If Your Roof is Covered in Moss, It’s Time to Have it Cleaned.
Why do I require my roof cleaning?
When it comes to your roof, like any other part of your home, it has a habit of getting very dirty. Moss, lichens & dirt not only creates an eyesore but can cause bigger problems. In extreme cases where there are large amounts of moss and lichens, after becoming wet they become much heavier, putting extra stress on your roof tiles/slates.
This can cause breaks, cracks and leaks, as well as causing blockages in your guttering system – preventing the drainage from your roof to the ground.All these factors left untreated can cause the rapid decline in the integrity of your homes roof, and cost thousands to repair. Having your roof cleaned not only prevents all these problems – but will also add value by making your home look as new as the day it was built.
How do we clean your roof?
We are fully trained in all types of access and all works are fully insured. After initially assessing all the access & cleaning requirements to complete the job safely, we temporarily block your downspouts to prevent blocking. We will then in most cases power wash the roof; starting at the ridge then working our way down to the eaves, thus preventing any leakage into your roof space.
If your roof is deemed to be fragile or at risk of damage by power washing, then we will hand brush down the roofs before using a biochemical treatment, which is applied to the affected areas. The roofs will then be washed down to remove the moss and lichens thus slowing down their future return.
You won’t even know when your house will be filled with some fresh, warm glow.
