Clay tile roofing is heavy, durable and energy-efficient, making it an ideal choice for homes in arid or semiarid climates. While Georgia isn’t exactly as warm as Arizona or New Mexico, summers in the Peach State can be just as punishing. This is why an increasing number of homeowners are beginning to see the advantages of switching to a clay tile roof for their homes.
As a roofing system, clay tiles are known for their strength, often requiring very little attention from their owners. However, they can still benefit from a professional service visit every once in a while.
Get With the Program
A regular maintenance plan is always a good idea no matter what type of material you have for your roof. Our experts recommend a full inspection at least once every year and after your roof has gone through some severe weather conditions. Routine maintenance is the key to avoiding expensive roof repair calls and keeping your clay tiles in good shape throughout the seasons.
How You Can Help
There are ways you can help maintain the integrity of your clay tiles. First off, avoid walking over them. While they are tough against the elements, they are brittle against impact forces. The added weight of a person walking over the tiles is often enough to cause cracking and, in some cases, breakage.
Secondly, keep the roof clean. Nearby trees with overhanging branches can leave behind dead leaves, fallen branches and other debris that can be detrimental to your clay tiles. Keep the roof deck clear of any objects as much as and as often as you can.
