ROOF MAINTENENCE TIPS:

Normal maintenance tasks will be determined by the geographical area and the exposure of the roofing; (before beginning refer to your paint manufacturer for washing and recoating requirements related to paint performance); the tasks shall include but not be limited to:

  • In very humid climates, MAXILITE is subject to the growth of algae or fungus. Such growth, which is more of an aesthetic problem rather than one of damage to the integrity of the material, can be eliminated with the application of certain fungicides. Check with the fungicide manufacturers.
  • Clean out and repair gutters, flashing around pipes, chimneys, walls and protrusions, blocked pipes or flashing as required.
  • In order to maintain the integrity of your roof, it is advisable to periodically clean off debris, such as leaves and pine needles. Wash down the roofing surfaces every 6 to 12 months with a garden hose or low pressure water spray to remove dirt and debris, or a medium bristle (nonmetal) brush that is suitable for cleaning fiber cement products.
  • Do not clean up with high pressure water blasts or sand blasting because it may damage the surface and/or fiber cement product.
    Avoid using steam cleaners or using pressurized cleaning equipment on field tile roofing.
  • Do not apply directly acid or soda on fiber cement surface. Acid solution for washing can be use to clean primer or painted fiber cement surfaces. If it is necessary, add 1 part of muriatic acid to 5 parts water. Always saturate MAXILITE surfaces with water before applying cleaning agent particularly when using an acid solution.
  • A mild detergent and soft brush may be used for stubborn dirt or stains.
  • When reapplying exterior finishes, refer to your paint manufacturer.
  • Patch damaged areas with a good quality spackling compound.
  • Brush or wipe surface to remove loose fibers, dirt or efflorescence. Remove oil and grease spots.
  • Ensure that surface is thoroughly clean and dry. Then either brush or spray a coating of top quality 100% acrylic latex exterior paint.
