What Should I Know About Inspection and Repair?
In general, tile roofs – whether concrete, slate, or clay – will require minimal maintenance and can be expected to outlast the buildings they protect.
Despite 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.
When broken tiles need to be replaced, hire Dickson Roofing to replace them quickly to avoid a major repair in the future. We know tile roofs and will repair and restore your tile roof to your standards and expectations.
You should also have your roof inspected every other year if it is less than ten years old (once a year for an older roof) and following any major storm to help keep it in excellent condition.
How Should I Inspect My Roof for Damage?
Do NOT climb onto your roof to inspect it! Roof walking is dangerous and best left to the professionals. From the safety of the ground or through a window, examine the roof from there with binoculars for signs of trouble. If you notice any damage, contact Dickson Roofing to inspect the roof and repair the problem correctly.
What Do I Do About Cleaning the Roof?
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.
If nearby trees are constantly dropping leaves, branches, twigs, and other debris on your roof, be diligent about removing them from your roof. If you don’t, the tiles will begin to wear out and crack, or the debris will work its way under the tiles and destroy the integrity of the underlayment.
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.
