Facts About Clay Tile Roofing
Clay tiles are made by baking molded all-natural clay at high temperatures. They are available in a variety of colors but are not prone to fading because the color is bonded to the material during the kiln-firing process. Clay roof tiles can be flat or round, simulate wood shakes, or imitate historic roofing materials. In Europe and Asia, many structures with clay tiles have remained intact for centuries.

These tiles are not like the tiles of yesteryear. They are designed to be highly resilient to moisture, heat, and other extreme conditions. When we repair a tile roof, we provide additional resistance with our advanced adhesives and application methods.
Before you decide to repair your tile roof you should have it inspected and learn about the maintenance required to keep it in optimum shape. These roofs typically require minimal maintenance and are often expected to outlast the buildings they protect. We suggest having a tile roof that is 10 years or younger inspected every other year. However, if it has surpassed the 10 year mark, doing a yearly inspection is advisable to keep it in excellent condition, especially after Florida’s notorious storms.
Though tile roofs are incredibly durable, the tiles can break. They are sensitive to weight so branches, birds, and other debris can be detrimental. If you notice that some of your tiles are broken, or suspect that you need a repair, Dickson Roofing is the company to call to avoid a major repair in the future.
