Homeowners have a wide range of options when it comes to roofing materials. You can choose between materials like asphalt, metal or even wood if you’re looking for something more environmentally friendly. While these are all good materials, there is one that you shouldn’t forget to consider: concrete tile, which can last for a significantly long time. However, keep in mind that your concrete tile roof will only last so long as it’s properly maintained.
Here are a few tips you can follow to maintain your concrete tile roofing system.
When trying to maintain your concrete tile roof, roofers strongly recommend that you keep up with your roof’s regular inspection requirements. That way, they can check if any of the tiles or accessories on your roof are damaged and in need of repairs or replacement. As much as possible, have your roof inspected at least twice a year: once in the spring and another inspection during the autumn.
Clean the Roof
Every now and then, be sure to have a professional clean your roofing system. Have the contractor remove any dirt and debris from the roof as they can retain moisture that can damage your roof. If moss or lichens are beginning to grow on your roof as well, don’t hesitate to ask your roofer to clean the concrete tile roof with a pressure washer if needed.
Check Your Roof’s Ventilation
Ventilation is very important for a roofing system as it allows for proper air circulation and prevents moisture buildup in your roof. With that in mind, make sure to have a professional check and see if your current attic ventilation is still adequate for your concrete tile roof.
