All You Need to Know About Tile Roofs
Concrete roofing tile was first introduced in the 1840s by a German cement manufacturer who developed a machine to press out the tiles. The technique became popular, and you will still encounter some of those concrete tile roofs as you travel through Europe.
Today, concrete tile is made of a mixture of sand, portland cement, water, and iron oxide color pigments, and the combination varies between manufacturers. The mixture is extruded under heat and high pressure to form nearly any shape and is then sealed.
High-density, extruded concrete tiles are among the most durable of roofing materials and can withstand the abuse of Florida’s ever-changing weather. It has a long life, adds resale value to your home, and delivers lower utility costs through better energy efficiency.
Concrete tile roofs offer you a wide variety of colors to choose from: terra cottas, ocean blues, refreshing greens, and earth tones. There are many available textures and styles, from the traditional S-shaped style of clay tile to rectangular shapes that mimic slate and shakes.
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.
In spite of their durability, individual tiles can still break. This is most often caused by birds, hail, and flying debris that make their way onto the roof. Tiles are sensitive to weight, so avoid walking on your roof unless absolutely necessary. They are also susceptible to the build-up of dirt and debris caused 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.
