The Importance of Keeping Your Tile Roof Looking Beautiful

01-24-2016

Tile roofs are a common sight in many Southwest Florida neighborhoods. The tile type varies from the traditional Spanish tiles, with their classic Mediterranean look, to the more conventional flat brand tiles that add style and help keep a house cool from the relentless Florida heat. Roofs are our first line of defense against the Sunshine state’s most treacherous elements like sun, wind, and rain. Thus, roofs should always be in prime condition.

The most crucial factor to ensure your roof will last that long is to keep it free of mold and mildew by pressure cleaning on a regular basis. Tiles that have any darkened or black patches should be cleaned right away. Otherwise, the discoloration can cause the tiles to absorb excessive heat, ultimately leading to premature deterioration.

Pressure cleaning a tile roof can be dangerous. The peaks are slippery and can be tough to maneuver on. Also, you must require the knowledge of how much pressure (PSI) is safe to apply to your tile roof. Although this task may seem like something you are able to do yourself, this is best left to the professionals. The cost of renting a pressure washing machine may well exceed the price of hiring a company like Mr Pressure Cleaning to do the job for you.
