The damp climate in the UK can have an adverse effect on roof tiles as they become more porous with age. Over time this can create the perfect conditions for moss, algae, and lichen to grow on the tiles. This, in turn, may lead to problems that could become expensive as a result of too much moisture being absorbed by the tile overlaps, resulting in condensation in your loft.
When it comes to roofs, like any part of your home, they have a habit of getting dirty. Moss on a rooftop not only looks unsightly but it can cause problems such as gutters and downpipes becoming blocked; moreover, the additional weight of wet moss causes stress on the roof tiles.
In Winter the “freeze and thaw” process can cause tiles to break. Not only are these causing the appearance of your roof to deteriorate, but it can cause the premature degradation of your roof and could cost you thousands in repairs.
Roof Cleaning is fast, safe & affordable, it improves the look of your home and can add value to your property. Using our soft washing method using eco-friendly biodegradable products that we apply at low-pressure, causing no damage to your roof tiles, we will advise beforehand of any broken tiles or problems that are visible. We initially remove the moss by hand-scrapers or hand-brushing, then apply our specialist products. This will ensure that all spores are removed from the root, from the tiles, overlaps and cement. If such a product is not used, the remaining spores will multiply, resulting in further moss coverage. High-pressure washing should also never used on such delicate surfaces, as the spores will remain on the tiles and in UK weather conditions, the algae or moss will again grow swiftly.
