Maintenance Tips to Extend the Life of Your Tile Roof

Your roof is in place to protect your family, yourself and your employees from the elements. Maintaining the structural integrity of the surface is crucial to maintaining your future home. If you are seeking minimal maintenance and a superior level of resistance for your roofing structure, consider some of these top solutions for extending the lifespan of your roof!

Flashing Inspections

Flashing needs to be done to protect your building and the aesthetics inside. Flashing can help to prevent leaks and repair your roof accordingly. Installing top flashing can work to keep water atop your roof, bridge gaps in walls and opening and transition water away from your leak prone areas. This is an excellent tool for prevention and a fantastic way to protect your roofing systems.

Regular Cleaning

Regular roof cleaning can make sure that you can prevent mould growth and black algae formation. Cleaning a roof offers many benefits including a prolonging of the lifespan on roofing materials, maintaining the value of your building and more.

Tile Repair

Having broken tiles repaired across your roof can make sure that you can save the whole structure. When cracks and leaks occur, these can cause ongoing deterioration. Your roof tile can continue to leak and cause damage inside your home without the proper replacements and repairs.


Getting inspections, especially after a storm has occurred can be crucial. A regular semi annual inspection can make sure that you can enjoy a roof that will not be subject to consistent and costly repairs. You can also save money on your homeowners insurance.
