Why Seal Your Tile Roof?

In addition to cleaning their concrete tile roofs, many homeowners choose to seal their roofs after cleaning. The benefits of sealing your roof include enhanced durability, waterproofing, and increased resistance to mold and algae regrowth. Mallard offers a two-year spot free guarantee on sealed tile roofs.

Benefits of Sealing a Tile Roof:

Enhanced Durability

Sealing a tile roof helps protect it from the harsh elements, such as intense sun, heavy rain, and salt air common in Florida. This can prevent cracks, leaks, and other damage.

Waterproofing

A good sealer creates a waterproof barrier that prevents moisture from seeping into the tiles and the underlying structure. This reduces the risk of mold, mildew, and water damage.

UV Protection

Sealers often contain UV blockers that protect the tiles from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays, which can cause fading and deterioration over time.

Mold and algae resistance

Sealing can help inhibit the growth of mold, algae, and mildew, which are common problems in Florida’s humid climate. This not only maintains the roof’s appearance but also its integrity.

easier maintenance

A sealed roof is easier to clean and maintain. The smooth surface prevents dirt, debris, and biological growth from adhering as easily, reducing the frequency and intensity of cleaning required.

aesthetic appeal

Sealing can enhance the color and overall look of your roof, giving it a more vibrant and well-maintained appearance.

Depending on the type of sealer used and the specific environmental conditions, re-sealing should typically be done every 3 to 5 years. Regular inspections should be performed to determine if re-sealing is needed sooner.

Mallard uses acrylic sealers for tile roof sealing.  These are water-based and offer good UV protection and waterproofing properties. They are breathable, allowing moisture to escape from the tiles, which helps prevent mold and mildew.
