Tile roofs are extremely popular and beautiful roofing systems preferred by homeowners throughout Florida. They are designed for longevity and durability, and with proper maintenance, they can outlast any other roofing product on the market. As with every other roofing system, a tile roof can give you peace of mind when you create a habit of regular inspection and preventive maintenance. Here are the four major benefits of routinely cleaning and maintaining your tile roof.
1. Free Inspection
While many roofing contractors charge hundreds or thousands to carry out regular inspections on various roofing systems, a reputable local roofer will offer a free roofing inspection for your tile roofs. It’s a great way to identify issues early and schedule the necessary repairs. Regular inspections also allow you to budget for possible repairs and will help extend the remaining life of your tile roof by up to double.
2. Prolonged Roof Life
Periodic maintenance helps to catch issues early so the necessary restorations can be done, which helps extend the remaining life of your tile roof. Preventative maintenance actually costs less than the major repairs which could erupt when small issues are left unaddressed. It keeps your roof resistant to beatings from rain, hail, or snow. Regular maintenance also slows down wear and tear and deterioration. As a result, your roof lasts up to twice as long.
3. Accurate Documentation
Routine roof maintenance helps you keep accurate records about the pre-event condition of your roof. This is useful for insurance claims after storm damage or when it’s time to sell your building. Any experienced roofer knows most manufacturers void product warranties when the damage is due to poor maintenance. Additionally, insurance companies might deny your claim if you fall short of maintenance expectations. Keeping a record of maintenance on your tile roof could minimize the chances of claim denial.
4. Peace of Mind
With regular roof maintenance, you won’t need to worry about your roof again. When severe weather hits Florida, the last thing you want to worry about is whether your property and family are protected. Routine maintenance gives you peace of mind that your tile roof is in top-notch conditions and will withstand severe weather, including sunlight, rain, hail, and strong winds.
