How Often Should You Clean Your Tile Roof?September 28, 2017


Buying a home is likely one of the biggest purchases that you will ever make. It makes sense that you would safeguard your purchase against wear and tear, ensuring that you keep it in as good of a shape as possible! However, even when thinking of protecting your investment you likely don't think too often of your roof. The truth is that your roof needs just as much care as the rest of your home, and most people don't even realise it! Today we are going to talk about tile roofs, their benefits, and how often you need to clean them in order to keep your home in good shape.

Why choose tile roofing?

Before we dig into cleaning your tile roof we should introduce you to a few key reasons why you should have them to begin with. Tile roofing has become more and more popular over the years, particularly in places of harsh climate, because they are designed for longevity. Between concrete tile roofing and clay tile roofing you are going to get a roof that can withstand the elements, easily shed water, and properly ventilate your home. Rile roofing also has minimal upkeep needs in comparison to asphalt shingles and other roofing of the like. Despite these obvious perks, you still are going to need to do a little bit of upkeep and that leads us to our next point.

How often should tile roofs be cleaned?

Despite the fact that your tile roofing is made to last and built to be relatively maintenance free, they aren't completely hands-off. Tile roofing still requires you to get up on your roof, or hire a service, in order to keep them clean and in great shape. How often should you have your roofing cleaned? Why should you have it done so often? We are glad that you asked.

1. Get on a cleaning schedule.

Your tile roof will need maintenance no matter what, you just have to figure out how much maintenance you need. In harsher climates, like Florida where it is always rainy and humid, you need to have your roof cleaned at least once a year. In drier climates like Arizona you can get away with doing it every other year.

2. Get professional help.

Tile roofing is an excellent way to improve your home, but it can also be damaged if you don't know how to take care of it. Treading on your tile roofing can lead to increased damage so always opt for professional help when possible.
