A critical component to keeping your tile roof (ceramic, clay, slate, concrete or other) leak free and achieve the maximum lifespan, is regular cleaning and maintenance of the tile roof system.
A crucial part of this is removing organic debris especially if you have lots of tree cover like the oak trees in the well established towns like Winter Park, Windermere, Longwood and Lake Mary. This organic debris builds up in the valleys and other spillway areas where large volumes of water need to freely move. This causes damning and can back up the valleys causing them to overflow.
Another issue is the wet leaves and debris sit on the galvanized metal causing it to rust and fail. This rotting organic debris will cause havoc on your waterproofing layers over time. Regularly have your roof and gutters cleaned of debris to ensure optimal performance and longevity of your roof system.
