Terracotta Roof Restoration Process

Replacing Broken, and Cracked Tiles

Your home’s terracotta tile roofing will require restoration and care over time in order to maintain its beauty and safety. Terracotta tile roofing has a beautiful and elegant appearance and helps to keep the space cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but it loses its gloss with time and individual tiles crack. Brennan Roofing’s Terracotta tile roof repair expertise can handle all aspects and restore terracotta tile roofing to its former glory.

Restoring Broken Ridge Capping

At various edge lines, the roof surfaces connect. Ridge capping is a technique for filling the gap between two surfaces. The ridge cap tiles have a triangular form to them. The same material as the rest of the roof tiles is used for the ridge capping. Terracotta ridge capping will be used on a terracotta roof.

Their major responsibility is to prevent leaks by preventing rainfall from entering the roof hollow. Water that has accumulated on your roof’s interior structure might cause serious damage. Ridge caps are mortared or flexible bedding compounded to the terracotta tiles that cover the roof’s surface.

This mortar loses its grip over time and may break, compromising the integrity of the ridge capping and allowing water to flow through.

Replacing Valley Irons

Valleys and flashings are installed at the intersection of two terracotta roof surfaces. Rust, moisture, filth and dust, and broken branches are some of the factors that contribute to the valleys and flashings’ short lifespan; otherwise, it should last for about twenty years.

Valleys and flashings should be cleaned, maintained, repaired, and replaced as needed on a regular basis; we also install high-quality COLORBOND valleys.

Replacing Rusted and Damaged Flashings

For your roof flashing, you’ll have a variety of metal alternatives to pick from. Aluminum, steel, and copper are the most prevalent metals.
Steel is the most frequent metal used for roof flashing nowadays. It gives you a neat appearance that is within most people’s finances. If you want to update your look, copper looks wonderful and lasts longer, but it will cost you more up front.
Roof flashing, as the name implies, is used to deflect water away from specific parts of your roof. If not properly protected, these places are the most vulnerable to leakage.
Is it true that because your roof flashing is so crucial, you should replace your existing flashing when you obtain a new roof? The answer will vary depending on the situation and the state of the metal.
When you have a new roof, keep in mind that you won’t always have to replace your roof flashing. Your flashing should outlast the original roof it was built on, regardless of the type of metal it is comprised of.

Removing Moss From the Roof

At the time of installation, terracotta tile roofing is bright and dazzling, but it loses its luster over time, and moss buildup is one of the key causes of a dull appearance, aside from the usual dust.
The following is the procedure for removing moss buildup and restoring your polished terracotta roofing:
If you have a water tank, disconnect it. This prevents any cleaning chemicals from contaminating your home’s principal water storage.
Using an anti-moss and anti-fungal solution to spray the roof
After allowing the chemicals to do their work, our experts will use a high-pressure water jet to clean the whole roof.

Sealing the Terracotta Roof

On unglazed tiles, a terracotta roof glaze can be used to seal your roof. Terracotta tiles are naturally waterproof, but they can be made even more so by applying a glaze. Roofs must be properly maintained in order for the sealer/glaze to keep its waterproof properties.

Brennan Roofing employs a high-quality solution that helps to prevent water, oils, and other fluids from passing through the surface and damaging the terracotta. The glazing solution also allows any fluid in the pores to evaporate, ensuring that there is minimal or no fluid buildup. Glazing terracotta tiles ensures that they last for a long time.
