Clay Tile Maintenance Tips

Caring for your clay tile roof properly extends its lifespan while preserving its beauty and functionality. Here are practical tips for routine maintenance and cleaning and advice on identifying issues that require professional attention.

Routine Maintenance and Cleaning

  • Conduct visual inspections of your roof bi-annually to identify cracked, broken, or missing tiles.
  • Remove leaves, twigs, and other debris from the roof surface and gutters to prevent water buildup and ensure proper drainage.
  • For cleaning, use a low-pressure water spray and mild detergent. Avoid high-pressure washing, which can damage the tiles.
  • Prevent debris accumulation and reduce the risk of damage from falling branches by keeping nearby trees trimmed.

Spotting Potential Issues

  • Look for visible signs of damage, such as cracks or breaks in the tiles. Even small cracks can allow water to seep through and cause issues.
  • Areas of discoloration may indicate water pooling or the growth of moss, algae, or fungi, which can compromise the roof’s integrity.
  • Keep an eye out for tiles that seem misplaced or loose. These can be signs of the underlayment failing or other structural issues.
  • Efflorescence appears as a white, powdery deposit on the surface of the tiles. It is caused by water moving through the material, dissolving salts naturally present, and then evaporating, leaving the salt residue on the surface.

Clay Tile Roofing FAQs

Clay tiles are among the most cost-effective roofing options in the long run. Though initially, the cost might seem high, it’s likely the last roof you’ll ever need for your house. There are clay tile roofs that have lasted for hundreds of years. On average, you can expect a clay tile roof to last over 50 years and up to 100 years.
Clay roof tiles offer excellent protection against heavy winds and storms thanks to their strong exterior.
The design of clay tile installations promotes natural airflow underneath the tiles, creating a barrier that helps keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
The cost of a clay tile roof varies depending on several factors, including the size and complexity of the roof, the type of clay tile, the color and finish, and labor costs.
While technically possible, clay tile is not generally recommended for flat roofs due to its weight and potential for water pooling. It performs best on pitched roofs with a proper slope for drainage.
