Concrete Tile Roof Maintenance Tips
- Inspect or Have Your Roof Inspected – Cracks, chips, and wear should always be checked for. Take a moment to look at your roof. If you notice any wear or damage, your tiles will need replacing.
- Buff Your Tiles – Your tiles can have build up occur over time. This build up comes from the concrete itself. Take a clean damp rag and buff off this build up. Whatever you do, do not use the pressure washer to remove the build up. The intense pressure can break your tiles.
- Walk Carefully – Sometimes when inspecting your roof, you may climb up and begin walking the surface looking for breaks and cracks.Distribute your weight evenly when you walk along your roof. During inspection, if you do not keep you weight even you may cause more damage than you find.
