Painting a terra cotta clay tile roof?


Can a clay tile be painted? and if so with what? it is a 6year old terra cotta clay tile roof. What are the pros/cons to painting the roof vs pressure washing? Thanks for any advice.

Terra cotta has a very long life.

Once you paint it, you will be stuck with a long term maintenance problem. Eventually the paint will have to be removed to recoat.

It could also reduce the value of the home.
