A tile roof offers many advantages to both homes and businesses. It looks great, lasts a long time and is strong against storms. However, without a little tile roof maintenance, it won’t you’ll lose some of the advantages tile roofing offers.
Keep Your Roof Clean
Trees in Tampa drop leaves at the strangest time. Palms can make a mess anytime of year as well. That means your roof may often have debris accumulating on it. That debris lowers the curb appeal of your property. Keeping it clean is simple, if you do it before the debris begins to decay. You can use a gas or battery powered blower to remove the debris. Be careful if you want on the tile, especially if you have clay tile. We don’t recommend electric ones because the cord tends to get caught on the edges of the shingles.
If the debris has already deteriorated and you have mold, algae or sludge, a pressure washer is an effective tool. Remember to only spray down your roof’s surface as spraying up can do damage and lead to a roof leak. Some roof cleaning companies offer this service as well.
If you haven’t done a good job of tile roof maintenance, chances are that when you do get it cleaned that the debris will have left stains. That may be able to be removed, but it may not. One option for some tile roofs is a tile roof coating. Talk to your roofing company about your roof and what options you have.
