Now that you know why cleaning your clay tile roof is vital, it’s time to talk about how to clean it. On the surface, it’s tempting to assume that cleaning the roof is no big deal. After all, power washing your roof tiles with a mixture of water and bleach will go a long way toward scrubbing off much of the algae and debris on the roof.
However, before you head to your local home improvement warehouse to rent a power washer, please consider hiring a professional roofing contractor to clean your roof. The fact is that safely working on a roof takes a level of skill that only comes from experience.
How much experience do you have climbing a ladder and walking on your roof? Chances are, climbing up onto your roof is not something that you undertake very often. Attempting to clean your roof is a dangerous thing to do, especially if you haven’t spent extensive time working on a roof.
More so than other types of roof materials, clay tiles get very slippery when they are wet. You can imagine the accidents that can occur when an inexperienced person walks on a slippery surface that is many feet above the ground. Don’t let yourself become another accident statistic.
Clay tiles are delicate. You can crack and break them by merely walking on the roof. Unfortunately, it’s costly to replace a damaged clay tile. Professional roofers know how to maneuver on your roof in a way that keeps the clay tiles safe from harm.
Did you know that issues with your roof can go unnoticed for a long time? Indeed, it’s possible for water to silently enter your home for quite sometime before the leak becomes obvious. A roofing expert knows how to spot clues of moisture sneaking underneath the clay tiles so that repairs are possible before significant damage overwhelms your home and pocketbook.
