Maintenance and Repair Information
Clay is quite expensive when compared with other roofing materials, and it is also quite fragile, which means it can crack and break when struck by hail, large limbs, or other debris. Fortunately, clay roofing is easy to repair; it’s relatively simple to remove the broken tiles and replace them. Maintenance is minimal and requires nothing more than a good cleaning. In some cases it can be wise to reapply the protective outer coating which keeps clay from becoming brittle with repeated exposure to hot and cold elements every few years.
