- Buy tiles that blend with the décor of your house and take extensive steps to look for the best quality. Take a little help from professionals on this front and make sure you invest in something valuable.
- Inspect the houses’ roofing regularly to keep a check on what is happening up there. Check for any damages after storms or hailstone showers. After fall you can look for dried leaves and dirt accumulation and simply clean it to maintain it for the long run.
- Cleaning the gutters regularly is very important. You don’t want water to get accumulated there which can happen because of accumulation of dry leaves, or any breakage which makes the outside wall dirty too.
- Remove the hanging limbs of trees which are starting to touch your houses’ roofing. Chances are that your roof will be damaged pretty soon because of the excessive weight of these limbs and they can further abrade the protective layer of coating on your roof in time.
- Animal damages are the most common damages on the roofs. As squirrels, rats and even chipmunks are frequent visitors at your roof it is probable they try to build their own home up there. And if certain areas have rotten or have a hole, they are sure to move in and dirty the roofing even more.
- Keep insects off the roof. Some areas have too many ants and insects crawling on the wall and climbing to the roof which makes it the perfect place to slowly destroy the base. Keep a check and frequently spray repellants to keep it clean.
- Check the attics very closely for minor damages which may escalate to create a major impact on the roofing. It is these small breakages and holes that gets ignored, and later cause problems with dust and even animals getting into the roofing and spoiling the whole house.
- No hard objects should be kept on the roof and this includes you walking on it too. The roof tiles are sure solid and have a coating but you never know what weight can break a tile or take that coating off to seriously damage the roofing.
- Taking help from a professional is sure going to benefit you! Hire a professional and make them visit you again and again after intervals to get the roof checking done frequently. You might not be good at maintenance, and you should be ready to look out for a professional’s advice!
- Make sure that water never clogs on your roof. Not only will the accumulated water attract more algae and insects but it shall also rot the tiles and damage them.
