a strong, damage-free roof.
