If you have noticed moss appearing on your roof it is best to get the roof cleaned sooner rather than later to prevent damage to your roof and roof tiles
We are able to restore many moss covered roofs back to their former glory both cosmetically and functionally.
The cost of roof cleaning is considerably cheaper than replacing your roof, which will be needed if you ignore moss, algae and lichen growth.
Both roofs and gutters tend to get neglected regardless of the fact they are hugely important to the structure and image of our homes.
If your roof is covered in moss you are at risk of damp as the moss acts as a sponge and absorbs rainwater, therefore wet moss sitting against the tiles which in time will start to cause the structure to rot.
With the constant weather battle we face, from rain to snow, sunshine to hail storms we are offering the perfect environment for moss to harbour on our roofs.
With this being said, you may find some years you require more frequent roof cleanings or extra roof maintenance than normal.
An intense wind or hail storm may cause damage to your roof tiles. Any time you notice leaking, missing tiles or other signs of damage we urge you to call us right away as we also not only offer roof cleaning, but we offer roof repairs too.

When it comes to roof cleaning, there are a number of different methods used.
We are going to go into a little more detail on the process followed when Pressure Washing a roof, by pressure washing your roof we will thoroughly remove all traces of moss, lichens and other forms of fungi that have made themselves at home on your roof.
Firstly, we would carry out a visual roof survey and undertake a risk assessment to ensure all health and safety is followed.
Once we are happy all health and safety has been covered and we are happy to proceed, our fully trained technicians will carry out a full roof inspection and check for any loose or cracked tiles before going ahead with the pressure washing. We will also protect your downpipes before getting started and empty all debris from your gutters once we have finished.
Our Pressure washers have pressure controls to suit the different surfaces being cleaned. We would set the lance up to the correct pressure and water flow. Rest assured pressure washing does not damage the roof tiles which is one of the main reasons why we set our machinery to the correct pressure ensuring there is no danger of too much pressure being used resulting in damage to the tile surface.
Once the tiles have been pressure washed, we apply an Anti-Fungal treatment to prevent any regrowth for a considerable amount of time and as we mentioned previously, all of your gutters will be cleared of any debris from the roof.
