Sealing Your Tile Roof Will Save You Money

October 4, 2013

A beautiful new roof is an exciting thing to see for any homeowner. However, the weather assault on that roof starts when your contractor completes the installation.

Sealant application is an essential part of a comprehensive roof maintenance program. Roof sealant extends your roofing system’s life, saving you money. A tile roof may cost as much as a car. Yet, many homeowners don’t maintain their roofs like their cars, resulting in costly and largely preventable repairs. Over the years, a roof takes quite a beating, especially during the rainy and hurricane season in South Florida. A good maintenance program becomes more important here in Florida.

Tile Sealer Extends The Life Of Your Roof!

A tile sealer is similar to a sealer for your car’s paint. Our sealer is a clear coat, essentially invisible from the ground. The tile sealant protects against many of the most common causes of roof damage. While a clear sealer can offer protective properties for a while, you must apply it annually to be effective. Your roofing tiles are more susceptible to organic growth without a tile sealer—mold and mildew form in a roof’s pores, cracks, and crevices. UV rays degrade your tiles, too. Deterioration is more prevalent in highly porous tiles such as the ones made of clay and concrete.

We have seen roofs that have failed after just a few short years only from neglect and lack of maintenance. Other tile roofs we see have lasted to the end of their life expectancy. It makes all the difference when one takes extra care and implements a proper roof maintenance program. Remember, not all roof maintenance programs are the same. Only a licensed roofer should work on your roof at any time. Anyone else performing roofing work may void your warranty.
