What You Should Know about Tile Roofs
Modern-day clay tiles are available in a number of beautiful shapes, such as: curved, flat or fluted. Typical color choices are shades of terracotta and patina green. They are highly resilient to heat, moisture and other extreme conditions—perfect for Southwest Florida. We enhance this resilience with advanced application methods and adhesives.
Tile roofs should only be installed and repaired by skilled roofing contractors like Dickson Roofing who have experience with the materials as well as the precision required during installation to ensure that your roof will not leak.
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.
There are a number of tile options including, extruded concrete and clay. Tile roofs like these are specifically designed to withstand the abuse caused by Florida’s ever-changing weather. They have long lives and add resale value to your home. Plus, they can deliver lower utility costs as they are an energy efficient option.
In spite of their durability, individual tiles can still break. This is most often caused by birds, hail, and flying debris that makes its 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. So it is important to get your tile roof cleaned when you notice any of these things.
The cost to repair a tile roof is dependent upon the damage. Let the experts at Dickson Roofing come out and inspect your roof and provide you with a detailed report. Give us a call today at 239.514.1100 for a free consultation and estimate.
