Cleaning Composite Roof Tile the Right Way

Tile Roof In North Tampa

Most roofs need to be cleaned every few years, especially here in the Tampa Florida area. The high volume of rain, humidity, wind and other factors make having a clean roof in this city a tough task. Regular shingles absorb a lot of moisture and become much more susceptible to algae growth and potential mold. Factors like high pollution or being near a highway can even affect how dirty your roof gets.

Having the right kind of roof tile can make all the difference when it comes to having a clean roof. Tampa roof cleaning can be a regular need, but one of the ways to reduce that is by installing composite roof tiles. They are highly durable and almost never need to be cleaned. It rains often enough in Tampa that a good natural wash from a good shower can leave these roofs looking spectacular.

Unlike regular shingles, composite roof tiles from Brava (www.bravarooftile.com) are highly weatherproof. Since they are made from recycled plastic they absorb almost zero water. The chances of algae, mold, or water damage from these roof tiles are next to nothing. If they do need to be cleaned for one reason or another it is extremely easy. When the time does comes, Apple Roof Cleaning is the company to call to clean your roof.

With all the sun that Tampa gets UV damage and roof bleaching is all too common. With Brava’s composite roof tiles there’s no need to worry about your roofing becoming faded over a few years. Their roof tiles are the only kind to be Miami-Dade Certified for their UV ray protection. This means your roof will look amazing for years to come no matter how much the Florida sun throws at it.

Composite tiles are offered in many styles like cedar shake, slate and barrel tile. Most regular clay barrel roof tiles cannot be pressure washed due to their fragile nature. A powerful stream of water will shatter the tiles almost immediately. With composite barrel tiles this is no longer an issue. The highly durable plastic can withstand a high-intensity pressure wash. In most cases an aggressive pressure washing won’t even be necessary with Brava’s roof tiles.

Most roof materials need cleaning due to algae, pollution, and regular dirt but with composite roofs you’ll rarely if ever need a full deep cleaning. When you need a roof cleaning in Tampa, give us a call at (813) 655-8777

Tampa Palms Flat Tile Roof Cleaning

Here is a flat tile roof cleaning in Tampa Palms we did today 11/20/2013

The trees this home is under provide shade, but also make the black streaks come back faster. This is because the trees stop the Sun from drying the roofs moisture up. Heat and Moisture =’s Mold, it’s real simple. In the first picture, you can see some of the debris we had to blow off of this Tile Roof.

We are perfectionists when it comes to cleaning tile roofs, as you can see by the bottom picture. This roof will look even better, after it has had the benefit of a few rains. But you can still see all the edges of the tiles and the ridge caps are all nice and clean, for the holidays. Our customer was a very nice lady, who plans to have her large family over for Thanksgiving.

She has used us to clean her flat tile roof before, over 5 years ago. Tampa Palms was sending out “clean your roof or else” letters, and our trucks were cleaning other homes, on her street.

That’s how she found us, and she remembered us, all these years!

Though we are number one for almost any Tampa Roof Cleaning Search, most of our business comes from happy customers we cleaned years ago like this one, who remember us, and tell their friends.

Here is a video we made out of pictures of some of our past Tile Roof Cleaning jobs.

Many of these homes were in New Tampa. Some are in Hunters Green, and some are in Tampa Palms.

All these tile roofs, and the one slate one, were cleaned w/o walking on them, using manlifts.

Every roof we clean is evaluated for both our safety, and if it can be walked on safely, w/o breaking the roof tiles.

Some of these New Tampa Florida area customers received roof cleaning letters from their homeowners associations. Some wanted their tile roofs cleaned for other reasons.
