Checklist for Winter Preparation: Have Your Tile Roof Inspected

Having a tile roof in places where winters are cold and harsh can be a real lifesaver. Tiles are very resistant and can protect against the harshest of elements. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do a proper inspection. That means contracting a company to give your roof a once over before the cold season arrives.

That usually means checking that there are no cracked or damaged tiles, and replacing the ones that are found to be faulty. Changing the tiles at the right time can mean the difference between having a calm winter and not. That’s because, although tiles do last for a very long time, the ones that do break or get damaged can compromise your whole roofing system. Water and moisture can get in and affect all of the structure underneath the roof.

Also, you need to make sure that your tiles are clean going into the cold season. Gunk, moss and algae can gather up between the tiles and when low temperatures come around, they can freeze and crack them. Luckily, cleaning tiles is a fairly easy thing to do – all you need is some soap and a pressurized water cleaner, although you might want to ask professional Denver roofers with experience for help to make sure the job is done right and safely.
