Roof Cleaning

"Protect the roof, protect your home, protect your family. "

The damp weather 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. The worst thing that can happen hear is moisture is absorbed by the tile overlaps, leading to weak points that could result in water penetrating into your loft space. Being proactive with roof cleaning services can be significantly less expensive that roof repairs or replacements.

Like any exterior part of your home, roofs get dirty. Moss on a rooftop not only looks unsightly but it can cause problems such as gutters and downpipes becoming blocked, stopping the flow of water and causing stress and damage to your home; moreover, the additional weight of wet moss causes stress on roof tiles. Stress you and your home don’t need.

The “freeze and thaw” process in the Scottish wintertime can cause tiles to break, slip and even become a hazard. Causing the appearance of your roof to deteriorate, but it can cause the premature degradation of your roof and could cost you thousands in unnecessary and preventable repairs.

At our pre-work survey we will provide a photographic report to advise of any broken tiles or visible issues for your peace of mind.

The process:

  • We initially remove the moss by hand-scrapers or hand-brushing,
  • We then apply our specialist products to ensure that all spores are removed from the root, the tiles, overlaps and cement. Without this product application the remaining spores will multiply, resulting in further moss coverage.
  • We then soft wash and hand treat the surface to produce a clean, “like new” finish. 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.
  • We complete the works with a thorough inspection and photographic report to ensure full transparency and customer satisfaction
